Aurelia Gabriana, Award of the Scarlet Banner 2012

Today the Wolf recognizes the champion archer
And today the populace cheers her skill.
Barons and Ladies sing her praise;
Led by the bow, in lands close and far.
For among us there is
A yeoman worthy of a banner red.

So, see, read, hear, know and understand by these presents that We, Roak and Elizabeth, King and Queen of these Trillium lands of Ealdormere, do wish to recognize the skill in archery which Aurelia has displayed, specifically in shooting at the range on her own lands, on that of the Canton of Petrea Thule, and for being named one of our kingdom’s five representatives on the Archery Champions team at the Pennsic War. For this do We now commend her]and bestow upon her Our Award of the Scarlet Banner and the right to bear the badge of the award. Done while sitting upon Our thrones in Our [group hosting event] at [event] this [day] day of [month], anno societatis [year], in testimony whereof We have set Our hands and seal.
