Thank you for coming, we couldn’t have done it without you.
The weekend was crammed as full of wonderful activities as we could get it (although we are learning to build in breathing room).
We hope the changes you made were positive, and you can get a chance to relax and integrate everything you took in during the conference. We wish for you a peaceful transition, continued benefit from the community, and a great holiday season.
This year don’t miss the Vendor Village in the same building as hospitality- in the time share resorts where our sleeping rooms are!
We will have the usual vendors room, but we will also have these wonderful folks selling and reading in their rooms, convenient and full of amazing stuff!

“We All Have Souls” by Tom Blaschko. This is the first book in the series. This series asks two fundamental questions: What evidence shows that souls exist? and What are souls good for? Of course, the first question we need to ask is What is a soul? That’s what this book is about. It looks at evidence for souls, what our souls can do, and how knowing about souls can make our lives happier, safer, and more meaningful. Tom will be presenting this year.

Auntie Arwen, known in the “real world” as Jane T. Sibley, has been a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) ever since the first Pennsic held at Coopers’ Lake. Actually, she joined right after Pennsic 5, which was in 1975. She started out selling tag sale items at Pennsic, and then graduated to crystals, tumble stones, crystal balls, and suchlike at science fiction cons as well as at SCA events. This was successful for many years, but when the crystal fad began to die out, she switched over to spice blends. Beginning with twelve blends, over the years the variety has increased to today’s over 300 blends, as well as salts, peppercorns, and more.
Yes, this is the same Jane Sibley who started Changing Times Changing Worlds (with Tchipakkan and friends) nine years ago. She will be back this year, at the conference is often found at Hospitality, if not teaching or attending classes! (It’s SO good to have passed the chair on!) But don’t worry- Colleen will be holding the fort in the dealers room! Remember to bring back your spice jars for a discount on your next bottle!
An expert on Runes and Norse magic and folklore, she will be running a Norseworking Healing Circle again this year. And you may be able to find her books in the vendors.
