Spring Crown Letter of Intent Deadline

Tags

, ,

Greetings unto all those intending to enter Spring Crown Tournament.

Please be aware that both the combatant and the consort must submit a joint letter of intent, either through the following link (preferred): http://surveys.eastkingdom.org/index.php/372252?lang=en or by email to TRH Prince Brennan mac Fearghus and Princess Caoilfhionn inghean Fhaolain with a copy to the Kingdom Seneschal.

The Letters of Intent must be received prior to 11:59 p.m. on April 7, 2018, which is Coronation. If using email, the letters of intent must include all of the following information for both combatant and consort: Society name, legal name, address, telephone number, years of residency, a statement that both the combatant and consort affirm that they do not have knowledge of any legal basis why they would not be able to legally cross the United States/Canadian international border for the duration of their reign, and be accompanied by proof of membership with membership number & expiration date that is valid at least thirty days after Crown. If both entrants are combatants, then that should be clearly indicated.

A recent change to Kingdom Law requires that the consorts be present at Crown Tournament.

Should you wish for Their Highnesses to grant any allowable exception to the requirements, be sure to clearly state your request in your letter of intent.

TRH also request that combatants bring heraldic shields for the list trees.

Google for Non-Profit Migration – Local Seneschals please review.

The Webministry has asked, they have been patient, they have reminded, yet, they still do not have the required information from the following groups:

Distant Shore

Forestgate

Frosted Hills

Hadchester

Ivyeinrust

Northern Outpost

Rusted Woodlands

Seashire

Smithwick

Basingestoches

 

The following groups need to complete their information:

Hartshorn-dale

Lyndhaven

Stonemarche

 

I have instructed the Kingdom Chronicler to only publish official email addresses in the Regnum of next month’s Pikestaff.  East Kingdom Law requires officers of the East Kingdom and their deputies to use their officially-provided online account for all business of their Office. If your group does not have official email addresses, your group will be in violation of East Kingdom Law and will be suspended.

Please make sure that all of the required information is sent to the Webministry immediately.

Thank you.
