For those who made use of the consulting tables at Pennsic, please be aware that due to the number of submissions received, it may not be possible for the consulting heralds to keep you updated on the progress of your names and devices. Please let me know if you submitted something while there, in case you have questions about where it is in the process or in the event that the College has questions or needs to request a change to your paperwork.

In service,

Ragna Grímólfsdóttir
