The Twenty-fourth Year

Pitchfork War -- Teufelberg/St. Katherine

February 10, 1990 (AS XXIV)

From The Page (January, 1990):

On Saturday Join the forces of Teufelberg as they regain what is rightfully theirs from the force of St. Kate's. The war takes place in North Gate, Briones Park starting about 11 am.

At Teufelberg Anniversary Tourney & Revel, an infiltrater from St. Katherine's stole the seneschal's new scepter, THE PITCHFORK. We are determined to regain it; therefore we are going to War! We ask to be joined by all people who wish to fight on the side of honor, virtue, & the principle that guests shouldn't steal the forks!

We'll have many battles with whatever materials we can find, until dark or too tired. We may have one battle using native forces only. The rest of the battles can be joined by mercenaries or anyone who just wants the fun of a Winter war. It'll be good preparation for Estrella, happening the next weekend.

The site is not reservable, so come early. Pets on a leash are welcome, but no merchanting or archery is allowed. Often water isn't available, so bring your own. The Parks Service may have a troll booth collecting a $2-4 VEHICLE ENTRY FEE. There'll be no other fees for the war, but we'll pass the hat for donations.

A revel is in the planning stages & will probably be held on St. Kate's grounds. since the war is on Teufelberg land. Revel site fee will depend on the acquisition of a site.

From The Page (February, 1990):

(Note: The Page Copy is nearly identical up to the last couple of paragraphs above before the DIRECTIONS, which are combined in the February issue of The Page:)

A revel will be at the Boy Scout Hut in LeFayette, a hall overlooking the Diablo Valley. Maps to the revel will be available at the war. St. Katherines' will be providing dessert, including Devil s Food Cake, of course. Teufelberg will be providing punch & a brewed beverege. The site is discretely 'damp'. We'll have dancing & general revelry at 6 pm. Clean-up starts at 10:30 so we can vacate the hall by 11. A SITE FEE of $1 will be collected at the door.
