Well I thought I'd send out a little message about what I remember of
Coronation. (And it was a dry site even!)
I truly liked the layered setup of the hall. It was great to get to
sit in back and still see! It was almost as if they had designed it
for such occasions. The trying to cover up some of the mundanity of
it being a high school caffeteria was good, but not quite enough.
(The silly sign about thinking was right in front of me though. And
the clock always saying 2:50 was confusing.)
The schedule seemed to be typical SCA timeframes. *smile* I was very
glad to get a good stretching bout between the stepping down court and
the coronation court. (Although there didn't seem to be an anouncement
before the coronation court started. It was just sorta there and in
your face all of the sudden.) I didn't stay for the late court to know
what happened then.
As for music, I have to admit that the live performances (even with
some drummer changing drums after every song *grin*) were *much*
better than the silly taped music. I might have been a little biased
since the musicians were playing about 10' from my table during feast.
There were *lots* of awards (with a bunch (19?) of Knights holding the
sword of state during the first court; I only saw about a half a dozen
during the coronation court) including a Laurel for Ariela (sp),
something for Moriel (if I remember correctly), and the new Baron and
Baroness of Stargate being announced. (Michael Silverhand and ???)
Probably lots more happened, but my memory ain't what it used to be.
(And get worse every day apparently.)
