[Apr LoAR] &
Month day: the date on the Letter of Intent, Letter of Pend
and Discussion, or Letter of Intent to Protect.
(Month day): for administrative reasons, this LoI has not yet been scheduled.
[P Month day]: postmarked on that bracketed date, so the LoI is redated or postponed.
"-": no LoI is scheduled for that meeting from that kingdom.
Aug: Pelican's main meeting was held on August 3. She held the usual Pennsic "road show" meeting on August 15, ruling on Calontir's LoI of April 26.
Feb: Wreath's meeting is tentatively scheduled for February 8. Pelican's meeting is scheduled for February 8.
Mar: Wreath's meeting is tentatively scheduled for March 22.
Not all letters of intent may be considered when they are originally scheduled on this cover letter. The date of mailing of the LoI, date of receipt of the Laurel packet, or other factors may delay consideration of certain letters of intent. Additionally, some letters of intent received may not have been scheduled because the administrative requirements (receipt of the forms packet, receipt of the necessary fees, et cetera) have not yet been met.
REMINDER: Until all administrative requirements are met, the letter may not be scheduled.
As we are more and more interconnected with electronic mail and it becomes a normal and preferred method of exchanging documents, it is only natural to set up facilities to aid in that interchange. One way to aid in the electronic dissemination of the Letters of Intent and Letters of Comment is by setting up official distribution lists. Such mailing lists give a single address to simplify sending to those who wish to get the letters via e-mail. A distribution list also allows a person wanting to receive the electronic letters to update a single location to receive the letters from many senders.
The distribution list for the Letters of Intent will be open to anyone who wishes to subscribe. A wider visibility of the LoIs can be a learning tool for those interested understanding how the processing of submissions works in the CoA. Although subscription to the list will be open to anyone, the postings to the list will be moderated. The file format standard for distribution will be RTF. The LoI mailing list address is LoI@sca.org. To subscribe to the LoI list, visit the Web page http://www.sca.org/mailman/listinfo/LoI.
The distribution list for the Letters of Comment will be a closed subscription list, allowing only the current members of the College of Arms to subscribe. All subscriptions and mailings to list will be moderated to ensure the traffic on this list remains on-topic. The list address is LoC@sca.org. To subscribe to the LoC mailing list, visit the Web page http://www.sca.org/mailman/listinfo/LoC.
For all Letters of Intent, Comment, Response, Correction, et cetera, send one paper copy to each of Laurel PKoA and Wreath QoA at their mailing addresses as shown on the College of Arms Mailing List.
Send Laurel office copies of all submissions-related paper, including
Letters of Intent, Comment, Response, Correction, et cetera (note: such paper copies are in addition to the personal copies for Laurel and Wreath mentioned above)
Submission packets (one copy of each name form plus documentation, including petitions; two copies of each armory form plus two copies of any associated documentation, including petitions)
Cheques or money orders for submissions, payable to "SCA Inc.-College of Arms"
Send Laurel office copies of all submissions-related electronic files to email@example.com. In particular, the Laurel Clerk would very much appreciate e-mailed copies of all LoIs, LoCs, LoRs, et cetera.
Send roster changes and corrections to Lord Symond Bayard le Gris, Bruce R. Nevins, 2527 E. 3rd St., Tucson, AZ, 85716-4114, 520-795-6000, 520-795-0158 (fax), firstname.lastname@example.org. College of Arms members can also request a copy of the current roster from Symond.
For subscriptions to the paper copy of the LoAR, please contact Symond, above. The cost for an LoAR subscription is $25 a year. Please make all checks or money orders payable to "SCA Inc.-College of Arms". For subscriptions to the electronic copy of the LoAR, please contact Laurel at email@example.com. The electronic copy is available free of charge.
For all administrative matters, or for questions about whom to send to, please contact Laurel Principal King of Arms, whose contact information heads this letter.
Pray know that I remain
François la Flamme
