The Canton of Gleann Iaruinn in conjunction with Shawnee State University’s
S.W.O.R.D. student group are once again hosting a Schola on the campus of
Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio on April 11th beginning at 9am
and lasting until about 6-8pm depending on class volume. We are calling all
teachers interested in teaching classes to both SCAdians and the mundane
peoples of the student body that wish to attend. Enterance fees are $5 per
person, $3 for SCAdians, or $10 per family ($15 per non-SCA family). Our
website will be up this Thursday and we’ll have more information there. All
teachers and their families get in free!
Food can be purchased at the price of $6.50 for a lunch buffet and $8.50 for
dinner buffet. We’re working on getting this price down, so keep a look out
We are in desperate need of teachers willing to make the trek to Southern
Ohio. We need children’s classes, music, sewing, dancing, cooking, A&S,
Fighting…. .anything you can think of.
This event is open to the general public as an outreach project to help
increase both the numbers of the local SCA groups as well as the student
group, so there will be those not dressed up in the various classes.
Finally, if you would like to sell anything, merchant areas are free. The
more the merrier.
Get the word out, as well. If you know of anyone interested in teaching
their newest studies or looking to attend a laid-back event, please let them
know so that they may join us in a fun day full of events.
A brief description of available teaching spaces:
Shawnee State University <http://shawnee. edu> is a small state university
situated on the Ohio River at the crossroads of Rt. 23 and Rt. 52. The
campus currently has layers of construction going on in an attempt to expand
quickly to meet the growing needs of the local student population. SSU has
a student body of about 4,000 in a town of about 20,000 people.
We have three fields for combat or outdoor activities, a dance hall (with
hardwood floor), over a dozen classrooms including those designed for
chemistry experiments) , a planetarium, and several open halls. If your
needs require a special room or area for your activities, please let us know
that we may work to accommodate you.
Thank you all for your time and consideration,
Lord Arthur of Gleann Iaruinn
