[WES] Collegium Nebulorum & Westermark Samurai Madness

Come one come all to a day of classes and fun. Collegium Nebulorum is being held in conjunction with Westermark Madness at Ed Levin Park on Sept 15, 2012. We will have classes - all suitable for newcomers as well as those more familiar with the SCA but want to learn more!

There is no additional cost to attend Collegium, and Madness is a donation gratefully accepted event, so just come and learn in a relaxed fun atmosphere.

Class information can be found online.

**********************************************************************

Come one, come all to Samurai Madness, where East meets Westermark!

You are cordially invited to spend the weekend frolicking with us as the Barony of the Westermark pulls back the silk veil, and explores all things Japanese. There will be classes, contests, and Haiku's a plenty. Fighters beware, spears and katanas are the weapons of the day. Fencing hijinks too. Will your clan be the first to defend, and escort your tea bearing brethren across the field of battle to win the relay? Or maybe you will be victorious in carving the best likeness of Their Excellencies out of a daikon radish? These are but a few of the challenges that lay before you. The Barony of the Westermark will also be hosting Collegium Nebulorum. Put on your best hakima, and join us for fun, fighting, and learning.

Site Information: The site will be at Sandy Wool Lake Group Area in Ed Levin Park in Milpitas, CA. Site opens at 3pm on Friday, closes at 3pm on Sunday. We have decided not to charge a fee but donations to help defray our expenses will be cheerfully extorted… er… accepted. Our pavilion gave up the ghost, and we are making efforts to raise money for a replacement.
