Newcomer’s Encampment
– Canton of Akornebir


May 01, 2009 to May 03,


New to the SCA or know someone you would like to get
interested?  Come to the Canton of Akornebir’s
Newcomer’s Encampment for a weekend filled with
learning and an introduction to the SCA. First, if any member
has someone they know who is not a member, non-members get
into this event for $3 as long as they accompany a
member.  To make this a truly enjoyable experience for
those who stop to look, volunteer companions will be paired
with new folks at the gate.
There will be free classes all weekend geared toward those
looking for an introduction to the society.  Already a
member?  Then come and teach; those interested in
teaching a class please contact the autocrat and get on the
schedule.  Teachers get in for half the gate fee. 
Not the teaching type? Then come and test your skill in our
youth and heavy combat championships.
Speaking of classes, this is a great opportunity for new
instructors to “get their feet wet” and teach a beginning
level class.  All instructors get into the event for the
weekend for just $5.  Please send me an e-mail ASAP if
you have any questions or if you would like to teach
something – anything.  This is not an Ithra so really
when I say anything I mean ANYTHING (SCA appropriate of
course).  Saturday class time is now filled
– there is still room for Sunday thuogh so please let me
know ASAP if you would like to teach.
