The Barony received recognition from the Laurel Principal Queen of Arms at the July 2018 SCA Board of Directors Meeting. Excerpted from her report:

I would like to commend Alaric MacConnal, Raven Whiteheart, and the rest of the staff of this year's Known World Heraldic Symposium, held in Pittsburgh, PA, June 8-10. It was a great time and well attended. You guys set a high bar for others to match.
