Chirurgeons Guild Established

Wed, 2015-07-15 11:56

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.

Mistress Fia Kareman, CSC, OP

Archery at Pennsic 44

Mon, 2015-07-13 22:22

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:
Sunday, August 2
Monday, August 3
Tuesday, August 4
Thursday, August 6
Practice is allowed on the actual war point ranges from 9am to 11am.
Official war point shooting will be run 11am to 5pm.
It is unlikely that war point shooting will happen on Wednesday, August 5, from 3 to 5pm, as listed in the Pennsic booklet. (As of writing this article, opinions were divided on this.)

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
Roaring Wastes is hosting a Known World Baronial Archery Championship
Tourney

On Monday, August 3, and Tuesday, August 4, on the Family Range, there will
be a Beginners’ Class from 9am to 10am for those aged 12 and under, followed by a Monster Novelty Shoot, from 10am to 11 am.

On Wednesday, August 5, the range is closed to  general shooting for the Archery Champions Team War Point Competition, 9am to 2pm.

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:
• All of E-32.
• All of W-19.
• All of W-23.
• Part of W-21 closed, west of site 52 (the fire pit is okay).
• Part of N-15 closed, the eastern portion just past the water spigot.
• E-31 (The Island) is no longer handicapped accessible! The Island is campable, but muddy & prone to flooding in severe weather. Camping on the Island will be allowed, but campers are advised that this is at their own risk due to the possibility of flooding. No vehicles will be allowed on the Island. No trailers will be delivered to the Island. The foot bridge is the only access to The Island; if you choose to camp there your encampment must make arrangements to move your gear by hand from storage to your encampment & back to storage at the end of War. Note: The Cooper’s will not be able to make any site improvements to the Island to alleviate muddy conditions.
• W-09 is not closed, but has Driving Restrictions—cars may not drive off of the of the gravel road.

Roads that are closed or restricted:
• Howard’s Fenway is closed.
• Nagashino Road, between B05 and B09 is closed.
• Hill Road, is restricted to one way traffic (south bound only!) from the Low Road to Good Intentions.
Other block restrictions/concerns:
• N-12 is not closed, but there will be no single campers on the block.
• W-20: very muddy & prone to flooding in severe weather.
• No ground fires are allowed on the Battlefield.
• No ground fires are allowed in the southernmost section of E11.

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.

Storage Trailers

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.

Construction Projects

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.

Provenant du Bureau du Maire, restrictions du campement du aux conditions météorologiques

Soyez avisés que ces restrictions et fermetures s’appliquent seulement pour PW44.
Du aux chutes de pluie anormalement élevées cette année, certaines zones du Camping de Cooper’s Lake sont saturées et boueuses (et représentent une grande probabilité pour les véhicules de s’y embourber). À cause de cette situation, et des complications potentielles suivant des averses subséquentes, que ce soit avant ou suivant l’événement, le Maire et le Personnel décrètent les restrictions et fermetures suivantes comme prenant effet maintenant. Consultez la liste ci-dessous pour savoir si votre site de camping est affecté; sur le site, recherchez les Lignes Rouges qui seront peintes autour ou dans les blocs pour identifier les sections fermées.

Les blocs fermés ou restreints:
• Tout le E-32.
• Tout le W-19.
• Tout le W-23.
• Une partie du W-21 est fermée, à l’ouest du site 52 (la partie du feu de camp est ok).
• Une partie du N-15 est fermée, la portion juste à l’est du point d’eau.
• E-31 (l’Ile) n’est plus accessible pour les handicapés ! l’Ile est disponible pour établir des campements, mais elle est boueuse et sujette à une inondation si les conditions météorologiques se dégradent. Les campeurs désirant s’y installer sont avisés que ce sera à leurs propres risques du aux probabilités d’inondation. Aucun véhicule ne sera admis sur l’Ile. Aucune remorque ne sera livrée sur l’Ile. Le pont piéton est le seul accès pour l’Ile; si vous décidez d’y camper, vous devrez planifier de transporter tout votre matériel à la main à l’arrivée et à votre départ. Note: Les Cooper’s ne seront pas en mesure d’effectuer des aménagements à l’Ile afin d’améliorer les conditions boueuses.
• W-09 n’est pas fermé, mais a des restrictions pour la conduite — les véhicules ne pourront pas sortir de la route de gravier.

Routes étant fermées ou restreintes:
• Howard’s Fenway est fermée.
• Nagashino Road, entre B05 et B09 est fermée.
• Hill Road, est restreinte à un sens unique (direction sud seulement!) à partir de Low Road à Good Intentions.
Autres restrictions de blocs/inquiétudes:
• N-12 n’est pas fermé, mais il n’y aura pas de campeurs individuels sur le bloc.
• W-20 est très boueuse et sujet à inondations en cas de mauvais temps..
• Aucun feu à même le sol ne sera permis sur le champ de bataille.
• Aucun feu à même le sol ne sera permis dans la section la plus au sud du bloc E11.
Le personnel sera en contact avec les groupes affectés par les fermetures ou restrictions et tout sera fait pour accommoder les besoins des campeurs. Si vous êtes forcés de déménager cette année, vous aurez tout de même votre point de terrain. L’année prochaine, vous pourrez réintégrer vos blocs respectifs.

Remorques d’entreposage

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.


Projets de construction

Nous comprenons qu’à cause des conditions très boueuses, certains groupes pourraient vouloir construire des structures ou modifier le terrain afin d’améliorer les conditions. Soyez avisés, cependant, qu’AUCUN changement au terrassement ou projet de construction ne pourront avoir lieu dans les campements sans la permission directe des Cooper’s ! Si vous avez un problème d’eau/de boue, vous DEVEZ aller à la Salle de Guerre et en discuter avec les Cooper’s AVANT de pouvoir faire des changements/constructions dans votre camp. PERSONNE ne sera admis sur le site avant le 24 juillet pour voir ou travailler sur des terrains. Déroger à ces directives sans obtenir la permission appropriée des Cooper’s pour des modifications visant à améliorer le terrain pourraient vous faire expulser du site.

Le mot de la fin
Tout ceci représente une situation difficile, nous le savons. Nous savons également comment la plupart d’entre vous vous sentez par rapport à votre campement à Pennsic, mais nous espérons que tous seront compréhensifs des conditions extraordinaires de cette année, qui forcent ces changements. Les restrictions et fermetures de blocs s’appliqueront seulement pour PW44. Nous espérons que nos participants seront compréhensifs des compressions nécessaires cette année, et sauront conserver et partager l’espace avec grâce et courtoisie.
Si vous avez des questions concernant l’annonce ci-dessus, s’il-vous-plaît, contactez par courriel le Land Staff.

Merci de votre patience et de votre compréhension.

Board Decision regarding Office of the Chirugeonate

Sat, 2015-07-11 21:11

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 president@sca.org

Our thanks again, to all the volunteers that have helped keep our organization going for 50 years!

Leslie Vaughn
President, SCA, Inc

A.J. Pongratz
Vice President of Operations, SCA, Inc.
