I haven't heard from anybody willing to serve as a field herald for  
the cut-and-thrust tournament scheduled to take place between 11:00  
a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at Bryn Gwlad's upcoming Candlemas event <http:// 
candlemas2010.swordworks.org/>.  Time is short.  We really need some  
folks to call the bouts and announce the winners.  Please volunteer  
if you're able.  If you're willing to help but can't cover the entire  
tournament, let me know.  If we need to work the heralds in shifts,  
we can.

If you've never heralded a field before, that's no reason not to step  
up, especially if you've ever been in a play, sung in public, or  
participated in any other activity that required you to make your  
voice "big".  You can read an overview of how it works at <http:// 
www.therotunda.net/heraldry/field-1.html>, and I will be happy to  
connect you with someone who can answer any questions you may have.

This would be an especially good opportunity for someone who's  
interested in rapier fighting, but who isn't yet authorized, to get  
close to the action.
