Herald's Collegium

Saturday November 15th, 2014
Walnut Creek, California

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.

AutocratMaster Antonio Giordano da Sicilia
