From The Page (November, 1986):
In tumultuous celebration of Twelfth Night, The Kingdom of the West invites its populace to journey forth this third day of January, to the Province of Golden Rivers, and there to join Their Majesties and Highnesses in festival, court and revelry. This year's Twelfth Night will be held at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn (north of Sacramento on Hwy 80). The halls will open at 10 a.m. and close ad midnight.
Gold Country Fairgrounds has generously allowed for the use of not one, but three halls for Twelfth Night. Both drinkables and candles are permitted. The weather will be chilly, and with a little luck (for those of sentimental heart) the ground may have a light powdering of snow. All highways east to Auburn will be open, and you need not fear the mud for asphalt walkways lead between all buildings. Parking will be adequate, but tight, so please cooperate with the constables on site. Road condition phone numbers go out with your tickets.
Tis a gentle reminder that ticket prices leap from $6 each to $7 on November 15. If you wish to catch one before the price jumps, send your check made out to "S.C.A. Inc. 12th Night Fund", and a SASE to (info omitted). Even though $7 each is still but a small amount to pay for a ticket to Twelfth Night, why spend a dollar more each? Send for your tickets early (your mouney pouches will thank you). For questions about tickets, call Aislinn Breemore (contact info omitted).
A wonderous dinner banquet of multiple removes and unparalleled delights will be served to between 75 and 100 participants only. Tickets for this culinary conquest will be available at Cynaguan Coronet Tourney and Mists Investiture, and will surely go fast. Those bringing dinner have a choice of two dining areas, one for general use and one in the Tudor theme. You are also welcome to bring decorations of all kinds to place on the tables.
If you are royalty beyond the borders of the West, please contact Carol of Bellatrix (phone) so that tickets may be arranged for you. All royalty within the Kingdom will receive tickets from the autocrat.
Entertainment at Twelfth Night abounds. Due to its past tremendous popularity, a Casbah will open this year in its own special hall. In addition, there will be period dancing in the main room, a separate area for the Pied D'Argent competition, and a dancing bear for those who rather spectate.
The Orangeman and the Papist Pub will slake all legal thirsts (identification will have to be checked by Kingdom and mundane policy) in exchange for small contributions to the land and travel funds. And the Westermark Players promise another unequalled performance. If you wish to entertain, please contact Ava Trudine of Tregoening (phone), for further information.
Merchants are welcome to sell on site, provided they have registered with the autocrat. Those interested should contact Maelgwyn de Lyonesse (contact info omitted).
If you have any questions that need answering, or if you have something you wish to see or do, please contact the autocrat, Iseult Nic Elam (contact info omitted).
