El Cerrito, CA
From The Page (November, 1996):
Come all good gentles to the annual Beaconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast. Hunt a boar or be a boar. Packs of hounds (armored) and dogs (unarmored) are also needed. Reports are that the skunk population is on the rise this year (all participants be on the lookout lest you get "skunked"). We will have a room for games (with fireplace!). The populace is encouraged to bring their games to while away the hours of the hunt (if you're not hunting!). After the hunt enjoy a medieval feast in two removes in our rustic lodge. Tickets are limited, so order now. Mail orders must be received by December 2, 1996. All orders after that will be held at the door. The hunt begins at 10am. No alcohol is permitted on site. This event will be held rain or shine.
Tickets: Feast and Hunt: adult $15 and children $8; Feast only; adult $13 and children $7; Hunt only; adult $5 and children $2. Send ticket orders to the autocrat and make checks payable to "SCA Inc. - Shire of Beaconsgate." Please include a SASE if you would like your tickets mailed to you.
