From The Page (November, 1982):
On Saturday, November 6, at the Santa Clara Central Park Pavilion and Firepit, we offer for your amusement and enjoyment an all-day picnic revel! The site will open at 9:00 AM. We will break for dinner at 6:00 PM; and the park must be cleared by 9:00 PM.
POLITICAL VERSE CONTEST: Write a poetic piece of a political nature that you could have actually
published (probably underground) during that time (1600) and not have been permanently
FILIBUSTER CONTEST: This is basically a liar's contest in story form.
EFFIGY CONTEST: Create your favorite political figure, either real or mundane (recognizable please), a maximum of one (1) foot tall, of combustible (non-toxic, non-melting) materials for destruction at the bardic circle bonfire. The effigies will be judged on quality, difficulty, and authenticity, not on expense. (If when you are through making it, you do not wish to enter your work of art in this contest and later the bonfire, please bring it for display anyhow).
LUCRETIA BORGIA COOKING CONTEST: Mix up a scrumptuous culinary delight with an unusual ingredient (one not already in the original recipe) which will represent an eventual death to the consumer (such as uncooked rice for glass shards). Entries will be judged on quality, authenticity of the deadly ingredient, how it is masked, and how difficult it was to make. Recipes must be included with each entry, and all "deadly" ingredients must be edible: you must be willing to eat it yourself!
BOFFER BACKSTABBING MELEE
LAWN BOWLS TOURNAMENT
Then when darkness falls, the flames will rise to consume the effigies and to provide warmth for song and celebration!
