From The Page (July, 1996):

How serious are you about recreating the middle ages? The middle ages were about Knights on Horseback battling with sword and lance. William Marshal did most of his tourneying on a horse^ how about you? Well here is your chance. The College of Equestrian Arts is sponsoring a William Marshal Equestrian Tourney. On Saturday there will be a William Marshal style tourney with teams of 5 to 10. To enter your team, your team must have at least one rider to represent you on Sunday for the equestrian portion of the tourney. The team may have multiple riders.

Saturday evening there will be a feast with dancing and entertainment. Feast reservations must be made in advance no later than 28 July. Feast tickets are $10 per person.

Sunday morning rider authorizations will be conducted for new riders^ followed by the equestrian portion of the tournament. The scores for both tournaments will be combined to determine the overall victor. Prizes will be awarded.

Stables are available for those wishing to bring your own horses. Stables will cost $12 per night and should be reserved in advance with the autocrat. Rental horses will be available on Sunday only at a cost of $60 per horse for the day. Rental horses may be shared between a maximum of three people.

The site fee is $8 per person. The site is flat, grassy , and has showers.

Autocrat: Christian du Glaive (contact info omitted).
