Just trying to narrow down general times:

Weapon checking classes will occur concurrently with weapon check.

For all of the other days, there will one class during the morning and then one in the afternoon.

I've edited my original post.

Right now, I'm looking to do the classes sometime during the open fighting periods in the morning and afternoon. Assuming the P.A. system is in place again (Awesome system, BTW.), I will announce when they will be happening.

Unless anything else is going on in that area, I was considering doing the classes over by the main fire area. It's centrally located to the camping and has better shade than near the main field.

In an effort to save on printing, I will not be providing handouts but I will have a sign-up sheet available during the classes for people to give me an email address where I can share the class notes.
