Purgatorio Coronation

August 23-24, 1986 (AS XXI)

From The Page (June, 1986):

The Barony of Allyshia is once again proudly hosting Purgatorio, August 22-24. The site is not quite decided upon yet. Details very soon. The site will definitely be beautiful, the weather mild, and the company superb. So come to Allyshia for a Purgatorio that is a little bit of heaven. Any questions, suggestions, etc. should be sent to Kallessa Panthera (contact info omitted) or Davin Alvisson (contact info omitted).

From The Page (August, 1986):

Purgatorio Crown and Coronation will be in the Barony of Allyshia on August 23 and 24. The site will open at noon on Friday. The site fee is $2.

The weather should be sunny, but not too hot. The autocrat predicts fog in the mornings and chilly evenings.

See the notice from the Seneschale to see who can fight and be fought for in the re-fight of Crown.

The Barony of Allyshia is sponsoring a most becoming bodice competition and a most intriguing codpiece competition. There will also be a hay hunt for children. The Wooden Spoon competition is for a dish made in a castle under seige; see the Wooden Spoon announcement for details. The Pied d'Argent competition will be for Hole in the Wall; see the Pied d'Argent announcement. The Arts and Sciences Championship contests to be run at Purgatorio are costume, costume accessories, brewing, crafts (ceramics).

There is room for archery at this site. Dogs must be kept on leashes. Please be very careful with fires, this is the dry season.

For further information contact the autocrats Kallessa Panthera (contact info omitted) or Davin Alvisson (contact info omitted).

At June Crown there had been an issue with the membership of the finalists, so this event was called "Crownatorio" by some. The Crown List was held Saturday, which was won by Stephen of Beckenham for Sariya al Mus'ad. They were Crowned King and Queen Sunday morning. This would have been a bit of a whirlwind for them.

You may read the letter from both the Kingdom Seneschal, and Radnor and Isabeau, about the issue noted above: Radnor Abdication Notice. This was sent to the populace either as a separate mailing or included in either the July or August issue of The Page. (I found a copy in a stack of newsletters received for use of the History site ... Hirsch)

Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
