Authorizations in Practices
- Greetings unto All,
It has come to my attention that I have been in error
on one of the finer points of the rules and I would
like to correct the matter.
I and a few others remembered from when the rules were
being redrafted last year that secondary
authorizations were going to be allowed at practices
and not single rapier (or primary) authorizations.
That likely was true at some point of the revision
process; however, the current rules, as passed by
Privy Council, state:
> (See Note 11)

or events, even Single Authorizations, provided that
the following is true:

practice as described and governed by the Rapier Rules
of Ealdormere. My assertions to the contrary were
incorrect as per the Rapier Rules of Ealdormere.
Now, as I personally declined to do Single Rapier
Authorizations at practice in the past, I personally
will not do Single Authorizations at practice for the
duration of my term as KRM. This is in respect to
those I denied the chance to Authorize at practice in
the past. My apologies for the inconvenience I caused
those people, and I'm glad to hear all of you are
Authorized now. I encourage all other Marshals to NOT
keep the same limitations and to follow the spirit and
the letter of the rules, under your good judgement as
a Marshal and fair appraisal of the skill of the

concerns. In service I remain,
