The Twenty-eighth Year

Arts and Sciences Tournament

July 24-25, 1993 (AS XXVIII)

Site: Lake Concow, Concow, CA

From The Page (June, 1993):

It's arts and sciences tourney time again. If you are a "regular" you already know this is absolutely one of the best events of the year. No courts, no lists, no meetings; just one whole weekend of camping, dancing, fighting, bird watching, basket making, belly dancing, body painting (Pict style), hair braiding, pottery making, bardic stuff, bla, bla, bla, etc .... The list of things to do and classes available is already incredible and we aren't finished yet.

The good people of Rivenoak have found a wonderful new site in the mountains above Oroville. A private campground, elevation about 2000 feet, with a small lake for fishing. The weather is expected to be warm but not unbearable and the whole site is shaded by tall pine trees. Yes, this is the same site that is being used for Cynagua Investiture the preceding weekend. For a small fee campsites can be left set up during the intervening week. Isn't that a great idea. For more information, contact the autocrat.

From The Page (July, 1993):

It's arts and sciences tourney time again. Absolutely one of the best events of the year and you don't want to miss it. No court, no boring meetings, no sweaty fighters in the eric because there ain't no eric. (Except for the one teaching calligraphy.) It's going to be a great weekend for the whole family. Camping out in the tall pines, belly dancing, boffers, bardic stuff, dancing, fighting, feasting, singing, sewing, pottery making, and just hanging out with your friends. Set your own schedule and keep your own pace. The only hard thing you'll have to decide is what not to do.

If you're planning your first trip to A&S you'll find lots of hands on classes designed so you can actually start/work on/finish your own project. Many of the classes charge small fees to help defray the cost of materials so check the class listing for what to bring and cost.

The page school will be joining us again for their traditional round of classes and boffer tourney.

The new site is in the mountains above Oroville. A private campground, eleva- tion about 2,000. feet, a small lake for fishing (permits required, sorry no swimming). This is rustic camping, the on site water is potable but there are no showers. The weather is expected to be warm but not unbearable and the whole site is shaded by tall pine trees. Yes, this is the same site that is being used for Cynagua Investiture the preceding weekend.

The site opens at noon of Friday. The site fees are $6 for adults, and $2 for children under 14. For a small fee ($2.50 a night) empty campsites can be left set up during the intervening week. Occupied campsites will cost $5 per car/day plus a 50 cent per person, per day privy tax. Call the autocrat if you are interested in leaving your campsite set up. Summer fire rules and kingdom fire laws will be strictly enforced so bring your extra buckets and fire extinguishers. Separating and recycling your trash is required so please bring extra trash bags.
