Friday May 1
Garb optional - no stress about changing as soon as you arrive. Dinner will be available whenever people arrive, even the wee small hours. (Alas, we've abandoned our quiz-plans, as there's simply too much on).
After dinner, there will be vigils for the morrow's ceremonies and time for the Crown to meet with those who wish to contest Crown Tournament. Peerage Orders might wish to have informal meetings, so that Sunday's formal meetings can fit within half an hour (the chapel will be available for any who wish to use it for this purpose).
This is the first day of the Anno Societatis Fifty - enjoy it!
Morning: Archery tournament, Arts and Sciences Competitions, then Court - White Scarf, and Lochac's (perhaps the Known World's) first Masters of Defense.
Afternoon: Crown Tournament
Evening: Victory Feast early in the evening, then a bonfire for late-night revelry (weather permitting)
Meetings first thing in the morning, then fencing; before an early lunch and a quick pack-up.
