The event will be held in Springfield, MA, and full event details can be found online at the East Kingdom Website.
I am pleased to invite you to attend KWHSS in the canton of Eoforwic (Toronto, ON, Canada) in the Kingdom of Ealdormere June 26-28, 2015.
The website and registration is now live! Please click here to visit the KWHSS 2015 Website.
We would also like to extend an invitation to all heralds and scribes to teach at the symposium. The class proposal form is now live on the website as well.
You may also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more info or to propose a class.
Over the years, there has been an excellent relationship between our two kingdoms, and we are very much hoping that many of our friends will make the trip to teach, share and learn. We are very much hoping to see many of you this coming June!

Lady Lilie Dubh recently shared with us that two NY groups will be trying a new event concept early next year: a two-part Schola.
The Canton of Lions End and the Barony of An Dubhaigheann were both contemplating having scholas over this coming winter. As the groups are neighbors, representatives consulted with each other and decided to collaborate.
The Lions End event, Lions in Winter, is scheduled for February 21, 2015, will be part one. Part two will be the Spring Schola in An Dubhaigheann on March 21, 2015. Some classes will start in Lions End and finish in An Dubhaigheann, and projects needing help or completion can be worked on at both events and in between.
However if you can’t attend both events, don’t be deterred from attending whichever you can. There will be single session classes which begin at the An Dubhaigheann event as well as continuations of those started at Lions End.
The autocrats of both events are eager to hear from anyone who would like to teach classes which take advantage of this longer format; their contact information can be found in the event announcements:
In addition to classes, Lions End will be holding an Arts and Sciences Competition, and An Dubhaigheann will be selecting Bardic and A&S Champions, and offering a garb sale.
The Province of Malagentia recently announced the schedule of classes for the Heavy List University event, being held this Saturday, April 12th in Eliot, Maine. Full details (including class times, event directions, lunch information, event location, and cost) can be found in the official East Kingdom announcement, or on the Malagentian website.
Classes include ‘Intermediate Sword and Shield’ (taught by Duke Kenric aet Eastseaxe), ‘Historiacal Polearm techniques’ (taught by Duke Vissevald Selkirkson), ‘Movement, Measure and Power in Armored Combat’ (taught by Duke Lucan von Drakenkalue), ‘Two Sword’ (taught by Master Julien de la Pointe), as well as classes taught by Sir Ankara Lig Niki, Syr Kyppyn Kirkcaldy, Baron Matthew Moraveous Avdenmork, Lord Tiernana, and Lord William Ravenhair. The day will also include a demonstration of historical cut and thrust techniques.
Join the Barony of Carolingia (northeastern Massachusetts) for a day full of activities for all ages on May 3rd. Spend the day trying out all the Society has to offer for our younger members, from youth combat to classes on all manners of arts and sciences, from dancing and music to thrown weapons. There will be equestrian activities, youth fencing, archery, and much more.
Come meet other parents with children around your child’s age with parent and child meet and greets, bring the garb your children have outgrown to swap with other parents, and enjoy a sumptious dayboard of kid-friendly treats prepared by Ulf and Justinius, under the supervision of Fergus Redmeade.
Teens and Tweens! Come learn to make cheese, help out in the kitchen, or work gate. Have a skill you know how to do? Come teach it to younger kids. Bring the Arts and Sciences project you are working on to display, learn a new skill in one of our classes or pick up a new martial art.
If you would like to teach a class, please contact Baroness Leonete. You do not need a background check or specific experience teaching children in order to teach, and we are happy to help you adapt your class for the younger set. We are especially looking for those under 18 willing to teach.
Feel free to crosspost this announcement
Yours in Service,
Baroness Leonete D’Angely

The new Shire of Avonmore in the Crown Principality of Tir Mara announces their first event, to be held Nov. 16 in Saint Marie, NB…
As it is known that the Shire of Avonmore (being a wild and newly settled land) is filled with outlaws, brigands, and highwaymen and even its coastal waters are filled with pirates, the Foresters have come to civilize the region. Loyal to the Crown of the East and to its landed nobility, the Foresters patrol the wild green woods where men in heavy armor fear to tread. No more shall travelers between the Shire of Lyndhaven and the Barony of Ruantallan come to harm in the dark forests of Avonmore as the foresters now protect the way.
The Foresters Fall feast and Faire is the year end celebration of the harvest and the hunt, a day of games, fellowship and feasting! Continue reading
The following announcement comes from the Elmet Herald, the East Kingdom’s Heraldic Education Deputy.
Greetings from Yehuda ben Moshe, Elmet Herald, the East Kingdom heraldic education deputy.
I will be running the next East Kingdom Herald University (EKHU) class next week.

Before taking this class, you should either have watched the video for Armory 101 or have a good understanding of basic armorial terminology. You should also be able to understand blazon. If you have previously taken my “So you want to be a (book) herald? Part II – Armory” class, most of the material in this class was covered in that one, although a few topics are expanded.
