Isles Car Decals. Looking at selling these as a fundraiser for the Shire. Lodovico is already in contact with the person who makes the Kingdom ones, and there are several choices for artwork.  More details should be available soon, but if you’re interested in purchasing a decal for about $5, let Lodovico know so that he can determine how many to order.Kingdom Event Bids. There was a lot of discussion about which two (or more) 2015 Kingdom events Isles should bid for.  The leading contenders were Spring or Fall Crown/Privy Council and Spring or Fall Festival of the Rose.  Lodovico will continue the discussion on the list for another week or so before putting together the final bids.
