Official or not, this isn't a question of what is *required* in an  
announcement. Cuan mac Niall's comments are a good indication of  
something that should be in every event announcement. Other phrases  
like "same site as last year" without further directions are also  
incomplete. Even for folks who have been here for a while, do you  
have and can you locate all your BlackStars from last year?

SCA maps are another thing which I've seen vary from impossible, to  
just poor, to quite good over the years I have been in the SCA.

I have this rather small file in the Florilegium SCA-EVENT-PLANNING  
section, but I would love to have more articles on writing good SCA  
event announcements and/or directions/maps.
