Golden Gate Park,
San Francisco, CA
From The Page (June, 1995):
Debardchery! Cloondara welcomes all to our annual Debardchery Tourney! The site is the Archery Field in Golden Gate Park in Sand Francisco. The site opens at 9am. At 11am, we will hold an Archer's Auction wherein the populace may bid on their favorite archer whose winning score will win a prize for his/her highest bidder. The IKAC and IKCAC prize competitions begin at 11:30am. Crossbows are not allowed on the field. Other amusements and competitions will include the annual bardic competitions, best period dish, and Silver-Tongued Devil. There will also be a Fish- Fling (points for style) and a Loaf-Lob contest (accuracy). Other competitions will be announced. We will have activities for children.
The two Bardic prize competitions will be one for Original Eulogies for persons historical or SCA, dead or not (extra points if they are currently active SCA members). The second will be for Epitaphs, see Eulogies above. We welcome anyone to perform even if you do not wish to participate in the competitions.
We will have a potluck picnic. Please bring a dish based on your mundane last name as follows: A-E: side dish or salad, F-N: main dish, 0-Z: desserts. If you have a sunshade to share, please contact the autocrat. The site can be windy and cool; we suggest you bring additional layers for warmth.
Site Fee: $5.00. Children under 16 free.
Autocrat: Matthew Grey (contact info omitted)
