RE: [EKSouth] EKU in Iron Bog
- What do you consider the appropriate number of classrooms & classroom sizes
necessary to properly host such an event? And what would be the maximum
number of attendees we should plan to accommodate?
I ask because sites in our area can be both expensive and often have limited
facilities appropriate for classes, especially those sites that also have
space for both equestrian and CA/Siege/Throwing Weapons outside.

The first East Kingdom University sponsored Fighter's Collegium was a
wonderful weekend event. In concert with the Barony of Iron Bog over
100 people came out to shoot arrows, throw huge objects with siege
engines, learn about tactics and command theory from some of the
East's best fighters. The first Southern Region Rapier Championship
was held along with 2 tracts of Historical and hands on rapier
classes. The youth field was buzzing with excitement as 2 complete
tracts of classes were offered along with a full day of open field
HUGE THANK YOU to Don Collin Monro and his competent staff for the
wonderful job hosting this event. Thank you to the Lovely Baroness
Kathryne and Magnificent Baron Lawrence for allowing the University
to be held in their illustrious Barony of Iron Bog.
It is with great appreciation that I, Erlan, Chancellor of the
University give to all those who volunteered to teach the diverse
classes offered at the War College this past weekend.
It is the Universities intent to host another one next year,
perhaps with even more classes and more attendees. Please check your
calendars for the availability of the second weekend in September for
such an event and please check with your local branch to see if you
would like to place a bid for this event which is truly the Sport of
Erlandr Skald di Norlandi, Chancellor of the East Kingdom University.
