Greetings West Kingdom-
This has just come down from the Society Seneschal via the Earl
I just got a note from the Society Seneschal regarding a ruling he
has made regarding the marshallate and am passing it along. He was
asked to make a ruling on whether warranted marshals are to be
considered officers and thus subject to membership
requirements. His ruling was "Yes, as warranted safety officers of
the SCA, they are required to have memberships." So as of this time
this is official policy and KEMs in areas where memberships have not
previously been required for authorization of marshals should put in
place systems to comply.
In this case "warranted" marshals pertains to any marshal who goes
through an authorization process to become a marshal and is
or rostered as a marshal. In the current MHB, this is laid out in
the Marshals section I.A.2. and I.A.3, and in the new revision in
section IX.A.2 and IX.A.3. Any marshal that is warranted or
needs to be a member.
How we will be handling this, is that all marshals walking on the
field will be asked if they are a member, if they are a member and
over 16 then they can marshal. We will not be checking cards- this
is an honorable society and I will take your answer on your honor.
However, this also means that if you are not a member, I cannot
authorize you to be a new marshal.
I apologize for this inconvienience- Flieg, the floor is yours...
Earl Marshal West
