The Thirteenth Year

All Hallow's Eve Tournament and Revel -- Province of the Mists
October 29, 1978 (AS XIII)

From The Page (October, 1978):

Annual Tournament will be held at the Airplane field in Tilden Park, Berkeley, Calif on October 29. During the tourney, there will be a competition for Champion of Arms of the Mists. And at the subsequent Halloween Revel at the Student Union at Mills College will be a competition for Champion of Arts. Also a costume contest for costumes from any space/time continuum, pre-1650 or no. For further information, communicate with Michaela de Neuville (phone omitted).

(Inaccuracies, if any, are to be blamed on the random friend who answered the phone and took down these scrawled notes from which we're typing this. But we won't reveal his identity.)

From The Page (January, 1979):

Mists' All Hallow's Eve Tournament and Revel and annual tournament was held on a fair, cold Sunday at the Airplane Field in Tilden Park, Berkeley, CA. Many fighters were there to compete for the title and position of Champion of Arms of the Province. The successful contender was His Highness, Sir Steven MacEanruig.

During the afternoon Lord Raoul the Urbane and his group of recorder players entertained. In the evening a revel was held at Helmsgaard. A Champion of Arts contest was won by Lady Deporodh of Rannoch with a Scottish song. She was presented with a jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and her choice of thou. She showed littel inventiveness in her choice, though -- she chose that same man that she married and lives with. (Perhaps she likes him?) The costume contest was won while our reporter was looking the other way, so we can't reveal the winner.
