From The Page (December, 1977):
This year, the Barony of Three Mountains (Portland, OR) will once again take part in Portland's Midwinter Revels (re-named Park Blocks Revels), on December 4 from noon until 4:30. Court will be held on the second floor of the YWCA building at 1111 SW 10th Avenue.
The Revels are sponsored by the Art Museum, several churches, and other civic organizations. They provide a perfect opportunity for the SCA in this area to publicize itself to the mundane world under the most favorable circumstances. Our large indoor area will have space for artisans to display their wares (after telling the Seneschal). We will have a richly decorated throne area, space for fighting demonstrations, dancing, singing, and goodies for sale.
For information, please contact Lady Julie of Rhamphorhunchus Manor at (phone ommited).

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.
