We would like to thank everyone for making this summer as fun as it has been. With lots of smiles and great events, it is easy to see why it is good to be Northshield.
So this is it, the BIG announcement. We have chosen the Village of Orlova Dolina to host ourCoronation this September 11th and our Shire of Silfren Mere willhost our Crown Tournament on October 9th.
At our Coronation we will host three contests of skill. These will be Her Majesty’s ArmouredChampion, His Majesty’s Rapier Champion, and an A&S contest with the themeof the York during the time of the Viking invasion of Britain. For the latter, we encourage documentation and the ability to talk to us about your entry. There will be a comment sheet so you can receive feedback and will include two categories, Peer and non-Peer. We are very excited to see what everyone comes up with.
