Don Eric Brehattin and Dona Teresa Gabriela de Montoya y Sevilla

Calling all Heralds, Pursuivants, and gentles interested in the Heraldic Arts! 
 This year's Known World Heraldic Symposium will be held in the Principality 
of Aethelmearc, in the industrious Barony of Thescorre (Rochester, NY), which 
is currently in the Kingdom of the East.   The dates are June 20-22, 1997 and 
the site is the MarketPlace Inn, 800 Jefferson Road, Rochester, NY, 14623.  
Don Eric Brehattin and Doqa Teresa Gabriela de Montoya y Sevilla are the 
Autocrats. Four tracks of six classes will be offered on all aspects of the 
heraldic arts.  These will appeal to the newly rostered pursuivant, the very 
senior herald, or anyone interested in learning more about the heraldic arts.  
As an added bonus, a track of Master Classes in the scribal arts will be 
offered for those interested in studying calligraphy and illumination from 
some of the best scribes in the East.  

Hotel check in and registration can take place at your convenience.  The Troll 
will officially open at 5:00 p.m. Friday evening.  A reception will be held 
that evening, with hors d'oeuvres served between 7-8:30.  A cash bar is 
available in the hotel's restaurant/brew pub, The Shannon Pub, which serves 
some of the finest home-brewed beers, ales and lagers this side of Master 
Corwin of Darkwater's manors!  

There are plenty of eating establishments in close proximity to the hotel, 
ranging from fast food to fine dining.  Free shuttle service from the 
Rochester International Airport to the MarketPlace Inn is available.  Our 
community is very comfortable seeing Society members in garb, and the hotel is 
very excited about our bringing a Medieval flair to their establishment for 
the weekend.  

Classes will begin on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.  Three sessions will be 
held in the morning, and three sessions in the afternoon, with a 90 minute 
break for lunch.  Lunch is not included in the cost of the event.  The feast 
will start at 7:30 p.m.  It will consist of chicken tortellini soup 
(vegetarian alternative available with prior arrangement), salat of greens, 
homemade breads,  and your choice of one of the following:  Irish Lamb Stew, 
Chicken and Mushroom Pie, Marinated Beef Tips with vegetables and rice, 
Broiled Haddock, or a Vegetarian Pasta entree.  A sotelty of cakes of carrots 
or that New World treat, chocolate, will conclude the meal with kaffee or tea. 
 There will be a cash bar in the feast hall.  We will have dancing in the hall 
after the feast, or you may wish to go out to the Shannon Pub and enjoy the 
live performances of Irish/Celtic music.

On Sunday morning Mistress Jaelle of Armida, Laurel Queen of Arms, will hold 
the traditional "Road Show" Laurel meeting.  All are welcome to attend.  The
