Fall Crown List – 10 November 2018

Crown List is paired with Coronation as the events that, more than any other, embody the Dream. Hope in the Crown, Honor on the list field, and the camaraderie that we cherish all unfold at these hallowed events. In what must have been the coldest Crown List in our years in Meridies, we saw warm hearts, smiling faces, and togetherness. Crown List is a place of honor, humility, faith, and…

Crown Lyst – 27 May 2018

Wow, where to begin? Crown list is always a tournament like no other, and this one proved to break the mold.

The A&S entries, as always, are breathtaking, with out-of-Kingdom compliments left and right for the skills of our artists. Arts/Crown hatched as a wild idea that has been supremely…
