Since it looks like no one has forwarded this message to ANSTHRLD yet, 
here it is.

If anyone is planning on going to Pennsic, please do drop by and work a 
shift if you can.  We always need lots of help and it's a great forum to 
learn in.  If you are a newer herald, just tell the folks at Heralds' 
Point and we will be glad to pair you with a more experienced herald.

No matter your skills, we need the help.  There is usually lots of 
coloring to do in the afternoon and evenings.  There is consultation 
throughout the day (see schedule below).  And, of course, there are the 
events Marie notes below including the Known World Heralds Party.  If 
you want to meet some of the folks mentioned in old LoIs and old LoARs, 
this is the place to go since many of them drop by.  And there are 
always lots of great heralds to meet from other Kingdoms and lots of 
great food!

(still trying to figure out which days she will be at Pennsic...)

Subject: Heralds Point at Pennsic wants YOU!

Pennsic 40 is extra large and therefore closer than it appears ...
start planning now!

We're expecting a whole lot of submitters this year, and that means we
need a whole lot of heralds, artists, marker-wielders, onomasts,
exchequers, armorists, greeters, paper pushers,
waiting-submitter-entertainers ... and that means you!   We need
experienced heralds and non-experienced heralds and non-heralds all,
so please consider giving us a few hours of your time.

We'll be open for the same hours as last year: 1-5pm Wednesday and
Thursday the first week, 11am-5pm Friday to Friday (Monday is special
- Road show in the morning, then 2-8pm).  We're happy to have folks
volunteering just a few hours, just a couple days, or even most of the
days.  (Just not -every- day. Enjoy some Pennsic, too.)

Perks for volunteering include:
- freezy pops from the kind folks with Morale!
- picking the brains of some of the best heralds in the SCA
- daily ice cream, courtesy of Laurel Queen of Arms
- making submitters happy
- not having to do it all yourself (just want to do names? ok! just
want to do armory? ok! just want to color? ok!)
- being in the shade during the hot parts of the day
- nice cold ice water in the afternoon (thanks to the Morale team)
- hot tea or coffee in the morning (thanks to the folks who bring
coffee/tea makers)
- did we mention the opportunity to cram your head full of heraldic 

.... but wait, there's more!  We'll be hosting three special events this 

The Known World Heralds Party will be Sunday, August 7th from 8pm to
10pm (or whenever people wind down).  There will be snacks and heralds
- what more could you want?

The Laurel Road Show will be Monday, August 8th from 9am to Noon.
Come see hot, live, heraldic decisions being made!

The Heraldic Rules Roundtable will be Wednesday, August 10th from 9am
to 11am.  Come listen to me natter on about the impending changes to
the Rules for Submission*.  Feedback and opinions welcome, no heraldic
experience needful.  There will be a second Roundtable on this topic
over in the A&S Tents for those who find mornings abhorrent.

Please, come volunteer at Heralds Point this year!  We told Morale
that we'll need more freezy pops this year - they get mad if we're
wrong, so please help!

Also, please do pass this on to other lists, especially heraldry and
exchequery lists.

* Yes, there will be a draft on OSCAR by then or I will EAT A HAT.
