[SCA]Kingdom Differences

I asked the Merry Rose today about which kingdom we're doing the Pennsic basket for. This is the response:

Being May and not knowing who is going to be Royal at Pennsic seems a little odd so I decided to look up the An Tir website. Coronation will be in July. It LOOKS like Crown will be May 18-19. Okay, that makes more sense (in that Kingdoms are different what do you mean two months as Prince/Princess way). For a while there I couldn't tell when Crown was going to be. So if they want personalized stuff for the Royals then I suggest people keep an eye out for the Crown Results.

Personally I think the idea of a wooden chest is cool - as long as included with the wooden chest is some sort of offer to make sure that the Chest gets shipped to An Tir so that the Royals don't have to worry about it.
