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

* From Laurel: KWHSS 2016 Bids Requested

For those considering bidding on the 2016 Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium, the deadline to have your bid entered into OSCAR is April 30, 2015. This will give the College of Arms time for consideration so that we can announce the bid's award at the 2015 KWHSS in the Canton of Eoforwic, Ealdormere, on June 26-28 at the Road Show.

Please note that, due to the timing of SCA 50th Year Celebration and Pennsic War, we request that bids avoid bidding for the time period surrounding those events, including the traditional times of year for KWHSS. Because a large amount of people will want to attend 50YC, and a large portion of senior heralds attend Pennsic, scheduling for these times could produce attendance issues for the Symposium. All other times on the calendar are certainly open for discussion. We expect to return to the traditional time of year in 2017.

Please remember that bids posted to OSCAR are publicly readable. Because of this, any personal information, such as legal names, addresses, phone numbers, and email, should not be included in these bids without signed written permission. Such information as is necessary for the entire College of Arms to see should be posted as a comment after the bid is finalized; such information as is necessary for the Sovereigns only to see should be included as a Sovereign Note.

Please send a copy of the full unredacted bid to Laurel at laurel@heraldry.sca.org.

As a reminder, there is a KWHSS domain and web hosting space available on the SCA's servers. Please do not register a new domain.

Please see http://heraldry.sca.org/kwhss/ or contact Laurel if you have any questions.
