Equestrian & Wedding Event -- Golden Rivers

September 19, 1987 (AS XXII)

From The Page (August, 1987):

Lady Aehlswyth of Coventry and Lord Etienne Xavier Bondurant du Blacquemoor invite you to share in the celebration of their marriage Saturday, September 19 at 11am with a buffet reception and tournament ot follow. After the end of the day, a major revel will be held in honor of the tournament champions and the newlyweds at (address omitted) in Rio Linda. The revel is scheduled to start at 7pm.

Join us in the sylvan seclusion of the Lakehills Equestrian Center, (address omitted), Loomis, amid the tall trees (copious shade) with ample parking, tiered seating on the arena (bleachers built into the hillside), and plenty of room for day pavilions overlooking the field and in the picnic area (privies are conveniently near). The site is 10 minutes from Folsom Lakes' Granite Bay, site of the recent Mists/Cynagua War.

The usual tourney events will have some unusual twists: find yourself surrounded by saracens, save the colors by riding through narrow castle walls, even tilting will have new challenges. The site is perfect for mounted archery and if time permits, a special Mystery Event never before done. As always, we will have awards for best costumes in rider, horse, and combination categories.

Time for it all depends on volunteers to help with scorekeeping, timing, and groundcrew. Unlimited iced beverages will be available for all volunteers.

Copper spoon will host a cooking competition for any dessert consisting of foods also used to feed horses (carrots, whole grains, wheat, oats, apples, etc.). Extra credit given for entries in the form of a horse.

Provincial Arts and Sciences will have a special contest during the tournament for any project relating to horses (art work, leather, woodwork, bardings, etc), flat or 3-dimensional, miniature or full size.

Registration and a rider's meeting will be at 9am (real time). Morning riding practice (open to all): $5. Tournament horse rental $15. Tournament entry fee: $5. Those with their own mounts only pay the entry fee. Any donations from appreciative spectators will be greatly appreciated.

All riders over 200 lbs must contact the autocrat by September 9. Due to the requirements of the stable we regret that we cannot accomodate riders over 240 lbs, and that the rental fee must be paid in advance. Entry fees may be paid on the site. There is no site fee.

The groom wishes to have a special poetry reading contest, to be judged on the best presentation, for poems on being newly married. Further details will be furnished at registration, but we will mail them in advance on request.

Please note that there is limited space for chairs at ringside at the arena, so bring your cushions to soften the bleachers. Your chairs will be a definite plus in the picnic area. For further information and horse reservations contact Lady Ahelswyth or Lord Etienne, (contact info omitted). A mechanical secretary will take your name and address/message if the autocrats are not in.

For information regarding Copper Sppon and Provincial Arts and Sciences contact Lady Holly Alina De Montague (contact info omitted).
