Events scheduled include a meat stew contest, combats, games for lords and ladies, a bardic circle, and athletic competitions for those who do not participate in combat. Wear suitable costumes, bring pavilions. All who sing, dance, or play a musical instrument are inveited to add to the merriment. An attempt is being made to obtain a sales permit so that vendors may hawk their wares.

From the History (by Wilhelm):

Held at the Washington Park Archery Range, Beaverton, OR. Grane the Golden and Karl Silverhorn were the autocrats. There was a meat stew contest, combat, games, and a bardic circle.
