Fwd: Pennsic class changes!
- PLEASE FORWARD EVERYWHERE!
New rules as follows, READ #3!!!
1. Children's classes will no longer be held in private camps. This
an absolute, with no exceptions. Every child's class will be held in
A&S tent or at Children's Point. Martial or Archery classes will be
held at the appropriate places designated by the Marshals or
This policy is for the well-being and safety of the children.
2. A&S tents will no longer be available for any private parties in
evenings. This policy has become necessary due to misuse of the
facilities by some people in prior years.
3. There will be no signup for classes. Classes will be entirely done
on a first-come, first-served basis. After 8 years of doing prior
signup for classes, a new idea is being tested. This will be easier
the students, who no longer have to get up at 0-dark-thirty to stand
line in the rain or the heat, or miss classes due to the afternoon
sign-up. This will also make life easier for the teachers. They will
longer have to pick up class lists at A&S Point prior to their class.
They will no longer be obligated to lead students to private camps.
However, they will be obligated to write out DETAILED DIRECTIONS to
camp where the class is being held once they arrive on site. This can
be done when the teachers check-in at A&S Point. The teachers will be
allowed to limit the number of handouts or kits available. However,
they will be obligated to take any extra students waiting for their
class as auditors, unless this is a safety issue. If this is the
please make a note on the application to teach mentioning the maximum
number of auditors you are willing to take. The procedure for this
be simple. Just line up outside the A&S tent that the class will be
held in prior to the class. If the class is being held in a private
camp, the students must get directions at A&S Point. Please remember
that this is an experiment. It is the first time that this has been
tried. There will probably be some frustrations for a few students or
teachers, but we believe that this will be a welcome idea for the
