I'd like to add my thanks to Katherine's for all who taught at the War. I
had a great time and it looked like so did everyone else. I saw some pretty
huge classes and had really good times at evening dance.
Don Lyev - You did an awsome jon and it was really appreciated by everyone -
not just a few. You did tons of work supporting dance this year - you and
your staff should be thanked many times over. It really helped all the
pre-planning you did in addition to being avaliable on site. Both very hard
things to manage and stay current with. I especially appreciated the
So - I'll admit I am one of those instructors who taught a lot of classes
(admit? hello its in the booklet...). Anyway - I really feel that Pennsic is
the best place for an instructor who wants to do a series of classes to
really have a good oportunity to do it. Kingdom and Local events dont have
a large enough draw so would be lost. And KWDS class space is at an even
more premium and during a severly limited time frame. I looked at Pennsic
as a chance to really cover my theme as best I could - because the more I

do. And judging how my classes turned out, I dont think the kind of class
series I taught would have been suitable for any other event.
But, on the other hand, I dont know that I would vollunteer to teach this
many classes if they had not all been within the same concept. I had only
heard at Pennsic that there were people who were wanting to teach that got
told no, and I hope no one feels that I took a chance to teach away from
But - it was all great fun.
