Be patient. Thomas will return your call when he can. He is reliable,
but he has many other things to attend to. Kingdom MoAS is a position where
a lot of people have problems they want you to solve, now, and they feel it
necessary to tell you about them often and in grisly detail. Been there,
done that, didn't particularly enjoy it.
If you'll give me your percussion expert's name and some way of
contacting her, I'll be glad to talk to her about the prospect of presenting
a class in our context.
