RE: [AnTirYAC] Re: device
I am not sure what you are agreeing with? I don’t think Ursula is saying that YAC participant badges need or ought to be like a marshallate badge. I would think that the participant badges should have their own feel -- separate from the marshallate. But between the age divisions, I do think some similarity is desirable. As to the position of the devices -- is that something that is decided by the contest, or are we trying not to have a contest?
Maybe we can approach this as a youth collaborative effort where the kids first select divisions or not, then what sort of divisions, then colors, then metals, etc. and so forth ending up deciding the position of the animal. In this plan we would have a herald (we can ask the Black Lion for a designee) guide the kids through the proper choices available. This way the kids learn from a herald. It’s not a contest then, but would be a real nice introduction to heraldry to the kids. We can use this group’s polling function to see what the kids want.
I agree, we should try to keep the Marshallate device as the base. Maybe we can go with the Yaks head for the Marshals, and then each different animal that represents the age groups to represent the combatants? But what position do we want them in? Here are the heraldic choices:
Passant = Standing all fours, one fore leg raised
Statant = Standing all fours
Salient = Standing hind legs, fore legs raised
Rampant = Standing hind legs, one fore leg raised, on fore leg lowered
Sejant = Sitting
Sejant Erect = Sitting with fore legs raised
Couchant = reclining head up
Dormant = reclining head down
Demi- = Front half
Default Profile is looking to the left
Guardant = Looking forward
Regardant = head is facing to the right (or behind the animal)
Head Caboshed = Head only with no part of the neck visible
Head Couped = Head and neck cut off in a straight line
Head Erased = Head and Neck ripped off with jagged edges

I haven't ignored you, Jean-Pierre, :-)
I've been looking for a nice Yak head to work with, and I sent a couple of examples to Sebastiaen, because he is the graphic artist and I am not. I don't have the tools or drawing skill to produce a really good looking Yak's head. OK, maybe I could do a nice Yak head in embroidery, but that really won't help us here...
I think if we are staying with the general marshallate form, then the Yak head over the crossed swords makes a lot of sense. Other than changing the animal, what else could we do without leaving the general marshallate form? I think we should stay close to the rest of the marshallate devices, to show our relationship with them. Unless someone has a stunning great idea, we may have the basics of the device right here, now, and we just need to sort out the details.
I haven't submitted a device before, so I don't know all of the process.
Also, how are we going to get all the kids to vote? I thought we were just going to vote on it here. It would be easy to set up a database or poll in the group functions, and set a vote time for the list. Getting the kids voting for it would be good, but with so many branch YAC programs just getting started, I'd guess few kids would actually be voting.

> Well, the last message about the Device I had made the suggestion that others of any age submit ideas, and then Hallgrim suggested having the Youth Combatants voting on them. So far to date, I believe my suggestion is the only one submitted. So either everyone else just can not think of any other devices, or my suggestion was so good no one else wanted to think of another idea, or everyone missed my last email and did not realize they where supposed to be trying to come up with other ideas. I say we give one more week for someone to sound off with an idea, then vote on the device to accept as is, accept it with some editting, or scrap it and look for another idea. And I agree with Hallgrim, we defiitly need to involve the Youth Combatants in this vote, take it to your practices, show it to your kids, etc. and get their opinions.
