From The Page (May, 1985):

On May 18 & 19, the armies of the West and of Caid will meet for war maneuvers at Lake San Antonio County to demonstrate their valor and prowess at arms.

Arts competitions for the weekend are: Dyeing, Bread, Jewelry. Include a written explanation of your efforts where appropriate.

The Barony will again be sponsoring the Dolphin Tavern.

Site rules are as follows: Pets must be leashed and under control. No fires on the ground. You may have a bonfire in a cut-off metal barrel which is sitting on the ground.

Setup begins Friday afternoon. The site fee is $2 per person for the entire weekend.

(directions omitted).

For further information, call or write to the autocrat, Karolyn (contact info omitted), or the site autocrat, Astrith (contact info omitted). Merchants should write or call the site autocrat to arrange reservations. Merchant fees will be the same as last year.

The Commissar of Martial Activities and her aides have returned from the site for the West-Caid War with the following report: We will be using a large battle area with only natural terrain. There will be 2 resurrection points for each side. There are ticks and rattlesnakes on the site, but there is no poison oak we could find in the battle area.

There may be changes from the schedule announced last month. A final schedule will be announced on site, and will be held to barring unforseen complications.

Some of the battles will not include archery. However, we will have archery battles set for those times, so that the archers will have a full schedule of activities. For more info: Eilis, (contact info omitted).
