Actually the real plan is Coronation 1st weekend in March or 1st weekend 
in April followed by a Crown the fist weekend in May.  Fall Coronation is 
sometime in Sept (usually the 3rd weekend or so) or the first weekend in 
Oct. followed by a Crown the first weekend in Nov.

What skewed it this time was actually Gulf Wars.   Cuan and Brigit 
desired to attend as Monarchs, since I had Pennsic and Toys of Tots Clash 
(Sea Wars) in my reign, that was no problem.  We therefore scheduled 
Coroanation for the alternate date of the first weekend in April.  All 
was well and good until someone pointed out that that was the first  
weekend after the nth full moon of the yeari, etc. etc.  meaning it was 
Easter.  Sooo, it got pushed back to the 20th.
