ARCH - Awards ceremony baron at
Thu Nov 9 12:39:09 PST 2000

Frankly, I don't see a problem with giving the tassles 
out at Coronation, in the closing court of the outgoing 
king & queen (if they're amenable), as long as it 
doesn't take too long.  I agree with Gilli that enough 
people in the kingdom do archery that it would be worth 
a couple of minutes in court.

That said, if another plan prevails, I'd be happy to be 
involved in giving out some tassels in my baronial
