Herald's Collegium

Saturday February 8th, 2014
Walnut Creek, California
The West Kingdom College of Heralds presents our semi-annual Heralds Collegium on February 8, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. at Concord, California.  This is effectively a meeting and educational seminar; please dress in mundane clothing and not SCA garb.  For lunch, we will order pizza to be delivered and those who wish to take part may throw-in for their share; all others are asked to bring lunch as there are few options for "fast food" and the lunch break (12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.) must be limited to a one hour period.
