|The Barony of the Bridge and the College of Arms welcomes one and all to the Known World Heralds and Scribes Symposium to be held June 22-24 at the Radisson Airport Hotel in Warwick, Rhode Island.
This will be an excellent opportunity for heralds and scribes of all skill levels to come and share their knowledge or exchange ideas with other heralds and scribes.
A tentative schedule of events for the weekend is:
Friday night: 7-Midnight Meet and Greet in one of the hotel meeting rooms. Come see who is here and catch up with old friends!
Saturday -Daytime: We will have several rooms available for classes from 9AM to 5PM on Saturday. There are board rooms with conference tables and larger meeting rooms the will be set in different configurations. When submitting a class to the class coordinator, please let them know what size class you are willing to teach (i.e. a gold leafing class may be limited to 12 due to the hands on nature of the class where another class may not be limited as it is a presentation). Due to extremely high A/V rental rates at the hotel, please contact the autocrat or class coordinator if you have any special A/V needs for your class.
Saturday Evening: We have a thriving dance community here in this part of the East Kingdom. Dance mistress Lady Jane Milford will lead dances for a ball in one of the rooms Saturday night. We will offer a Ball only admission rate of $5 from 5-8PM for any one wishing to just come and dance.
Sunday Morning: The Laurel Road Show. At this meeting, Laurel, Wreath and Pelican will review current submissions and lead discussions of interest to the College of Arms.
Other tentative events planned for the weekend include a possible trip to the RISD Museum or a Lovecraft Walking Tour of Providence (additional charges may apply).
There is no feast planned for the event but there is a restaurant on site, as well as several within walking distance or a short drive. There are a variety of dining options from fast food to casual dining to full service restaurants.
