The Eighth Year

Second Baronial Expedition -- Barony of the Angels
July 7, 1973

From The Page (July, 1973):

On July 7, AS VIII, the Barony of the Angels will embark upon its Second Baronial Expedition, its destination, the Isles. Staging area for Angelic expeditionaries will be the home of Lady Bevin Fraser of Sterling (address/phone omitted) promptly at 8:30 a.m. Expeditionaries are asked to bring sufficient picnic food for their party, and to bring suitable swim attire if desired. (Due to mundane laws, medieval swim attire should probably be worn over [or under] acceptable 20th century swim clothes.) Once on our way, we will rendevous with a contingent from the newly arising Barony of the Isles, at the home of Kathy Lear (address/phone omitted), which is within trekking distance from the beach we have reserved. Folk desiring to go directly to Santa Barbara on their own should plan to be at the Abrego address by 10:00-10:30. From there we will go to an adjoining picnic area, and thence to the cliffs and beaches of Goleta. We have been warned that the Santa Barbara beaches have much tar, so wear footgear which will not be ruined by such.

From the History (by Wilhelm):

The members of the Barony traveled to Goleta, CA, in the Barony of the Isles, for swimming at the beach. Diantha de Castalia became the Mistress of Arts.
