From The Page (April, 1987):
Peoples of the Mists and Cynagua, to Arms! Your Prince, while trying to offer sage and humble council to His Royal Sibling during this last Cynaguan Investiture, was most ungratefully spurned by this selfsame lord before Our Most Beloved Majesties. Horrors!! Can we allow such an affront to go unrepented? Will we allow our neighboring cousins to so brazenly offend our colors? Will you let this perfectly good excuse for field negotiations go unabused? Of course not. When your noble lord seeks satisfactory apology from His Highness for this grievous treatment, by crumb, you'll be there.
The Mists-Cynagua War will be fought April 24-25 at the Folsom Lake Recreation Area, Granite Bay. The site opens Friday, at 3 p.m. and closes at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Enter the park at the kiosk and get a war card from the constable on duty to put in your car, or the rangers will charge you $4 a day. The site fee is $3 per person for the weekend. From the kiosk, proceed to the second stop sign and turn right into our area.
The Saturday and Sunday schedules will be run on real time. The marshals have promised to run the scenarios as scheduled. The schedule ... (omitted0.
When you enter the site you will get a copy of the war rules, and must prove you understand them when inspected. We will use West Kingdom War and Archery rules with a few exceptions. Archer's metal armor will be considered arrow proof the same way heavy armor is. Tankards for the bar room brawl may only be leather, aluminum, or tin, with glass or plastic bottoms disallowed. There may be other changes as well.
The site is wet to the high water line, and boasts good parking next to flush privies. You may use any stove, barbeque or basier you wish to bring, but open fires are not allowed. Please bring heavy plastic trash cans or use the cans provided. If the cans are full, remove your own garbage from the site. There is a deli and a grocery nearby.
The park is open to mundanes, and if the lake is high and the weather hot, it may get a bit crowded. If the park fills, the gates will close between noon and 3 p.m. Between midnight at 6 a.m. the gates will be locked with the usual combinaton, 1066.
