The period encampment was the creation and work of a group of individuals,
primarily from Bryn Gwlad. Some people criticized them for being "snooty."
For whatever reason, they did not choose to do it again.

I, too enjoy Lyonnesse. One of the most enjoyable events in recent history
was the Laurels' Prize tourney up in Steppes. But a lot of that had to do
with the incredibly pleasant weather we had.
