IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:
Site security: The electronic code that locks and unlocks the door is being changed and will be on the a timer. This means we cannot enter before our rental time, and everyone must be out of the building before 10 p.m. or they will be locked inside. The church has installed security cameras on both doors and the gym.
New seneschal: Our seneschal Lady Claricia is stepping down at the end of the year. Applications for the position open on Oct. 1, and the new person will take over Jan. 1. See Claricia if you want to know more about the job.
No more masks: Masks will no longer be required for any SCA activities in the Middle Kingdom. The ONLY Covid policy still in effect is the required posting of the Society disclaimer at all in-person events and in any digital invitations for those events (Facebook events, website, emails, social posts). If you test positive for COVID-19, please do not attend meetings or events. See our seneschal Clarissa if you have questions.
