The Barony of Sentinels' Keep is pleased to host Kingdom Collegium on Nov. 6th 2010. The event will be held on the third floor of the University Center on the U of M campus in Missoula, MT. There is elevator access for your convenience. The site will open at 9 AM and close at 8 PM.
There will be no site fee for this event but voluntary donations will be gratefully accepted. There will be a $1 class fee for each class, (in addition to any material fees that the instructor may charge) payable at the class sign up table. Material fees will be paid directly to instructors at the beginning of each class.
Due to University policies, there are some site restrictions: No pets, no alcohol and no cooking. There is no smoking within 25' of buildings. (smoking restrictions on the U of M campus may be changing – we will update that information in the fall) There will be space outdoors for fighting classes, but no protection from what ever Mother Nature deems fit to bless us with. There will be no feast or lunch provided but there are food vendors in the building for lunch, and many eating establishments a short drive away.
