Bread and Circuses Collegium Class Schedule

Poster: jthies@vt.edu (Genevieve)

Bread & Cirsues Collegium       April 12th

        The Barony of Black Diamond hails all to come and enjoy the beauty
of learning. Classes and activities cover the spectrum to entice all
prospective students.  
        Classes range from fiber arts to costuming to cooking to martial
arts.  There will be a break for lunch during the day where lunch will be
provided.  Other activities during the day  include boffer bouts, an Arts &
Sciences display of the Baronial Champion's Competition, and the making of
the Queen's favors.  There will be an auction following the classes selling
many fine wares.  Donations to the auction will be dearly appreciated.
These proceeds will go to benefit the Baronial Pavillion Fund, and supplies
for the cantons'  A&S classes.  
        There will be no fee unless for specific classes, but donations are
appreciated, especially if you are eating lunch.  Crash space is available
amongst the members of the barony, and there are several hotels in the area.
We plan on organizing a group dinner to a fine tavern that the Incipient
Canton of Cwmnewydd has to offer.  There is also a post-revel planned with
dancing and revelry.  
        The site opens on April 12th at 9:00am, and classes start at 10:00.
The site is bone dry and no live steel is allowed (college campus site).
The post revel, however, is discretely wet.  
        If you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to contact
any of the following.
