2012: Known World Academy of the Rapier and Known World Costuming Symposium
2012 will be our first KWAR in a few years, and for the next few years it will be on an every-other-year schedule. It will happen in even-numbered years, so as not to happen around the same time as WMAW, the largest Western Martial Arts event that attracts many of our most active re-creators and teachers.
Currently there is no set timeline for bidding to host a KWAR. We need one. Suggestions are welcome.
All bids must comply with Corporate and host kingdom rules for inter-kingdom events. I will review it, and consult with advisors, and reply back. If no other bids have been received yet, some time will be granted to hear if additional bids will be coming in short order. Suggestions on timing are welcome.
If more than one acceptable bid is received, preference will be given to bids that spread the event around geographically. Bids to hold the event outside of the United States are welcome, please ensure the attendance estimates in your budget are reasonable.
