Held at the U.C. Irvine campus, Irvine, CA. in the Humanities Complex for the first two days, and in the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Alhambra, CA for the third day. There were forty-seven courses offered. Over 120 students attended. Llewellywn Llycandor was the autocrat. Saturday night there was a showing of Errol Flynn in “Robin Hood” at the student union. There was a revel Sunday night. The session was very successful and enjoyable.
"... UC Irvine wouldn't have been Isles -- it wasn't yet Gyldenholt, either, so I'm thinking it was actually Angels." -- Jared of Castlewood (from an email to Hirsch, June 18, 2004)

This is from The History of the West Kingdom, Volume 1 (the only volume produced). When reading this text, please keep in mind the following disclaimer:
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.
