> I'm hoping we can make Prizes easier to schedule.A little advice from a former PRM and current KRM, on easier prize
scheduling. The way our system is set up, the RMIC (who is usually
the PRM/KRM at Principality/Kingdom level events) is usually in the
best position to work with the "powers that be" to get eric time at
events. A couple of things that can help - request time early and
have more than one event in mind.
I and many RMICs start planning rapier activities 2-4 months prior to
the event. For Crowns/Coronets, I start planning earlier because I
know who I am working with. For Coronations/Investitures, I have a
more general idea, but nothing is set in stone until someone drops in
finals and I know who I am dealing with.
Crown and Coronet Tourney days are packed. There is little eric
space available and you are unlikely to get Royal attention. When I
have been there, the Mists runs rapier concurrent with the early
rounds of Coronet and may have better eric availability during the
Tournament than Cynagua. The Sunday (Saturday/Monday for May
Coronet) after has a little more time (if the RMIC has not already
Cyn/Mists War has loads of time. West/AnTir war has loads of time.
Collegia/A&S Tourneys have loads of time. Ducal has loads of time.
The Equestrian Events have loads of time. Coronations/Investitures
have loads of time on Sunday and may have time on Saturday depending
on the wishes of the Royalty. Even 12th Night has potential
depending on site space and site restrictions - what a potentially
cool Guild demo.
If your heart is set on Saturday at Crown, consider unusual times.
There is usually space that can be had prior to Invocation. There is
usually time/space after court. You will probably need torches.
On Saturdays in particular, have a realistic guess of how much time
you need. .5-1 hour is much easier to schedule than 2-4 hours. Be
prepared to start on time. This means having fighters inspected and
and maybe even warm at you start time. You want to give the fighters
15 minutes to warm up - remember to include that in your time
I know a lot of this seems picky, but a little prior planning will
help ensure a good experience on the day of your prize. There are at
least 22-25 Principality and Kingdom Level events every year in
central Kingdom. With a little bit of communication and flexibility,
scheduling a prize shouldn't be hard.
