Modesto Centre Plaza and Doubletree Hotel,
From The Page (November, 1998):
On behalf of Their Majesties and Their Royal Highnesses, House Justice welcomes you to Twelfth Night Coronation at the Modesto Centre Plaza and Doubletree Hotel. The site opens at 10:30 a.m. and closes at 11:00 p.m. This is a DRY site. Site tokens will be given out when you check in at the door and will be required for re-entry if you leave the Convention Center (even if you just go into the hotel). Candles in enclosed holders are permitted on the tables in the feast hall.
Tickets: $10 until Thanksgiving, $12 from Thanksgiving to the event, and $15 at the door; half price for children 2-12; under 2 is free. Tickets can be purchased from the autocrat at several events or by mail. Please send your ticket requests to the autocrat, with a check made out to "SCA, Inc.—Kingdom of the West" and a SASE with sufficient postage. Ticket rates will be based on the postmark. Requests with no SASE will cause the tickets to be held at the door, and you will have to wait in line for them. Requests without proper payment will not be processed.
