Crown Tourney, hmmm.  Let's see...

Comfortable chair, something to drink & eat (oranges, nuts, pickles,
cheese, etc. are all nice, easy tourney snacks) while watching tourney...
maybe some lunch if you'd rather have sandwiches than snacky stuff... 
Cloth to hide your cooler and other modern junk.  Sunscreen!!!  Even when
it's chilly, there's still a danger of sun or windburn.

For feast, drinking vessel (mug or goblet), bowl (hint!  The smaller the
bowl, the less soup you get, so if you don't really care much about having
the soup, bring a small bowl!  You can almost always get a second helping
of the soup if you like it, but it's heck to get rid of if you didn't eat
it...), plate, napkin, fork, spoon, SHARP KNIFE!!!  Many times you may need
to cut the meat brought for the whole table.  A steak or carving knife is
really, really handy in your feast gear, when presented with a whole
chicken or a large roast.

Tablecloth, candlesticks and candles are optional, since other people at
your table will probably have them, but if you've got them, bring them.

Any other ideas???
