Subject: [SCA-JML] Proposed Pennsic Class List
Greetings from Solveig! I have submitted the following class list to the
Chancellor of the Pennsic University. Needless to say, I intend to teach all
of these. Some of them may not appear in the printed Pennsic Schedule. I
will post exact times and locations later. However, I can assure you that
the Incense demo and the Tea demo will both take place at Clan Yama
Kaminari. I look forward to seeing all of you at one time or another at
Pennsic. I do hope that Ii dono will undertake putting together a composite
schedule of all East Asian classes again. I think that it was very useful.
