  • UPDATED: Masks are now required for all SCA activities that are held indoors, including combat. Other current restrictions are: no shared food or drink, attendance must be taken at all SCA activities (or sign up ahead to save time – we will post and send out invitations when the new forms are ready), pre-registrations are required for all weekend SCA events, and if you are hosting or posting invitations for any SCA activity you must include the Society disclaimer.

  • Updates on SCA and kingdom restrictions, and baronial updates, will be distributed via the Cleftlist email list and the baronial Facebook page.
  • In an effort to keep business meetings short, and to reduce the number of announcements, gentles who have announcements are asked to send them prior to the meeting to Chronicler THL Jolicia atte Northclyfe at chronicler@cleftlands.org.
  • UPDATED: Apologies for the lack of chairs and tables, and the locked doors. After investigating, we found that there is new management who were not aware of our situation. In the future we can use the rectangular, white plastic tables in the gym, and there will be stacks of chairs in the classroom that can be used as well. There are about 30-40 chairs available. We have been advised we will also have air conditioning! Please do not use any round tables or white chairs. Thanks for your patience!
