Their Royal Majesties King Omega V and Queen Etheldreda IV held Court at the Dinner at the Kasbah, in the Barony of Ruantallan on June 20. The Gazette thanks Reporting Herald Baron Ernst Nuss von Kitzingen and additional Court Herald Lady Maria von Ossenheim, for providing the following list of business conducted. Here is the Unofficial Court Report. (Additional items of business supplied by Mistress Bess Darnley)
The Court opened with Baron Guthfrith and Baroness Isobel of Ruantallan swearing fealty to the Crown, after which they opened a brief court to award new-comers tokens to the populace in attendance for whom this was a first event or a first visit.
Then began the business of the Royal Court. First to be called in was Augustine the Treacherous who, after explaining how he received this descriptor, was awarded a Tyger’s Cub. Scroll: Illumination by Laurentia of Caledonia, Calligraphy by Nest verch Tangwistel.
The children in attendance were then summoned into court and a game of chase Lord Spurius with the toys ensued. He lead them on a merry chase but soon he was subdued and toys were received by all the young people who ran him down.
Next called was Sir Gareth Grey de Wilton who swore fealty to the Crown. Syr Yesungge Altan was then presented with his peerage coat, not having received this item of regalia upon his elevation in 2007.
The following people were called and the awards bestowed in absentia, to be given out by the Baron and Baroness of Ruantallan at their next court:

Unto all Gentles of the Knowne World, whatsoever their title may be, does Mistress Fia Kareman send greetings.
It is with excitement that I announce that a Chirurgeons Guild has been established, and as of today, is considered active.
Several months ago, a small group of dedicated individuals came together to continue the tradition of the Chirurgeons and to provide first aid for those that request it at events held by the SCA. We have created a Handbook of Rules and Regulations of the Chirurgeons Guild, established a Googlegroups for discussion, set up a basic website, and an email for questions.
Most importantly, we are starting to follow these Rules and call ourselves a Guild, and act as such, at any event going forward. We may have a few growing pains, but we are eager to help and serve as we have always done.
Please feel free to use the links below to join the Guild, ask questions, provide suggestions, and read the Rules and Regulations as they currently stand. We look forward to your participation, input, and support into growing our Guild.
We welcome all questions, comments, and suggestions, as long as they remain civil. We want to make this the best that it can be moving forward, and hope that we have your support in doing so.

July 14, 2015 Correction: Practices/tryouts for the Archery Champions Teams will be held Saturday, Sunday and Monday, from 5pm to 7pm — not on Tuesday.
Reported by Baroness Ygraine of Kellswood
Shoot the War Points for the East and our Midrealm allies, shoot for the fun of it, or both! There will be plenty of opportunities again this year. Target archery accounts for 7 War Points — 1 for the Archery Champions Team competition, and 2 each for the 3 traditional populace shoots. The populace results will be announced on Friday.
Range set-up takes place on Monday, July 27, starting at 9am, and assistance is very welcome.
The Archery Ranges are officially open from 9am to 5pm beginning Sunday, August 2.
Before August 1, and outside of the official hours, a range can be open if there is a Warranted Target Archery Marshal willing to run the line at a range. (You may bring your own Warranted Target Archery Marshal with you.)
Equipment must be inspected (once) with each archer who will be using it before it can be used on any range.
Archery Marshal meetings will be held Friday, July 31 at 4pm, and Sunday, August 2 at 4pm. Marshals are required to attend one of these meetings, and to serve two shifts on the range.
The Saint Sebastian Shoot, sponsored by the Kingdom of Atlantia, will be Saturday, August 1, 10am to 5pm.
The 3 Populace War Point shoots will be similar to the last few years, but with a Game of Thrones theme: A 100-yard Castle Turret with a guard inside and a moat and monster at about 50 yards; a timed Castle Window shoot at approximately 30 yards; and a Warrior shoot at the archer’s choice of distances from 15 yards to 55 yards. Archers may shoot up to 5 times at each of the 3 shoots, on any day or combination of days. No archer may shoot more than 5 times at each of the ranges.
Populace War Point Shooting is offered on these days:
Archery Champions Practices will be held Saturday, Sunday and Monday and Tuesday from 5pm to 7pm. This year’s team will be made up of 15 archers and 5 alternates each from the Midrealm and the East, for a total of 40.
On Sunday, August 2, from 2pm to 5pm on the Family Range, the Barony of
On Monday, August 3, and Tuesday, August 4, on the Family Range, there will
The annual Period Shoot will be held Wednesday, August 5, from 5pm to 7pm. Participants must be as authentic as possible in their clothing and equipment.
A full and updated schedule of War Points, novelty shoots, family novelty shoots, and classes will be posted at the Archery Marshals’ tent.
Archery range tear-down starts Friday, August 7, at 9am and continues until it is done. The more hands that help, the faster it will go! Anyone who has lost arrows or other archery gear should take a final look in the marshals’ tent before everything is packed-up.
Closing Ceremonies are Friday afternoon, August 7.

