Attention artisans and sponsors! The entry application window for Queen’s Prize will open on July 31st, and close at midnight, August 27th. This great A&S semi-annual competition is open to any Calontiri who do not yet have a Grant of Arms level award in A&S, but does require the entrant to have a sponsor from the ranks of Grant of Arms A&S orders or higher.

If you are needing help looking for a sponsor, there are a number of members in our Barony that have volunteered to sponsor someone for QPT this year. Any one of these individuals would be spectacular to work with and would be more than willing to help you with your entry.

Also, if you are interested in judging, submit your volunteer forms by the end of the entry period.

Don’t Forget

Our Castellan, Lord ØyurikR Randulfson, will be holding a class on “Stratagems Towards Better Recruitment” during next week’s Populace gathering. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate!

Valor is around the corner. Our home will be open to many of our friends and family across our Kingdom and beyond. Valor XXXVIII will be lively, well attended, and busy! Please consider volunteering to help out at our biggest event of the year!

There are many good folks in this Barony and Kingdom who are worthy of recognition. Please send award recommendations for all the wonderful stuff you saw folks do at War, or here at home. Do it now!
