We have many activities planned:
For the A & S types, we will offer a variety of classes such as: a class on banners, a scribal class, class on crossbow history (probably Italian), a class on Hastings, a class on pewter casting. There are several others that are more tentative. (A more complete list of classes will be posted as soon as we receive confirmation from teachers)

We encourage a display of Arts and Science projects (finished or not) for a Populace vote

For the fighting types we will have a tourney (or two). A torchlight tourney is planned on Friday night. We will also have an archery range set up.
