The Twenty-seventh Year

Arts and Sciences Tourney / Page School Boffer Tourney -- Kingdom of the West

July 25-26, 1992 (AS XXVII)

From The Page (June, 1992):

Once again we are inviting the populace to escape the heat of summer and enjoy a week-end of fun, creativity, dancing and relaxation at beautiful Two Rocks Coast Guard Station in Petaluma. Pitch your pavilion under a tree, or on a grassy slope by the lake (no swimming, but lots of ducks to feed) and relax in the cool ocean breezes.

The site opens at 2 P.M on Friday and closes at 6 P.M. on Sunday. Classes begin at 9 A.M. on Saturday and run until 6 P.M., continuing on Sunday from 9:30 A.M. until 3 P.M. You can spend an entire weekend doing as much (or as little) as you want-no morning court, no competitions, and no sweaty fighters in the non-existant eric!

This is not a complete list, but here are some of the classes you can look forward to: making soap, creating period pigments, armouring, dances from the Midrealm, enamel beads, brewing cordials, needlework, feltmaking, court ettiquite, indigo dying, wooden tourney chests, belly dancing, leather arm bands, cartrige pleating, cedar clothes chest, arrow fletching, hatmaking, fighting techniques, brewing, making Marklin blunts, archery, wood craving, twisted metal forks, basketry, pottery, dances from Calontir, Saxon garb, spiral jewelry, hardinger embroidery, and more dance. Most of the classes are free, however in some, a small fee will enable you to make something you can take away with you.

Evening will feature a bardic circle and more dancing. The Page School will be holding classes on Saturday. On Sunday the Page School Boffer Tourney will be held. This year it will be a round-robin tourney.

The clothing standards to be in force for the Boffer Tourney are: All skin surfaces covered, though not necessarily padded. Gloves are required. Swords to Page School Standards. Shields edged in foam or hose. Helms need rigid eye protection and no more than 1" foam padding. Cups for all boys and chest protection for girls where appropriate. For clarification, call the Page School.

From The Page (July, 1992):

Once again you are cordially invited to attend what has become one of the West Kingdom's most enjoyable, educational, and relaxing events. Spend two fun-filled days learning, socializing, and frolicking in the cool ocean breezes of Two Rocks Coast Guard Station near Petaluma. Site fee is $5.00 per person and $2.00 for those 12 and under. This is a military base, so remember to bring your drivers license and proof of insurance. If you do not have proof of insurance, ride with someone who does, or plan to park outside the base and hitch a ride in with someone-there will be no exceptions. Obey all posted speed limits, especially those in the family areas. There are no pets (cats too) allowed and no swimming in the pond, but fishing and feeding the ducks is fine. This is an especially lovely site and the least we can do is to follow the rules. Classes start at 9:00 A.M. on Saturday and at 9:30 on Sunday, we should try to be completely off the site by 5:30 on Sunday. Please watch for signs and park in SCA designated areas only.
