This year was the first year that I headed up heraldry at Triumph, and
I must say that while I did very little voice heraldry myself, I found
out first hand how hard heralds-in-charge have to work in order to
stay on top of things. However, all of my efforts would have been for
nothing if it had not been for the people who stepped up and answered
my request for help.
HL Adalia VonderBerg was an invaluable help with List heralding Friday
night and Satruday.
Alisa Blackdragon bravely offered to herald for the first time on
Saturday, and by all accounts acquitted herself well working with
HE Gunhildia Amberstar jumped in and helped cry the list as well
during the day, giving much needed breaks to others.
His Excelency Donnchadh stepped up and acted as court herald for HRH
Annelyse of Midrealm.
Marcus Crawford and Margaret Gruffydd worked throughout the day

Oh, did I mention that JP did a Spectacular job heralding the
Newcomers tournament on Sunday as well. *I'm going to have to make
sure to add him to my list of capable heralds.*
I know that I missed a few other names, and if anyone knows of someone
not mentioned above, please feel free to thank them for me, or just
e-mail me with a "you forgot this person" missive.
Thanks again to everyone who helped.
