More to the point, Queen's may draw more than 75 fighters and has run over
100. Figure that into a double elimination tournament and the result is
more than 150 bouts in 9 rounds. That takes a while. Add in a youth
tournament (Queen's Hope) and the various bits we and the Queen do for one
another to create the atmosphere of the day and, well, that takes the
whole day.

Of course, we will adjust to a compressed schedule to make it work with
Coronation, as we would not do less for our Queen ... and King. :-)
