From The Page (September, 1989):

Collegium Occidentalis will be holding its next session September 30 and October 1 at the College of SI. Cassian of Imola (Sacramento State University). Cost of this event is $3 for the weekend. There will be a potluck revel Saturday night; please bring a dish to feed six people. Rueben ben Joseph has graciously allowed his arm to be twisted and will lead the dancing that night.

Although we are almost positive that the event will take place in St. Cassians hallowed halls, there is also a slight possibility that we may be holding this session at Re-Ed West. The site will be confirmed by Purgatorio and updated information should appear in your October Page, which our efficient, wonderful chronicler has been mailing early enough for most of us to use before the first of that month.
