  1. The Equestrian Coordinator, is soliciting sponsorship of Equestrian Special Events.. She needs a Sponsor to provide a "class" at the Equestrian Area Lady Shoshana Drakere is looking for a few good equestrians to demonstrate horsey stuff for the youth populace. The idea here is to have the youth come down to the Equestrian Area for a demonstration, perhaps of horse anatomy, armor, barding, games....she is open to your suggestions. This would be followed by a "barding" class done on plastic horses either under our tents at the Equestrian Area or back at the Youth Center. If you are interested in coordinating this event, or you have any other event you are willing to sponsor please contact me at

  2. As the warrior’s feet take them to wars battlefield, we artisans are blessed with an opportunity to gather and share the knowledge we have gained this year. So, please sign up to teach it.

      B) No Volunteer Spirit will be refused. Any and all volunteers will be happily accepted and appreciated no matter their home kingdom, household, title, lack of title, fighting interests, arts interests, hat size, or any other excuse for why you thought your Volunteer Spirit would be rejected in the past...
