From The Page (November, 1977):
The College of St. David (UC Santa Cruz) invites you to its Third Annual Pot Luck Feast and Revel on Saturday, November 19, at the Cowell Fireside Lounge on the campus of the University of California at Santa Cruz. The Revel will begin at 5:00 PM; feasting commences at 6:00.
A COOKING CONTEST for "Dishes Fit For a King" (this could be anything prepared and served regally) will be judged immediately prior to dinner. Among the evening's festivities will be music, dancing, and many diverse games and contests, such as Blind Man's Joust and Hip Throwing. The Revel will end with a Bardic Circle (including a magic and sleight-of-hand competition), and a story-telling contest including punny stories, adventure stories, and scary stories.
Accomodations will be available for all who wish to stay the night, and activities will be planned for Sunday. For more information, or for accomodations Friday or Saturday night, get in touch with the Senescal, Lady Loanna de Lisane (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.
