Psssst... Mistress Reginleif, you left one out of the list of "willing to
And, to quote a certain beloved professor (no, I've never studied
*directly* under the man's tutelage...):
"So use your eyes, and plagiarize --
But, please, to be calling it research! ....
One man he takes the credit,
One man, he takes the blame
And Nikolai Ivonovitch Lobchevski
Is his name!"

BTW, I Am Not A Peer of the SCA. I'm not resident in Elfsea, but
I am trying to visit more often. Don't particularly expect to become
either a peer or Elfsea resident any time soon.
However, I too am willing to teach (I've presented all of the following
at one event, collegium, A&S gathering, or another over the last
twenty years, under a variety of class titles -- or just one-to-one):
History, Theory, and Practice of the Bard (multicultural viewpoint)
"Pre-History" of Sumptuary Law
Applied Woodworking: Construction, Care and Feeding of the Staff
Specialized Metalworking: Theory and Practice of Sharpening Blades
Everyday Ornament prior to 1600
Basics of Modern SCA Camping
"Survival" Calligraphy (extremely basic beginner level)
Heraldry for the Compleat Novice: Voice, Book, & Field
Errr, I don't know if I can make it to the Heraldic thingamy,
but I'll try to consider it a priority. If I'm there, tap me if needed
as an emergency replacement instructor (or for whatever
except manual labor -- just sprained my wrist, dagnabit!)
