For the May 2005 meetings, printed July 29, 2005

To all the College of Arms and all others who may read this missive, from Elisabeth Laurel, Gwenllian Wreath, and Margaret Pelican, greetings.

The May Laurel decisions were made at the Pelican meeting held on Saturday, May 15, 2005 and the Wreath meeting held on Saturday, May 30, 2005. The meetings considered the following letters of intent: Ansteorra (20 Jan 05), Laurel (20 Jan 05), An Tir (21 Jan 05), Atlantia (21 Jan 05), Drachenwald (22 Jan 05), Atenveldt (23 Jan 05), East (24 Jan 05), Ăthelmearc (25 Jan 05), West (25 Jan 05), Outlands (27 Jan 05), Caid (28 Jan 05), Lochac (28 Jan 05) and Trimaris (31 Jan 05).

The June Laurel decisions were made at the Pelican meeting held on Saturday, June 18, 2005 and the Wreath decision meeting were held in two parts; the incoming Wreath on Sunday, June 19 and the current Wreath on Saturday, June 25, 2005. The meetings considered the following letters of intent: Gleann Abhann (3 Feb 05), Calontir (14 Feb 05), Middle (20 Feb 05), Drachenwald (22 Feb 05), West (22 Feb 05), Ansteorra (23 Feb 05), Artemisia (23 Feb 05), Atlantia (24 Feb 05), Atenveldt (25 Feb 05), Ealdormere (25 Feb 05), Outlands (25 Feb 05), An Tir (26 Feb 05), Lochac (28 Feb 05), and Northshield (28 Feb 05).

The July Laurel decisions were made at the Pelican meeting held on Saturday, July 17, 2005 and the Wreath decision meeting was held on Sunday, July 17 2005. There was also a roadshow at KWHS on Sunday July 24, 2005. The meetings considered the following letters of intent: Middle (20 Mar 05), Ăthelmearc (24 Mar 05), Ansteorra (24 Mar 05), Atlantia (24 Mar 05), Drachenwald (25 Mar 05), East (25 Mar 05), An Tir (28 Mar 05), Caid (28 Mar 05), Lochac (28 Mar 05), Outlands (28 Mar 05), Northshield (29 Mar 05), Atenveldt (30 Mar 05), West (30 Mar 05), Meridies (31 Mar 05), and Trimaris (31 Mar 05).

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.

From Laurel: LoI Tables Online

As you know I changed the cover letter format a couple of months ago because of many requests to show the scheduled LoIs in text form, as had been done previously. But just so the tabularly-inclined among us don't feel left out, the table in question may now be viewed online as a link from the Laurel website, at http://www.sca.org/heraldry/status.html. Many thanks to Meradudd Codex and Shauna Ragged Staff for making this possible.
