Need Teachers to instruct our future Vikings and Knights!

Autumn War approaches, and as always Blatha an Oir seeks to
entertain and occupy all interests within our Society.  In that quest, we are looking for teachers to
volunteer several 1 to 4 hour classes to teach throughout the event.  They may be standalone single classes, or something
that builds over several classes through the event and can be on anything
related to the SCA- from bobbin lace, dance, siege engines, marshalling, tourney
cooking, button making, service, heraldry, how to make a bow string, and so forth.
Need to arrange with me if they will be hosting the class in
their own encampment, or need a location
Provide me with the name of the class, the class duration,
preference of date and time you want to teach, how much it will cost a student
for materials or handouts provided, the max number of students you wish in the
class, the items you will provide, the things you need the students to bring
with them and a description of the class.
Here is an example:
Title: An Overview of Welsh foods for camp cooking
 Instructor: Angharat
verch Reynulf
 Description: A
summary and taste testing of Welsh foods appropriate to tourney or camp
cooking, with hands on experimentation of a variety of recipes including a cawl
(soup), cawys poby (toasted cheese/Welsh Rarebit) and crempog (savory pancakes).
 Duration: 4 hours   Cost: $8
 Class size: Maximum
of 12 students for the hands on portion, minimum of 3
 additional students
may audit for information if space allows.
Instructor supplies:  Recipe ingredients, utensils, one 3 burner propane stove with griddle, 1
raised firepit with tripod, handout with recipes , tables
Student supplies: Note taking materials, apron, eating
utensils, plate & bowl
Sign up at the event
Bring a chair
Items for the class, if any
Small bills to pay the teacher, if needed.
Be on time.
If you have a class you want to see taught, please comment
or reply in an email and ask for a teacher in that particular class and have
them contact me at celedraug@hotmail.comor message my Facebook account.
Teachers, please let me know by July Coronation so that I
may confirm with you a workable schedule and get it onto the Autumn War website

Last Event's Directions :

The picturesque Nix Farm is conveniently located only 4 miles off I-5 exit 77 in Chehalis Washington. The large fields provide plenty of space for camping and cars are allowed to drive on the grass.
The site is primitive with limited shade and NO water available, so prepare accordingly.

Quiet hours are from 2AM to 8AM.
RV and handicap camping will be located near the central activities, no hookups are available. RV's may run their generators at any time.

Take I-5 to exit 77 in Chehalis, WA. Turn west onto Hwy
6 toward Pe Ell, go approximately 1.7 miles. Turn left on Hwy 603. Go
up hill. At approximately 1.7 miles turn right onto Nix RD. Rd. Go to end and follow one-way road to site.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
