Warren, Michigan, exempts SCA from new fighting ban

Members of the Barony of Roaring Wastes were successful in persuading the city council of Warren, Michigan to exempt SCA fighter practices from a new law banning fighting in city parks.

Responding to liability concerns after a youth in California died from boxing wounds, the city council voted 8 to 1 in favor of a new law imposing fines of US$100 to US$1000 for unsanctioned fighting in the city parks. The city can grant permission for sanctioned, refereed fighting, however, such as those the SCA practices with supervision and protective equipment.
