From the History (by Wilhelm):

Held in the First Unitarian Church, Kensington, California. Lady Adrienne of Toledo hosted this benefit for The Page. King Andrew attended.


Annotations:
“His Majesty spent a goodly part of the evening sitting on various ladies' laps among other good natured flirting (this has bearing on events in a few more months). As Henrik noted - Sir Earl of Morris (recently returned from Japan) and his lady's tandem performance of Iaido kata was a high point.” – Kevin Peregrynne

Disclaimer: This history may have errors in it, as much of the detail is “remembered” history, or as one of the cover pages of the original type-written manuscript states “The material within is derived from the information printed in The Crown Prints and in The Page, and from the memories of the participants.” The original document was typed on onion-skin paper, with hand-written notes (often in the margins). All attempts have been made to reconcile the notes with the original document.

Annotations, when they are added, are from The Annotated History of the West, Volume 1, which is the same text as Master Wilhelm's mentioned above, with commentary from members of the SCA who were active at the time of the event, and are added to help clarify questions and expand on what happened and why.
