[Ansteorra] Vigils for White Scarves

Interesting topic... 

Not every queen works the same with her circle, but I remember several
Dons counseling me to offer Don Llewelyn the opportunity for a vigil. 
I'm a sucker for traditions. :)  Of course ECID (every crown is
different) and they don't all listen to the same advisors.

Yes, the White Scarf "ranks" the same as a Centurion as far as the OP
is concerned, but the Order of the White Scarf has existed far longer
(15 yrs?) and is honored in this kingdom as the pinnacle of achievement
in the rapier community.  In my experience, we have often respected our
Dons by allowing them many of the small honors reserved for peerages -
such as having peers speak for them during the award ceremony, etc..  I
know I've seen that done more than a few times.

Of course, we also elevated Don Timothy, so his ceremony (held in the
North) could be contributing to the confusion.  There was only one
event between Yule, where we offered him the Scarf - and our stepping
down.  I can't remember if we decided or he decided that the elevation
would happen there at Yule Revel, but his family and friends were all
present, and he was impeccably dressed, so I'm thinking (I'm hoping) he
didn't mind. ;)
