From The Page (March, 1978):

Come join us in one last lion-hearted adventure of winter before the lamb of spring returns! This is in honor of our Baron and Baroness, Maelgwyn and Merewyn de Lyonesse.

The activities of the day will include: a drama workshop, puppetry for children, an auction, a dancing workshop, fighting, fencing, and a cooking contest (Tarts: any kind as long as they come under the definition of a tart -- recipe required).

The tourney will be held from 10:00 AM to approximately midnight. There will be a potluck dinner at the appropriate hour -- please be prepared with a dish. For further information and crash space, please get in touch with Gabrielle Cynara d'Angers (contact info omitted).

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.
