From The Page (November, 1994):
Greetings One and All from those lands kissed by the Sun. As the winds and rains once again cross our lands from the depths of Argonia, attention once again turns to preparations for Estrella War.
This year the Armies and Artisans of Atenveldt shall meet their brothers from the Outlands upon the fields of Estrella. The noble Armies of Caid shall be attending to balance the sides as the Outlands had done the previous year. We invite the Knowne Worlde to attend and enjoy six days of Fighting, Arts, Camaraderie, Revelry, and of course-Shopping!
This year we have expanded the site with a larger and more accessible Merchants Row (set in a new portion of the Park, east of the Fighting Field). To the south of Merchants Row (in the tree grove) we have reserved a large space for "Enchanted Ground". Everyone who wishes to take part in this area is cordially invited to attend.
With the moving of Merchants Row to a more spacious area, we now have a great deal more camping space. The eastern camping area of the park will be "Sleepy Hollow" for all you early risers. The rest of the Park is there for your enjoyment as normal. The park has improved the shoulders of the road to allow "head in" parking instead of parallel, Huzzah! This should relieve a great deal of the parking headaches.
As usual, weather is unpredictable in the Great Southern Desert. Be prepared for anything from hot days, to cold nights, to rain and wind. The autocrats take no responsibility for the weather. Please direct complaints to a "Higher Authority" .
All flames must be enclosed in a container, fire-pits, lanterns, enclosed torches are fine-open candles, unscreened tiki torches, are not. Please bring a fire extinguisher for each tent by order of the City of Goodyear Fire Marshal. All minors not accompanied by their parent must have a NOTARIZED Minor's Waiver and Medical Waiver (your Seneschal should have these).
Once again, there are NO accommodations for horses. Please don't bring them. That's the parks ruling, not ours-they will not be allowed into the park.
Until we meet & clasp hands in friendship, may your herds multiply, & your enemies run before your approach.
Fees: Site Fee,$30.00 for Wednesday through Monday, $25.00 for Friday through Monday, $15.00 for one day. There is a $5.00 discount with proof of membership.
Merchant Fees: In addition to the site fee: $55.00 single space, $90.00 double.
