It's my pleasure to forward this invitation for teachers and students by the Diamond Principal Herald:
... If any from Ansteorra would like to join us (to teach or to learn), we would love to have you. The Caney Center is in Minden, LA only about an hour and change from the Texas state line on I-20, and the site is all inclusive (breakfast, lunch, feast, climate controlled cabins with single beds). The complete website is not up yet, but some information is available at: http://kingdomofgleannabhann.org/index.php?view=details&id=54%3Ahavoc-shire-of-loch-bais&option=com_eventlist&Itemid=3

Subject: Gleann Abhann Heraldic and Scribal Symposium- Call for Instructors
To: GA_scribes at yahoogroups.com, GA_Heralds at yahoogroups.com
Greetings to the Heraldic and Scribal Communities of Gleann Abhann and the Knowne World!
This year's Heraldic and Scribal Symposium will be held in conjunction with Loch Bais' annual event, Havoc, at the Caney Methodist Conference Center in Minden LA on October 30-Nov. 1. We are hoping to offer a wide variety of heraldic and scribal courses to our guests, and for that- your help is needed!
All classes of Heraldic or Scribal nature are encouraged, however, interest has been specifically voiced in the following arenas:
How to lay out an original scroll without tears
Using period manuscripts as inspiration
How the submission process works
Running a List
How to use the Internet for Good and not Evil (identifying good sources when it comes to names)
Heraldic display/Heraldic clothing
Various name and blazonry classes
In addition to classes, we are hoping for other good heraldically-themed activities. Seeing as the weekend does cover October 31st, we've already made plans for heraldic pumpkin carving, but would love to hear ideas about quests, games, or other activities that could appeal to heralds, scribes, and those waiting to be converted to one. :-)
Thank you for your consideration, and I hope everyone plans to attend!
Permission is given to cross-post this call for instructors in an appropriate manner.
