The West Kingdom College of Heralds presents our semi-annual Heralds Collegium on November 15, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. in Walnut Creek, California. This is effectively a meeting and educational seminar; please dress in mundane clothing and not SCA garb.
The site will open at 8:30 a.m. with a welcome to Heralds and those interested in Heraldry: coffee and muffins/croissants. Feel free to throw-in for your fair share of the cost.
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 must be limited to a one hour period.
Classes will be feature a number of out of kingdom heralds as well as senior kingdom heralds.
Autocrat: Master Antonio Giordano da Sicilia
