Archery & Arts Tourney -- Cloondara

June 9, 1990 (AS XXV)

From The Page (April, 1990):

We are hosting our annual Archery & Arts Tourney at the Archery Field in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

The Archery competitions include both IKAC & IKCAC rounds, as well as a Traditional Long Bow Division, & a division for younger archers. Unfortunately, park rules prohibit crossbows.

The Arts competitions include: best bardic work on an archery theme (extra credit for original works), costume based on a character from 'Robin Hood', Fine Arts (includes illumination) with an archery theme, Cooking (extra credit if you can work in an archery theme), & hand kissing (no archery requirement). At supplies are available for use by children & others.

Site opens at 10; competition will begin about 12. There will be a potluck lunch at 2. If you wish to participate in the potluck, please bring a dish from the following based on your mundane last name: A-H=Main course; I-R=Side dieshes & salads; S-Z=Desserts. Please supply your own bread & drinks; this is a DISCREETLY WET SITE.

If you have questions, call the AUTOCRAT, Ragnar Strongbow (phone). Questions concerning the Arts Competitions can be directed to Lady Margaret Woodrose (phone). Directions & map will be in the May issue of The Page.

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