Mini A&S Collegium in Draca Mor in the Kingdom of the Outlands (Grand Junction, Colorado)

Greetings dear cousins in Loch Salann of fair Artemisia!  Love and well wishes we send from the Shire of Draca-Mor, to the east beyond your borders.  May this missive find you and all our cousins in fine fettle and prosperity.
The weekend of May 16-17, 2015 our shire is hosting an A&S Collegium of a small sort.  While indeed Loch Salan is ripe and verdant with exceptional artisans and instructors, we extend this invitation to our kin there.  Furthermore, we hope that you would aid us in reaching out to those who live in holdings east of your locale, who might be interested in this opportunity to gain knowledge and share camaraderie with us, most especially the Incipient Riding of Red Bridge and any good gentles active in the Price or Green River areas.
Here is a link to the Facebook Event page for your ease of use:
Additionally, a link to our website event page is thus:
Crash space is available, and our hospitality is well acclaimed.  We would be honored to have any join us.
Thank you, in advance, for your kindly consideration and assistance in disseminating this invitation amongst the Artemisian kinsmen.  May fortune and good health continue to shine brightly in the Land of Black and Gold!

In humility abundant and ISD,

Most Graciously Yours

2015 Winter Fighter Practice Update

Fighters of Loch Salann! With permission of the Baron and Knight Marshall I make the following announcement! After MUCH looking, and looking, and did I mention looking. We have found a site for fighter practice! We will be starting next Tuesday January 13th from 6-8pm at the Derby Depot!
Address: 1415 South 700 West, #17
It is the back part of the building, look for the DERBY DEPOT signs
Details: The rental agreement requires that NO outside food or drink is allowed on site. Water bottles are the exception to that rule. Please bring water for yourself!
Please note the time change! Practice is starting at 6pm and we must be out PROMPTLY at 8pm.
I mentioned rental agreement. We are required to pay for this site. The rental cost is $65 per hour. Thus we are going to need your help to pay for this site. We are asking that all participants be prepared to chip in for the rental each week. We are asking for $5 dollar donation per practice however we will take all donations large or small. The barony will be doing some fundraising to help offset costs.
If you have any questions, I your friendly Exchequer, will be at practice on 13 January to answer those. The Baron, Baroness, Seneschal, and Knight Marshall are also happy to answer any questions you may have!
Thank you to the MULTIPLE people who worked to try to find a site. You are so appreciated!
