Golden Gate Park,
San Francisco, CA
From The Page (June, 1998):
The site is the Archery Field in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The site opens at 9:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m., 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 highest bidder. The IKAC and IKCAC prize competitions begin at 11:30 a.m.; crossbows are not allowed on the field.
Cloondara will once again offer the Caper Toss competition (requiring use of provided mitten armor gauntlets). Other amusements will include the annual prize bardic competitions and best period dish. There will also be a Fish-Fling (points for style) and a Loaf-Lob (accuracy) contest. We will, hopefully, have a return of the Flying Phoenix of Fate (distance). Other competitions will be amiounced.
The bardic prize competition will be for stories or songs "IN PRAISE OF SHEEP." Epic sheep stories welcome ... extra points for puns and double-entendres. 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, O-Z = desserts. Please bring sunshades to share. The site can be windy and cool; we suggest you bring additional layers for warmth.
Autocrat: Kath Dudek (contact info omitted).
Site fee will be $5.00; children under 16 free.
