2198Re: [WestKingdomEQ] Re: Fwd: Conceptualizing "Collegium Equus"...feedback please?
- Nov 6, 2004Greetings ariadne-
I think it sounds fantastic, I would be intersted in attending and in
helping out in any way possible (marshaling, jousting
demo/authorizations, teaching a class on period mounted combat
technique, are a few things I could do). I would also be interested
in renting a horse for the weekend.
>>I would most likely attend same if it did not conflict with a WestKingdom Crown/Coronation, or Cynagua Coronet/Investiture.<<
