Announcing the 2002 An Tir Heraldic Symposium!

We Want You!! Yes, You!!

Discover the secrets of what heralds and scribes REALLY do! The An Tir
College of Heralds invites you to join us at the Kingdom Heraldic Symposium,
March 23-24, 2002, hosted by the Barony of Glymm Mere.

The best part is you don’t have to be a herald or a scribe to attend! This
event is open to everyone — especially welcome are folks who want to learn
about all the fun things heralds and scribes do in a relaxed setting.

On Saturday (March 23) we have a full day of classes planned for scribes,
for book heralds, for court heralds, for field heralds, for heraldic
artists, and for illuminators. Get expanded information on the classes
listed below at the Symposium website, To pre-register for a
class (strongly encouraged) contact Baron David of Moffat, E-mail
moc.onuj@taffomataffoma. Classes are $1 per class to cover the handout, to
be paid at gate in addition to the site fee. Additional fees for supplies
may be collected by the instructor(s).

By special request, a new class is being offered, “What Their Excellencies
Meant to Say…” It is designed for non-heralds in particular, and will
feature tips for working with court heralds at all levels — Baronial,
Principality, Kingdom, and Known World. Nobles and those who aspire to
Crown or Coronet will get valuable insights on what they’ll need from the
herald, what the herald needs from them, and much more. Retinue members and
scribes will benefit from this class, too. New heralds just starting to do
court will find this a treasure trove of helpful ideas.

Sunday activities will include a Black Lion staff meeting, followed by a
Laurel Roadshow, and Lion’s Blood (Kingdom submissions herald) decision
meeting in the afternoon. The Laurel Roadshow and Lion’s Blood decision
meetings are open to all. The locations for these meetings will be
announced on site.
