Dankyn and Herr Detlef gave some good points on doing court heraldry, both in the limelight and behind the scenes.
I already have some good files in the HERALDRY section of the Florilegium on Field Heraldry and Voice Heraldry in general, but I would love to have some articles on how to present a good court or what needs to be done to prepare for a good court. It would be nice if it covered from small courts of a visiting baron to those of Royalty to perhaps the Grand Courts at Pennsic and Gulf Wars.
The Grand Court at Gulf Wars is *not* the time to drone on and on with AoAs and lower level awards as was done by a Meridian Crown at Gulf Wars some year ago. :-(
