The Twenty-ninth Year

Beltane Coronation

April 29-30, 1995 (AS XXIX)

Rancho Seco Park,
Herald, CA

From The Page (March, 1995):

Beltane Coronation again will be held at Rancho Seco Park in the same areas we had last year. There is a lake with swimming area immediately adjacent to our camping areas (parents please note), a small concession stand, showers (cold) and flush privies.

The site will not open until noon! Please plan your trip accordingly.

Site fee: $6.00 per person, $4.00 for children ages 3-12 (children 2 and under are free). Merchants should 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 SMUD (phone) to reserve space in advance.

All animals must be leashed and attended or else confined at all times. Please remember that we will be sharing this site with mundanes and 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 lakebed 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 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 SCA lock will be in place the rest of the time.
