From The Page (May, 1983):

Come one, come all, to the 1298th Anniversary Tourney and Feast. HellyanDrac the Blind and the Barony of Allyshia are hostinga tourney and feast in commemoration of the Picts' victory over the Northumbrian army at the Battle of Heron's Pool, 20 May 685. In celebration, we are having a nine-course dinner, contests for javelin use, body looting, the best poem or song in praise of the Picts, and also an award for the person best able to stay within persona during the tourney. There will be a Bardic circle -- come ready with instruments and voices. Lots of fighting, melees, perhaps night boffers, and a Quest in the woods (you'll need your wits and skill!). And yes! once again, the Pictish stag has been sighted in our forests -- bring your bows and blunts for a stag hunt. Multi-course feast with entertainment will be Saturday evening, tickets are $6. We must receive requests for tickets by the 15th of May. The tourney is Friday 20 May from 6 pm until Sunday 22 May at dusk, at Freshwater Elementary School, Eureka CA. (directions omitted).

There'll be a $1 site fee per body. For more information and tickets, contact HellyanDrac the Blind (contact info omitted). It's OK to call after 11 pm (it's cheaper). Hoping to see you there -- come and help us celebrate.
