The Thirty-sixth Year

(Full moon) Madness -- Westermark

August 3-5, 2001 (AS XXXVI)

Coyote Creek County Park,
Gilroy, CA

From The Page (July, 2001):

Come join the Barony as we celebrate Madness by the light of a full moon! Howl, dance, play croquet and hit each other! Occasionally, all at once! All a true Western lunatic could possibly need: lunacy presented by experts, for experts, and lots of chances for purely metaphorical injuries!! There will be contests (physical and mental), games (physical and mental), brewing (physical and mental), singing (physical and mental), talking (probably about overused jokes in Page copy), and story telling enough for all... but watch out for the werewolves ...(no, not the kind who wear black and write poems in gaming magazines) Werewolves ? There wolves. There castle. There Barony...

Also featuring The Na-Baron's prize tournament! YES ! In celebration of is first year as a lovable tyrant, the Baron and Baronne will host a prize tourney with Cool Stuff for the winner(s), belted and non. YES!
