Held in the Hockey field at Mills College, Oakland, California. Edwin Bersark was the autocrat. Richard reigned as King. Anne was not present so Diana Listmaker sat in her place as Queen. Crown lists were held. Sir Henrik of Havn defeated Caradoc ap Cador. Sir Henrik’s lady was Leanne of Maywood. Sir Henrik gave the MGC to Kerry the Rock. There was a revel afterwards.
[Anne of San Anselmo had come down with a bad case of Mononucleosis, and after she had recovered went back to the seminary and finished her education. This is why she was not present during the reign as Queen. She later showed up for some events in the West, but dropped out awhile after that. She was found in Calontir in time for an event there, on the weekend of October 8, AS XXIX (1994), and has been at least moderately active there.]

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.
