I have been meaning to ask...will there be a Children's corner at the
event?  My two smalls and one not so small will be joining me at the event
in the afternoon, the oldest is a budding Laurel in training and will attend
classes but I wondered if there was a table for kids crafts I could
participate in with them?

In service,
Lady Gwen

> brief description of how Ansteorra became what it is today, starting from
> the Alamo and the Sooners (really).  Most emphasis will be on the beginnings

> begin with the period use of titles, and then discuss SCA titles as they
> developed over forty years of use.  Topics will include when to use them,
