The Twentieth Year

Samhain -- Cloondara

November 2, 1985 (AS XX)

From The Page (October, 1985):

Unto all good gentles of this Kingdom of the West, the Shire of Cloondara and their Eastern visitors send greetings and a final invitation.

After a year of living in the great and glorious West (where it all began), Seosamh O Choda has come to the conclusion that Westerners certainly know how to wage war, but they don't know how to party. Thus he will prepare a feast on the grand scale of his Eastern home and show us how it's done.

Are we going to let him leave this land with that attitude? Anyone out there who thinks they know a thing or two about enjoying good food, drink, music and dancing, please join us at our Samhain feast. Celebrate wtih us who we are, and the turning of the year. Feast upon chicken, pork pies, and lobster in cream sauce. Marvel at the skill of jugglers and belly dancers, be wafted away upon the lyrical sounds of pipe and dulcimer, and perhaps bea bishop or pawn in a living chess game. A good time is sure to be had by all.

There are two ways to be part of this party: "on-board" (feasting), or "off-board" (bring your own). The on-board price is $8.50, off-board is $3.50. Off-boarders will be seated at reserved tables in the great hall, so they can enjoy the entertainment too.

Bring your candles or lamps, daggers, and goblets. All other feast gear will be provided by the site. There is a full on-site bar with excellent discounts for S.C.A. people, and they ask that we bring non alcohol from outside. There is plenty of free parking on-site. Please send your reservations to Collach O Choda (contact info omitted).

Reservations must include a check and must be in Collach's hot little hands by Wednesday, October 30. The autocrat regrets that due to the fact that we're charging so little for so much, there can be no discounts given.

Information, crash space, etc. may be obtained by calling Collach at (phone omitted) until 10 p.m. Come visit scenic Cloondara, the shire that knows how.
