I, for one, would love to hear this lady speak on this subject. I don't do
drumming but I'm interested in all sorts of things. This is the reason I
a monthly A&S class when I was baronial A&S Minister several years ago.

We have. For instance, we brought in an outside speaker to teach stained
working in the baronial A&S class because there wasn't anyone in the barony
who knew how who wanted to teach.

It has been done in other kingdoms, but I don't know about Ansteorra.

I think it is still to be decided. The idea of putting in a bid by Bryn
Gwlad was discussed recently. It is an event I have considered
autocrating for several years. For instance, I'd love to have a string
of classes taught in persona similar to the ones taught at the
Enchanted Grounds at Pennsic. I'd love to have some period cooking
classes scheduled around lunchtime. I'd like to have SCA classes
(how to be an autocrat) as well as craft classes.
What would other people like to see? What would you come for? What
would you Not come for?
