These awards in my experience are a strictly local matter. I think they
serve a very useful purpose in helping to recognize and foster peoples good
work. The need to run them through the heralds for conflict seems a very
reasonable limitation, otherwise I would think that they are strictly a
matter between the local Baron/ess and their populace. Some groups might
need more encouragement than others. I also think that these awards should
not be announced in any SCA court outside of the Barony as the awards hold
no precedence outside of the Barony.

This is like House Wolfstars Silver Wolf, it should be and is a matter
strictly between the members of the household. The recognition should not
be announced in any SCA court as the awards are not sanction by the SCA.
