From The Page (September, 1986):

The Autumn Coronet for Cynagua will be on November 1 and 2 in the beautiful environs of Canale. The site will be approximately 30 miles east of Modesto with easy access and will sport such anachronistic amenities as showers and flush toilets. More details will be forthcoming. Parents take note, the site is adjacent to water.

The arts competitions for Coronet will be banners, cold/warm feed your fighter, chain mail jewelry, and a song on the subject of chivalry. For January Investiture the contests will be artwork (not scrolls), weaving (a minimum 3 by 3 sample), poetry (period style, with documentation), and open (something new learned this year). If you wish to sponsor any other contests please contact the autocrats, Lorenzo di Nebbia Argentea (contact info omitted) or Felitia Serena (contact info omitted).

The autocrats would like to encourage merchants, entertainers, performers, bards, poets, singers, dancers, and artists to contact them. This should be an eventful occasion with many brave lords vieing to grace the garland by placing it on the brow of the fairest lady in the principality.

Plan ahead and polish your kettles. There will be a communal pot luck feast on Saturday evening. Expect some pleasant surprises from Canale's renowned chefs.

From The Page (October, 1986):

Those of you who attended last year's Autumn Coronet in Cynagua will remember the beautiful site at Turlock Lake State Park, compete with flush privies and showers. An added benefit this year -- flying pests will be sprayed for in advance of the event. So, come one, come all November 1 and 2 and play in our greenry. Keep in mind that there is a swift river nearby.

Much should be happening. Planned are competitions for a song with the theme of chivalry, banners, chain mail jewelry and the Copper Spoon contest is feed a fighter. Also the competition for the Bard of Cynagua will take place at Coronet. There will be workshops for female fighters and for needlework. The lists for the Lord Defender of Cynagua will be on Sunday, as will a Princess' Tea hosted by Princess Fiona. It is possible that there will be archery. There will be an auction and a communcal potluck is planned.

The site will open at noon on Friday, October 31. Space on the eric will be limited, but adjacent areas are excellent. (No ground fires are allowed, nor is wood collection. Firewood may be purchased from the rangers.)

There will be a traditional bardic circle in the evening. As directed by Their Majesties and Their Highnesses, drunkeness and unruly behavior or serving of alcohol to minors will be cause for ejection from the site.

Any questions may be directed to the autocrats, Lorenzo di Nebia Argenta (contact info omitted) or Felitia Serena (contact info omitted).
