Greetings from agha Yasamin begam, Crown Tournament Event Steward.

We look forward to hosting you, the people of the Heartland, in the Barony of Vatavia, at this most festive occasion! To further your enjoyment, here are the details of the day.

Crown Tournament will be held at the Andover Community Center in the 13th Street Sports Parks, 1008 E. 13th St. Andover KS, 67002, Andover, Kansas. Site opens to the populace at 9:00.

Weather permitting, the Tournament will take place outdoors. Space around the list field for sunshades is first come, first served. Gate, meals and meetings will take place inside the hall. Fighters are welcome to engage in martial activities once the tournament is complete.

Alcohol is permitted in the areas of the park which we have rented--the Community Center and the outdoor tournament area. Alcohol is absolutely prohibited in any other areas of the park, and especially absolutely prohibited on the streets outside the park. We are the first group to take advantage of the city's outdoor space use policy, so infractions will very likely be noticed. Please respect our landlord's rules!
