Greetings all!

I'm putting out one final call for volunteers to come work at Heralds Point at Pennsic this year. We're looking for non-heralds as well as heralds.

First off, we are looking for heralds of ALL levels and talents.

If you're interested in consulting, we always have more submitters than we know what to do with. New to consulting? No problem. We've got lots of knowledgeable heralds who can help you out if you get stuck. And if you only like working on names or armory, we can set you up to work on only that type of submissions!

If your strength is conflict checking (but not working with submitters), we'd love to get you to help us double-check our work. And, well... we always need good paper pushers!

If you're better at heraldic art, we've got a whole tent dedicated to our artists. For artists who don't have much training in the heraldic style, we are happy to give pointers. Or you can just start off by inking other artists' pencil drawings.

Not a heraldry person? Not a big book heraldry person? Want to help anyway? We need volunteers to greet people as they come in and help organize the waiting line. And we need more volunteers to help check folks out after they've finished their submissions. (You do need to be a warranted herald or exchequer to do that job, though.) And we almost _always_ have coloring that needs to be finished (even at 11 at night!).

If you're interested in helping out, please stop by. We'll have a sign up sheet where you can sign up for blocks of time that are convenient to your schedule. Or, if you find yourself with free time you weren't expecting, you can just stop by and see if we need help at the moment.

Heralds Point opens the first Wednesday of War and is open every day until the last Friday. There will be people doing set up and organization in the tent during the day on both Monday and Tuesday of the first week. Feel free to stop by, introduce yourself, get to know us, and ask any questions or concerns you have about working there.

I hope you'll consider volunteering with us at War this year. I look forward to seeing you there!
