COURT CALENDAR 2018

THE COMPANY OF WATERMEN AND LIGHTERMEN
COURT CALENDAR 2018
Freemen have requested early notice be given of Company Events for the coming calendar year.
This has not been done before as the events straddle more than one Masters’ year.
 However, as an experiment below are the events fixed until the end of the Company’s year in July,
and provisional dates for the remainder of 2018.
The provisional dates may need to change and will be confirmed in July 2018. There is a new coding system:
Code:
M Annual Events attended by Master in his official capacity
C For attention of Court Members
F For attention of Craft Owning Freemen
A For attention of All Freemen including Journeymen Freemen
L For attention of All Freemen’s Ladies including Journeymen Freemen.
P Public event, anyone welcome