Pennsic Campground Restrictions due to Weather Conditions / Pennsic: restrictions du campement du aux conditions météorologiques
From the Mayor’s Office Regarding Campground Restrictions due to Weather Conditions
Be advised that these restrictions & closings only apply for PW44.
Due to abnormal rainfall this year some areas of Cooper’s Lake Campground are very wet and muddy (and have a high probability for vehicles becoming stuck). Due to that and potential complications of further rain, both before and during the event, the Mayor and the Land Staff are placing the following restrictions and closings into effect. See the list below to find out if your campsite is affected; on site look for Red Lines which will be painted around or within blocks denoting closed sections.
Blocks that are closed or restricted:
Roads that are closed or restricted:
Land staff will be in touch with those groups affected by closings and restrictions and every attempt will be made to accommodate needs of campers. If you are forced to move this year you will still get your land point. Next year you will be allowed back into your block.
If you have a storage trailer that the Cooper’s deliver to your campsite for unloading, it may be required to remain there for the duration of Pennsic depending on your encampment’s conditions. No extra footage will be allowed for your storage trailer; you must make room it in your encampment. While the driver will attempt to meet your requests, we cannot guarantee that your trailer will be placed where you want it to be.
If you choose not to have your trailer moved to your camp site, you are responsible for unloading, moving the contents of the trailer to your site, & loading it again at the end of war. You will not be allowed to tow your trailer yourself from storage to your site.
We understand that due to muddy conditions some groups may wish to build structures or modify the land to alleviate the mud, be advised, however, that NO changes to the landscape or building projects in encampments may take place without the direct permission of the Coopers! If you have a water/mud issue and you MUST come to the War Room and discuss it with the Coopers BEFORE you can make changes/build anything in your camp. NO ONE will be allowed on site before July 24th to view or work in any encampments. Failure to get appropriate permissions from the Coopers for modifications to alleviate mud may get you expelled from the site.
A Final Word
This is a difficult situation, we know. We also know how you all feel about your Pennsic encampments, but we hope that everyone will be understanding of the unusual conditions this year that require these changes. These block restrictions & closings only apply for PW44. We hope our attendees will be understanding of the compressed conditions necessary this year and conserve and share the space with grace and courtesy.
If you have any questions concerning the above announcements, please email Land Staff.
Thank You for your patience & understanding.
Baron Illiam Uaine, Mayor Pennsic War 44
Provenant du Bureau du Maire, restrictions du campement du aux conditions météorologiques
Soyez avisés que ces restrictions et fermetures s’appliquent seulement pour PW44.
Les blocs fermés ou restreints:
Routes étant fermées ou restreintes:
Si vous avez une remorque d’entreposage que les Cooper’s livrent à votre terrain pour être vidée, il se peut que nous vous demandions de garder votre remorque sur votre terrain pour la durée de l’événement, dépendant des conditions à votre campement. Il n’y aura pas d’espace additionnel alloué pour l’entreposage des remorques sur le terrain; vous devrez faire de la place pour celle-ci sur votre parcelle. Malgré que le chauffeur tentera de satisfaire vos requêtes, nous ne pouvons garantir que votre remorque sera placée à votre emplacement choisi.
Si vous choisissez de ne pas faire livrer votre remorque à votre campement, vous serez responsable de la vider, d’en bouger le contenu jusqu’à votre terrain, et de la remplir à nouveau à la fin de la guerre. Il ne sera pas permis de tirer votre remorque vous-même jusqu’à votre parcelle.
Le mot de la fin
Merci de votre patience et de votre compréhension.

The decision has been made to close the Office of the Chirurgeonate as of August 10th, 2015. The board and corporate officers want to extend their gratitude for ALL who have served our organization in this capacity in the past. To those who have provided feedback, questions, and worked to explore options for scopes of the office that would allow our organization to retain the office and maintain insurance coverage for the officers and our organization, many thanks as well.
To clarify some of the concerns that have been raised during the many discussions of this change, the board and corporate officers want to provide the following information:
The Society Seneschal has been directed to remove references to the Chirurgeonate from the Record Retention Policy. Existing records should be retained for 2 years for adults, 21 years for minors, then shredded to ensure any Personally Identifying Information is destroyed.
Local groups should sort records into Adult, Minor and Destroy categories and ship (paid for by the local group) records to the corporate office. The corporate office will retain records and handle the shredding.
Each Kingdom has thirty business days to transport these records to the corporate office.
Event Coordinators/Stewards/Autocrats are still responsible for arranging for EMS on site if that is required by municipal/county/state requirements. This most often will apply to large events projecting an attendance greater than the threshold set by the applicable modern agency. It is recommended to include information regarding distance from site to medical care in event announcements, particularly for camping events.
The marshallate will still be responsible for reporting injuries on the field. Seneschals will still be responsible for reporting injuries (particularly requiring transport) as currently directed.
Tangible assets owned by SCA branches that are specific to the Office of the Chirurgeon may be retained or donated or sold, in accordance with applicable financial policies.
Over the counter medications may not be purchased by SCA branches to distribute or make available to event attendees.
The badge of the fleam will remain available for those individual volunteers (not affiliated with the SCA, Inc. and its Kingdoms and local groups) willing to provide basic first aid.
Should additional questions or concerns regarding this change arise, please direct them to the SCA President, at email@example.com
Our thanks again, to all the volunteers that have helped keep our organization going for 50 years!
Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
