Heraldic Collegium -- Kingdom of the West / College of Heralds

October 22-23, 1988 (AS XXIII)

From The Page (October, 1988):

All members of the West Kingdom College of Heralds and all other interested persons are invited to spend the weekend of October 22-23 in Golden Rivers, participating in the first (annual?) Western Heraldic Collegium. The site is "Re-Ed West", a school at (address omitted), Sacramento. The Collegium will open at 8:30 am on Saturday and classes will run until 5:30 pm, with a lunch break. There is a store within walking distance and fast food within a close drive, but bringing a sack lunch is recommended. Saturday night we'll all go out to dinner and then retire to a revel at the new home of Kevin O'Fiodhabhra and Caroline O'Cainnigh. Maps and directions to the revel site will be available at the collegium. Sleep space should also be available at Kevin and Caroline's, please call if you will be needing it or further directions. Sunday classes for the collegium will start at 10:30 am and will finish by 4:00 pm. Classes will include: How to Blazon (Book Heraldry 102), On Good Heraldic Style (Book 103), Being a Good Heraldic Officer (Book/Voice 110), Basic Name Research (Book 120), A Systematic Approach to Conflict Research (Book 151), Basics of Continental Heraldry (Book 171), The Old Rules and the New Rules -- Some Comentary (Book 190), Basic Heraldic Art (Heraldic Art 101), Audibility on the Field (Voice Heraldry 101), Good Field Style (Voice 102), Basic Court Heraldry (Voice 120), and the Order of Precedence (Voice/Book 130). If there are enough interested newcomers to heraldry, we will arrange special tutoring for Book Heraldry 101 (What do all those funny words mean?). For more information, please call the Autocrat, Alison von Markhetm, at (phone), or the site autocrat, Kevin O'Fiodhabhra, at (phone).
