Apologies for not being more specific on the "unofficial" part...
What I meant (and should have said) was "unofficial announcements
about the Official Archery Schedule, not otherwise included in the
Official Heraldic Cry (or whatever it's called), direct from the
Marshal(s) in Charge of the next day's shoot(s)". Or even the shoot
(s) planned for that same day.
In other words, those doing the announcing will be reading from a
prepared "script", just like the official Pennsic Heralds do; if it
turns out the information is inaccurate, then the inaccuracy will
have started with the MiC(s), or whomever prepares the "script".
It'll help to head off the dreaded "Well, this is what I heard..."
