Greetings unto the Populace,

Should something horrible befall Their Royal Majesties and their Kingdom Seneschal (Master Stephan), Their Royal Highnesses and the Incoming Kingdom Seneschal will be continuing with the protocols set forth by Their Majesties. This comprehensive Covid Policy will help codify these protocols and will be read into court on the date of Their Royal Majesties demise should that occur. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to seneschal@gleannabhann.net. (Mundanely: This policy will take effect on October 23, 2021/Fall Coronation.)

In Service to the Dream

Greeting unto the Populace of Gleann Abhann,

On Sunday, the SCA Board of Directors released an optional addition to the COVIDSafe Resolutions previously released. The policy allows for “Proof of Fully Vaccinated Status Or Negative COVID Test.” The Kingdom Seneschal in consultation with the Crown, Heirs, and Incoming Kingdom Seneschal has chosen to NOT implement this policy in Gleann Abhann at this time.

Our support and encouragement for vaccination is unquestioned, but the strictness of this policy makes it hard to implement it for our kingdom at this time. We cannot make a 100% safe in-person event regardless of these policies. We fully support and encourage all members of the populace who are eligible to get their safe and free vaccination. While we do not believe this policy is a reasonable option for our kingdom, for those who travel, other kingdoms have implemented it and you would be subject to it.

Any comments regarding the Kingdom’s choice to not implement this policy should be directed to seneschal@gleannabhann.org.

We Remain In Service to the Dream,
Caillin & Danielle, King & Queen
James & Joan, Prince & Princess
Master Stephan of Durham, Kingdom Seneschal
Mistress Kendra Dey, Incoming Kingdom Seneschal

Variance to Board Resolution of May 25, 2021, Regarding Preregistration Requirements

The Reopening Resolution approved by the SCA Board of Directors at their May 25, 2021 conference call meeting required preregistration for all SCA functions. As attendance caps will no longer be required, and the need to collect attendee information for contact tracing, while still present, is reduced, the Society Seneschal in cooperation with the President has issued an implementation variance to the May 25 Resolution regarding preregistration. The goal is to allow for the efficient operation of Society events while still preserving the ability to provide attendee information to government or health authorities if requested.

Therefore, preregistration for SCA events will no longer be required starting July 1, 2021.

All who attend any SCA sponsored event in North America including local meetings, fighter practices, etc. must be signed in on a roster, at Troll, etc. prior to entering the event. This can be a roster sign-up sheet for small events, but along with a legal name the attendee must provide some method of contact. That can be email, phone number, or street address. Kingdoms may add additional requirements for events as they choose, but in all cases, there should be a complete list of those who are at any SCA event. Such event/meeting rosters should be kept by the local Seneschal or in the manner prescribed by the Kingdoms for such information. Such information will be held pending further instructions by the Society Seneschal or President.

Kingdoms and groups may continue to require preregistration for certain functions at their discretion.
