Simonn provides this information:
> During the morning there were many classes to attend or at least observe.
> Lady Bridgit taught Equestian 101, and Sir Alexis taught Equestrian Saddles. I was able to observe those classes
> over the shoulders of participants and hear the good instruction offered.
> Lord Miguel de Tribuchet discussed the design and operation of class "B" ballistas and class "A" tribuchets.
> He and his helpers demonstrated the loading and firing of those weapons then provided time for class members
> to target objects at various ranges. Lord Eric Greyfox and Lord Robert Robertson received siege authorizations during
> the course of the afternoon's 3-hour class. Lord Miguel offered plans and assistance for groups/individuals wishing
> to construct their own siege weapons. Lord Miguel also provided Siege Rules handouts.
> The Armory at home and the Siege Engineer will most definitely benefit from the information. We know the
> barony has persons interested in manning siege wapeapons for War, including a crew of Ballista Babes.
