The June Laurel meeting is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2000, and will consider the letters of intent from February.
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, etc.) have not yet been met.
REMINDER: Until the packet containing the paperwork is received, the letter may not be scheduled.
The deadline for applying for Morsulus has passed, and I am pleased to announce that the next Morsulus herald will be Master Herveus d'Ormonde. He will be starting in April.
I am now accepting bids for Known World Heraldic Symposium for 2001. I've enclosed an article written by Irene Schmetterling on what makes a good bid for a heraldic symposium. Any group who wishes to host the 2001 symposium should mail bids to Laurel and the other members of the College of Arms by May 15, 2000. This allows discussion of the bids before the choice is made and announced at the 2000 KWHS in Houston.
