Pennsic Chirurgeonate Concerns

Jason Williams, Chairman, SCA Inc., addresses concerns about the closing of Chirurgeon's Point at Pennsic XXXV.

Jason WIlliams writes:

In recent days, the Board has received a large volume of communication from the membership regarding the Pennsic event management staff's decision to transfer first aid coordination responsibilities from the Chirurgeonate to Northwestern EMS.

While the Board does not desire to become involved in event management, we do feel that in this instance, an investigation is warranted. The Society Chirurgeon's and the Society Seneschal's offices will each coordinate inquiries related to their individual areas of influence and report back to the Board in time for the October quarterly meeting with their recommendations.

We realize that this is an emotional topic for some, and would appreciate everyone's effort to keep the communication on a professional, well-reasoned level. Open hostility, sarcasm and vitriol accomplish little. If you have relevant information to share, we encourage you to send an e-mail to and/or
