It seems to me that the SCA is sort of like the public school system in the
US. Everyone is welcome to come in as long as they meet the most minimal
standards. That's a good thing in many ways, because it allows everyone to
participate and to get as much out of the educational experience as they can.
Those people who want to achieve a higher level of historical accuracy need
to remember that we were there once too...and, more importantly, that we
still are. Only a tiny fraction of the SCA "authenticity mavens" I've met in
the SCA can even begin to approach the kind of authenticity that would be
required of a real re-enactment group. If you've ever run into Gardiner's
Company at Pennsic, you'll know what I mean.
- My apologies if this has already been answered -Some kingdoms are "pay for play" meaning you have to be a member to fight, others (such as the East) are not. I believe that you can authorize at Wat but if you do so, you can not actually participate in any of the battles. Now, how well all of that is (and can be) policed is another matter. I don't believe that there are Tuchux "legally" authorizing at War and then fighting.I've gotta run to a meeting - sorry this is so abrupt!Margarete----- Original Message -----From: wally meekerSent: Tuesday, April 03, 2001 5:00 PMSubject: Re: [Authentic_SCA] tuckx and PennsicI believe there is a Marshalate rule that allows Event

this. But don't you have to be a member to Authorize?
You do in Calontir.
