949Re: [Ayreton] Re: Background checks for Youth people
- Apr 18, 2007Greetings (former) Lady Mayor,
There is another potential aspect in this too, involving Archery Marshals.
As it stands right now, Archery Marshals-in-Training are the only group of
marshals that have to conduct a Youth activity as part of their training.
Under this, prospective Archery MiTs are going to have to undergo a
background check before they ever attend a single event for their training.
This could have a chilling effect on membership for future Archery Marshals
who may have no desire to have their background prodded into before they
even complete one part of their training.
I also concur with the Lord Mayor in that this may end up shutting down
Youth activities across the board in the SCA.
I am also wondering if this issue hasn't been addressed before, especially
since there are now SCA Members who have parents and grandparents that "grew
up" in the SCA.
