Not all letters of intent may be considered when they are originally scheduled on this cover letter.

REMINDER: Until all administrative requirements are met, the letter may not be scheduled.

From The Sovereigns of Arms: Thanks!

We would like to extend our thanks to the people of the Shire of Dragons Mist in the Kingdom of An Tir for their hospitality and an absolutely wonderful weekend. Lady Teceangl Bach and her staff did a fantastic job. We will carry many wonderful memories of the Kingdom and the gracious people we met while there.

From Laurel: KWHSS 2011

At KWHSS in An Tir, we extended the bid process for next year's KWHSS until July 31, since there were no bids at that time. Atlantia has submitted the only bid before the deadline. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that next year's Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium will be held in Atlantia, in High Point, North Carolina on the weekend of June 24-26, 2011. More information is available on OSCAR or by contacting Herrin Gisela vom Kreuzbach, the event steward.

From Wreath: Magen David Adom

A submission this month used a red Star of David on a white background. This is the symbol used in Israel by the Magen David Adom, the Jewish Red Cross affiliate. Magen David Adom is a member of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and their use of this symbol is allowed and protected under international treaty.

The protection afforded the symbol of the Magen David Adom by international treaty and by national laws is at a much higher level than simple copyright or trademark. By treaty, the symbol of the Magen David Adom has the same protection as the symbols of the Red Cross, of the Red Crescent, and of the Red Crystal. We believe that the symbol of the Magen David Adom should be protected to the same extent as the symbols of the Red Cross, the Red Crescent, and the Red Crystal are protected. Thus, at this time, we are adding to the list of restricted charges the Magen David Adom, "A single gules Star of David on any argent background or in any way that could be displayed on an argent background (such as a fieldless badge)". The use of multiple gules Stars of David may be returned on a case-by-case basis if their placement or usage appears too evocative of the symbol of the Magen David Adom.
