You're right the Ladies of Arkham did a wonderful job on those tassels.  I would have to recommend that instead of trying to get them to the people who held the rankings when they were orginally made that those that can be given out to current rank holders should be done.  I'm 2600 miles away but I can e-mail the Autocrats of AAA Next July and see if it can be worked into the tourney for the AAA Archery Champion.  (AAA = Ansteorra Argent Anniversary.  AKA Ansteorra's 25th year as a kingdom.)  Ofcourse someone actually in kingdom could probably coordinate better.  ;)

  On behalf of the good Ladies of House Arkham I would
  defend their forlorn effort as not only having taken the 
  initiative but action as well to create tassels not just for 
  the archers of their own household but every archer 
  holding a ranking within the royal rounds of the kingdom.  
  They did the research, gathered and bought the materials & 
  assembled tassels over several weekends and presented 
  these finished archer's tassels to the keeper of the royal 
  rounds for distribution.

  They did this courtesy for our archers to promote a sense 
  of personal pride in being Ansteorran archers with the 
  addition of an accessory to display upon personal costume 
  to identify themselves as archers & note their skill.  
  Unfortunately these tassels have never been seen again!

  This was very disappointing not only for the Ladies whom 
  went to the time, effort, and expense to make these icons
  but for those archers who were expecting to receive their 
  archer's tassel as well, the offering was no secret.  

  No one more than myself understands that "things happen" 
  and I know we're all very busy but it has been a couple of 
  years now since said archer's tassels were delivered, could our 
  keepers of the royal rounds possibly locate whatever garage 
  or closet these archers tassels came to rest within and get 
  them distributed to the kingdom's participating royal round 
  archers, please?

  It has been so long that many archers's rankings have changed 
  but I would send them out anyway.  Those archer's may pass 
  the tassel down to their fellow archers or use it as a pattern 
  to remake themselves a correct one.

  I would further suggest the tassels be passed to our archer's 
  local branch archery marshal through the regional archery 
  marshals for distribution.  After all it is to both their 
  benefit and that of the kingdom to promote archery within 
  their prospective regions & local branches.

  So, to you keepers of the royal rounds both past & present, 
  let's please take some initiative and get this ball rolling again, 
  It's laid in your court far to long guys!

  Pardon my boot,
