Held at the Hagman Equestrian Center, Chatsworth, CA. Kerisa of Silverwolf was the autocrat. The events were Jousting at the Quintain, Tilting at Rings, Beheading the Saracen, Archery on Horseback, a King’s Cup Race, and a Favor Race. There was a Hay Ride followed by a revel, and a barbecue. Ten people showed up. Erekose beat Renfield in Titling at Rings. In the beginner’s division Lady Lorraine d’Alsace beat out Elisabeth. The Favor Race, in which the rider had to retrieve a favor while riding by it at a fast trot, was won by Renfield with Lady Cliveden d’Cheiux taking second. In the Prince’s Cup race, the winner of the beginner’s division was Lady Lorraine with Elizabeth in 2nd. Lord Renfield won the advanced division and Cliveden came in 2nd. Renfield and Erekose tried successfully to decapitate some wig heads. Viscountess Bevin Fraser of Sterling stopped and did the shagging for the ring-tilting and favor race. The hay ride was cancelled, and everyone adjourned to the home of Kerissa of Silverwolf for the potluck revel.
