The Twenty-eighth Year

Beltane Coronation

April 30-May 1, 1994 (AS XXVIII-XXIX)

Site: Rancho Seco Park,
Herald, CA

From The Page (March, 1994):

Beltane Coronation will be held at Rancho Seco Park. We have more of the grass area available this year. There is a lake with swimming area (parents please note), small concession stand, showers (cold) and flush privies.

Site fee is $5 per person, $3 for children 3-12, children under 2 are free. Merchants must contact the Merchant liaison for merchant space and for information on merchant fees. There will be R.V. spaces available by reservation only. Please call the park office at S.M.U.D. (phone), to reserve space in advance.

All persons arriving prior to noon on Friday will be given a number. The numbers will be placed in a hat and will be drawn at noon to establish the order of choosing campsites.

All animals must be leashed and attended or else confined at all times. We will be sharing this site with mundanes, although not as many as last time; please take reasonable precautions regarding valuables, etc.

The park requests that for your personal safety you use the designated swimming area only as the remainder of the lake bed is not kept free of debris.

All fires (firepits or hibachis, etc.) must be eighteen inches off the ground. No groundfires allowed. In addition, vehicles will not be allowed onto the camping areas, so please bring handcarts if you have them.

Parking near the camping area is limited. Additional parking is available approximately a quarter of a mile away by the administration offices. Please plan to unload your vehicles and move them to the overnight parking at the earliest possible time to ensure unloading space for people arriving after you. The park gate closes at 7 p.m. daily. We will have the gate open late on Friday night. The usual S.C.A. lock will be in place the rest of the time.

Contests: Arts; theatrical performance (pre-1560) and drawing (any period style); Sciences; cosmetics and jewelry; Arachne's Web; bobbin lace; Wooden Spoon; savory coffins; Pied d'Argent; Candle Light Bransle.
