      Wouldn't mind at all but am planning on working towards a combat archery that day, so it would have to be during a time that doesn't interfere with that.

      Subject: [Ayreton] SCRIBAL DAY OF PLAY Part Deux, Ragnorak Rampage

      Greetings one and all---
      As one of the co-autocrats of the recent Scribal Day of Play in our Barony of Ayreton, I wanted to pass along that our neighboring barony of Carraig Ban wishes to have their own Scribal Day of Play at their upcoming Ragnorak Rampage, and they requested if possible that some of the teachers we featured at our event recur their roles at their event (event details here: http://www.carraigban.org/event2.html)
      Our neighboring barony was impressed with our recent scribal event and would like to replicate it within their borders. If you'd like to teach a scribal class at Ragnorak Rampage, please offer your services to the autocrats, whose contact info is on the event page above. It is my understanding they'll accept either the class(es) taught at our event, other new classes, or both.  Just passing along the word!

      Attached you'll find the final class schedule for the SCRIBAL DAY OF PLAY, this Sunday, March 4.  We hope to see you there!
      Regretfully, I will not be there because I am dealing with a family emergency out of state. But it has been a pleasure helping to plan this event.  Teachers, attendees, and volunteers, your on-site event contact is Mistress Katherine von Schlosserwald, OL.  Please consult her either on site or ahead of time with any final questions, at knwkfw@....
