From The Page (October, 1983):
Once again, equestrians are invited to dazzle the Knowne World with feats of skill, speed, daring, and comic relief!
On October 22, 1983, at 9 am, the largest assembly of competitors in the Kingdom of the West will convene at Beach Lake Stables in Freeport just south of Sacramento.
The usual competitions will be run concurrently in two separate arenas to facilitate handling the large number of riders we expect. In addition, there will be a deluxe Cross Country Quest. At the end of the day, as a special treat, you will be able to try your hand at pattern calling and drill team work. There will be novice and advanced divisions for all competitions. Entry fees will be $5 for the day. Ribbons will be awarded through fourth place in individual events. Prizes will be awarded to high point winners for the day to third place.
The facilities at Beach Lake Stables include a full grassy picnic ground, barbecue pits, tables, and running water.
Stabling at the site's barn the previous night will be available by reservation with the autocrats. Horse owners may camp at the site overnight. Sleeping space arrangements can be made for others. We particularly encourage spectators to come enjoy the panoply. You will be well entertained and bleachers are at ringside for comfortable viewing.
Arrangements are being made to have rental horses available at a reasonable price. Please call ahead to arrange for yours with the autocrats. We will also be happy to coordinate travel arrangements for private horses, so if you have transportation problems or a trailer only partly occupied, please call us!
For further information, call the autocrats:
Aehlswyth of Coventry (contact info omitted).
Greylin Yseult d'Cilla (contact info omitted).
Gwendwyn the Silent (contact info omitted).
If you would like to be on our mailing list, please give us a call. We are sending out fliers to keep you abreast of developments. There will only be one more PAGE edition before the event, so the myriad of details will come from our mailings. Also, if you would like to be a ring steward, please call.
