Held at Lakeside School, Seattle, WA. Over 100 students attended. Friday Night, January 2, was crowned by a potluck dinner and symposium in the Refectory, at which Michael the Black recounted some fascinating lore about the medieval fair at Champagne, Edward of Stonehaven presented a paper on brewing, and Duke Paul of Bellatrix discussed the duties of nobility. Saturday the instructors and students returned to their classes and that evening everyone adjourned to the Twelfth Night Coronation and Revel. Sunday morning they again returned for more classes.

Disclaimer: This history may have errors in it, as much of the detail is “remembered” history, or as one of the cover pages of the original type-written manuscript states “The material within is derived from the information printed in The Crown Prints and in The Page, and from the memories of the participants.” The original document was typed on onion-skin paper, with hand-written notes (often in the margins). All attempts have been made to reconcile the notes with the original document.
Annotations, when they are added, are from The Annotated History of the West, Volume 1, which is the same text as Master Wilhelm's mentioned above, with commentary from members of the SCA who were active at the time of the event, and are added to help clarify questions and expand on what happened and why.
