Hello, Western Region! 
Some folks have been asking about our event (*shame* on you...don't 
you read your Black Star's?? *grin*) In any case; here is a synopsis, 
and the same event announcement that went out in the Black Star.

 The event is what we call a "High-Persona Teaching Event"
(that is, we try to make it high-persona, but there aren't any 
regulations... no one's gonna look down their nose if you aren't 
perfect 1520's German;  or even if you aren't 1520's... or German, at 
all!) ....we just hope that people will make an attempt at this 
time/place, and maybe come away having learned something. There will 
be some classes, and a booklet about the period. 
(The event announcment follows...)
