The Ninth Year

St. Gunther’s Tourney -- Barony of Calafia
January 19, 1975

Held in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. The squires hid the chalice and the fighters had to go find it. Then they fought over it. Whoever survived to show it was the winner. There were boffer lists for the squires and various games. The autocrat was Diana de Savigny. Baron Sárkányi admitted Tyra Stuart of Moray to the Order of the Seraphic Star, an Angels Order.

"Sárkányi Gerö was not Baron of Angels by January IX, Piers & Ximena were. It seems to me that Sárkányi left the summer before-possibly after the Naess mess." -- Charles of Dublin

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.
