If you come to a herald's warranting class, we do have a section on court
heraldry. Also, several heralds have taught this subject at length and may be
contacted for information.

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.
