As of March 16, 2020, all events scheduled in the Northern California and Northern Nevada regions of the West Kingdom are cancelled, per the Crown of the West. This is in compliance with current Federal restrictions applying to the lower-48 states against gatherings of 50 people or more, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The Principality of Oertha (Alaska) and the Barony of the Far West (Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Guam) should follow their local, state, and federal guidelines during this period and act within those rules.
There is no definitive timeline for resuming central Kingdom events yet, but anticipate the ban to last at least through mid-May 2020. More information will be forthcoming about how this will affect Western Crown Tourney and Mists Coronet Tourney in the immediate future, as well as other events in the coming months.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and the Western Crown and Kingdom Seneschal are working closely together and monitoring information released from State and Federal officials. They are acting in the best interests of the West Kingdom, and the health, safety, and well-being of the Populace is foremost in their minds. Please continue to support them as they face these difficult decisions going forward.

Come one, come several to the 4th Ravenshore Fool's Tournament! Hosted at the same location as the last 3 years, this scenic area is surrounded by trees, trees, and a few more trees for good measure. In keeping with tradition, we will be hosting a foolishly Heavy tournament, with a few melee's sprinkled in for extra flavor. The Odd Bodkins will once again be gracing Ravenshore with their presence, and will be hosting an Archery tournament for all to enjoy. Both tournaments will have prizes, with additional trinkets and baubles for winners of the melees. We even have a silent auction this year! We'll have music, a Friday evening spaghetti dinner, and our traditional potluck feast Saturday night, and enough foolishness to last you at least 84 hours. Who will Ravenshore's next mighty Fool be? Only time will tell...
Event Steward: Anthony of Ravenshore (Tony Rakes) — Phone: 707-489-5099 — E-mail: Ravenshore.Seneschal@gmail.com
