In the past
some Events of the Knighthood World were cancelled without “Early Warning”. These “Too Late to React” incoming information left us with financial damages due to not
refundable flight tickets, hotel bookings, car rentals, etc.
consequence, our Order will not longer consider participating to any event until it received an Official Invitation. In addition, this
Invitation must reach us "In due time”, being it by Email or by regular Postal services, confirming that the
event will indeed take place as planned.
By “In due Time” we understand :
For Inland Events : at least 3 weeks prior event
Events : and/or Worldwide Events at least 7 Weeks prior event notice.
To avoid rumours and misinterpretations
all Invitations, to participate at any Knighthood Event,
must be emitted officially from the Inviting authority of the Order and addressed, under penalty of nullity, to either :
Frater Robert : firstname.lastname@example.org
Frater Heiko : Bels-Perleberg@t-online
IN RED = LATE ARRIVAL. Here we have a collision of 2 or more events on the same day. The invitation which has
reached us later is marked in Pink
To a LATE ARRIVAL event, the Ordo Balliolensis will have difficulties to send a delegation. In this case, organisators should not blame us, for they have been informed long in advance, on
our "Attending Priorities" system based on "First come, First served" !
ATTENTION. Orders informing us about their events MUST give us
the EXACT DATE of the event. Places of the
occurrences are only of secondary importance ! No incoming priorities without precise dates * !
* Exception: Orders organising their events yearly at about the same time, are automatically
reported and ranked with the Highest Priority.
In consequence, other Orders must choose another date or be confronted with a minimum participation from our Order

FOR OTHER ORDERS
WHICH MAY BE CONCERNED
Posted 26 March 2017. Order X is imaginary and serves as an exemple !
Our Order has an average of 1 Investiture every 4 years.
Order X has one Investiture every year.
Both distances to cover are about 1.200km (up/down).
Our Order participated at the Order X last 4 Investitures with 5 to 6
Order X. may plan to participate at our next Investiture with 2 people.
Our Order presence at Order X Investitures counted some 20 to 24 people, who covered a total
distance of 4.800km.
Order X, if it stays on course, will be present, at our Investiture, with 2 people who will cover a distance of 1.200km.
Needles to mention that this is not a Win/Win situation.
The situation is unfair and sounds much like a financial
Anyway, the Ordo Balliolensis do not accept any longer this kind of attitude, all the more so as it emanates from
the Traditional Chivalry that ought to be exemplary !
We are very sorry to be forced to teach such elementary lessons to Brother Order
In short, we will honor every invitation if the
Win/Win situation is respected.
