Proposed Change to Corpora VI.D: Marshal of the Society

The Board of Directors of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc., is seeking comments regarding proposed changes to the position of Marshal of the Society.

Proposed Change to Corpora VI.D - Marshal of the Society

Corpora VI.D. currently reads:

"The Marshal of the Society is responsible for activities related to combat and archery. This includes directing the Earls Marshal of the Kingdoms in matters concerning the supervision of combat and related activities at Society events and the manner and conduct of duties of all marshals throughout the Society; working with the Society Chirurgeon to promote safety in the Society's martial arts; and working with the Minister of Arts and Sciences to encourage research in armor and weapons. The Board specifically authorizes the Marshal to make interpretations and clarifications regarding the Rules of the Lists, with the proviso that such rulings must be reported to the Board at the following meeting. The Marshal's rulings will stand until and unless overruled by the Board."

The Marshal of the Society also oversees the SCA's equestrian activities. To bring Corpora in line with current practice, the Board proposes the following change to Corpora VI.D., adding equestrian activities to the Marshal's area of responsibility:

"The Marshal of the Society is responsible for activities related to combat, archery and equestrian activities. This includes directing the Earls Marshal of the Kingdoms in matters concerning the supervision of combat and related activities at Society events and the manner and conduct of duties of all marshals throughout the Society; working with the Society Chirurgeon to promote safety in the Society's martial arts; and working with the Minister of Arts and Sciences to encourage research in armor and weapons. The Board specifically authorizes the Marshal to make interpretations and clarifications regarding the Rules of the Lists, with the proviso that such rulings must be reported to the Board at the following meeting. The Marshal's rulings will stand until and unless overruled by the Board."
