    ANNOUNCEMENT - From the Pentamere Seneschal:

    Please pass along this information to all of your events stewards. This information needs to go onto your group's event websites. I had to turn away an adult who was bringing a friend's child with her from gate yesterday. She did have a permission slip, but that was not enough to meet SCA requirements. I was not happy to turn her away, and I realize that this requirement has not been very visible. See below:

    When attending an event with an adult not their parent or legal guardian, the SCA Medical Authorization for Minors form will be completed, notarized and presented at the event along with a completed Minor Waiver.

    Medical Authorization for Minors form must be notarized.
