      ----- Regarding waivers and sign-ins generally: in
      the Midrealm, there is no requirement to use waivers at a simple practice,
      and it isn't done, normally. Individual marshals at local practices can,
      of course, use sign-in sheets, scorecards, waivers, whatever; there is no
      requirement NOT to use them either; but generally I think folks would
      think that sort of thing much more officious than need be for a simple
      practice. Bear in mind that, as far as the overall SCA goes, a seperate
      waiver for an archery range isn't required even for an event, which leads
      to part two...

      ----- Regarding Gladius' question about
      insurance. If a practice is officially announced at a regular meeting,
      and/or if it is published in a recognized Scadian publication such as a
      local newsletter or whatnot, then the practice is regarded as an
      "event", and insurance applies, I believe. And, other such
      circumstances, the presence of a warranted marshal is required (if the
      kingdom in which this takes places has recognized and warranted TAMs - I
      think all kingdoms do, now, ne ce pas?). This is why, when I was
      Archer-General, if someone came to me and said "there's a group of us
      that would like to practice, but there are no marshals in our area, what
      can we do?" I would advise them simply to go to someone's backyard or
      a local range and practice to their hearts content - without involving the
      SCA as such by announcing or advertising it in a formal sense within SCA
      venues or media. So, the case that Gladius discusses (and by extension,
      what Lorelei is getting at) is - a sign-in sheet does not create
      liability. The presence of a warranted marshal does not create liability
      as such. Requiring the signing of a waiver is a grey area, and could be
      implied to apply a liability if you wanted to argue it. Standing up in a
      regular meeting and announcing that you are going to hold a practice on
      such-and-such a day, or publishing said info in your shire newsletter,
      does create an official SCA venue, and under that circumstance, all
      relevant kingdom and SCA Inc. regulations are in force.
