The Herald's Pointe is to provide an opportunity to meet with heralds without the distractions of other events. No need to rush between tournament bouts, etc. - just the heralds and you.
This is an annual gathering of heralds to provide SCA members with the expertise of the College of Heralds to choose a period name and device that do not conflict with others in the SCA or the historical /current Royal families/ persons/ groups/ organizations (i.e. the British Royal Family, Knights Of the Empire, Margaret Thatcher). Instruction is given for the submission process - documentation needed, forms, timeframe, costs. Get your name and device evaluated and paperwork prepared for submission to the SCA College of Heralds. If you are a new herald, want to become a herald or interested in heraldry, here is an opportunity to learn about heraldry in the Middle Kingdom.
The Scribal Collegium is a chance to learn how to illuminate or put those pretty pictures/designs on paper. There will be assistance in learning the basics of Calligraphy as well. The Scribal Collegium will have instruction for those who wish/need it, and a opportunity for the experienced to produce illuminated scrolls for gifting to Kingdom for awards.
A&S this year is Show Off! Show off pieces with your own, your group, or your household heraldry. Bring in samples of your calligraphy and/or illumination.
