Following is the text from an event announcement for the Westgate Winter
Collegium - Heraldic and Scribal Syposium, scheduled Feb 20-21, 1999.    I
am still looking for 12 or more teachers to fill our slate of classes.  If
you have a class (beginning, intermediate or advanced) in the
Heraldic/Scribal or related areas and you are willing to teach please let
me know ASAP, so I can include you in the February BlackStar.   This
Symposium is for you, so please help us make it a success by sharing your
knowledge.   I look forward to hearing from some of you.  Many thanks,
Baroness Hillary Rose Greenslade, Seneschal - Westgate.
