From The Page (August, 1991):

Purgatorio Coronation will be held at the Plumas Co. Fairgrounds (NOT the college!) in Quincy, CA. Quincy is a quaint town with many dinning and shopping opportunities for those who arrive early. Those of you who have been to Quincy before for either Cynaguan Coronet or Purgatorio are aware of how pretty this area is. The fairgrounds are in the eastern part of town. Parking may be a little tight; please keep this in mind and carpool if possible. The site will open at 1 P.M. firm on Friday and will close at 5 P.M. Sunday.

The site is a grassy lawn and has some hot showers. Weather in the area can be hot (9O°F) during the day but can drop into the 50's at night. Sunscreen and capes are advised. There will be some other activities going on at the fairgroundson Sat. (some kind of beef sale and a dinner/dance at night) but they should not interfere. There are stores, restaurants, and motels nearby.

ACTIVITIES: ARTS -- is easy -- It's the paperwork on all that wonderful Tourney Furniture that graces our campsites. I know there is some fantastic tourney furniture out there. Now is the time to draw up some good plans, try to find some documentation (if possible) and share your talent with the rest of the Kingdom. (P .S. I'd love to publish an article on Tourney-ware in the next A & S publication)--Siranna of Hawthorn Hall.
