The time has come to don a slightly different hat. In July, His Grace JoeAngus will step down at the Chair of the Lilies War Committee. I have the distinct privilege of stepping up as his successor. One of my first duties will be leading the committee in selecting the bid for Lilies War 31 (2017). Therefore, I am putting out the call for bids. This year the deadline is June 25, the first Saturday after Lilies War. Bids will be discussed at the Committee Meeting at Coronation on July 9, in the Barony of Coeur d'Ennui.
