Parents and Volunteers at Youth Hall and the Youth Melee Field -- We ask that each parent or guardian provide at least one hour of help at the Youth Hall or Youth Melee Field for each of their youth (ages 5-12), who participate in the youth activities and classes. To volunteer to help with youth classes and activities, please sign up at the Youth Hall from 9-10am Thursday thru Sunday, so that we can schedule a time that matches you with your interests, or contact THL Jayne Barber at krege@... with the days and times you wish to volunteer.
Temporary Guardianships and Required Forms – Adults who bring to this event, minors for whom they are not the Parent or Legal Guardian (as appointed by a court) are considered to be Temporary Guardians. Temporary Guardians must bring for each minor, one copy each of the following three forms: 1) The notarized “Child Guardian Consent Form”, 2) a notarized “Medical Authorization for Minors” form, and 3) the “Minor's Consent to Participate and Hold Harmless Agreement” form. Please note that all three of these forms must be signed by the youth’s parents or legal guardians in advance and their signatures on two of these forms must be notarized. If at the time of check-in at the gate, the Temporary Guardian has a current SCA blue membership card for said minor, they do not have to present the “Minor’s Consent to Participate and Hold Harmless Agreement” form. The Minors Consent to Participate and Hold Harmless Agreement form will be kept at the Gate and the Temporary Guardian will keep the other two forms. For the Outlands Kingdom, minors are persons under 18 years of age residing in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming and under 19 years of age (unless married) residing in Nebraska. These three required forms are available at http://www.battlemoor.org/shedule/children-youth-and-teen-activities/child-forms/
Court Appointed Guardians – Court Appointed Guardians need to bring a copy of their court documents to present at the Gate at the time of check-in with the minor.
Pre-Registration – We encourage you to pre-register for Battlemoor, so that we can have a better idea of the numbers of youth to prepare for. No pre-payment is required. You can pre-register at http://www.battlemoor.org/registration/
