Lara Baker-Olin Greetings all, August 2-4, 2002, the Barony of Three Mountains (Portland, Oregon) will be holding an event focused on the tournament and the tournament fighter. It will be an event with classes for those interested in furthering their fighting skills and those interested in supporting one of the central activities of the SCA. To this end, we would like to include a track of classes that focus on heraldry as it pertains the armored combatant and the tournament. We would like to include classes on Field Heraldry, and one on the importance Heraldic Display at a minimum, but would welcome suggestions for other heraldry classes that fit the event focus. Perhaps one called, “What every fighter should know about Heraldry”… ? If you would like to instruct on one of these topics, please contact me at as soon as possible.
