Due to Covid-19, this event is capped at 450 attendees.  We will send an announcement as soon as we reach capacity for the event.

As a result this event is currently pre-registration only.  We highly encourage you to register as soon as you are able.

All attendees who are eligible to be vaccinated still need to show either proof of full vaccination or a medically-supervised negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the in-person gathering.  Event staff will continue to check this documentation.  Attendees over the age of 18 also still need to show gov’t-issued photo ID or SCA blue cards with the same name as the vaccination card/negative test results.

As part of the check-in process for attending an in-person gathering, the ATTENDEE will sign a form attesting to the following. 

By signing below, you are confirming that you have presented proper identification, along with either proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours prior to the start of the event.  (If you presented proof of a negative COVID test it complies with the current SCA COVIDSafe rules).

Accordingly, we feel that it is appropriate at this time to lift the Kingdom’s mask requirement for outdoor gatherings only, as of March 1st, including martial activities.  We remind everyone to continue safety practices such as social distancing, frequent handwashing, etc.

Please note:  folks gathering in a public tent / pop-up / pavilion with 3 or 4 walls up must continue to wear masks.  The air flow with 3 or 4 walls up is insufficient to be safely unmasked.  Masks may be lowered briefly while actively eating or drinking.

Of course, many will wish to continue to wear masks, and we respect that choice.  Everyone must take the steps necessary for their own sense of safety at our activities.

The mask requirement remains in place for all indoor gatherings of any size/activity, for everyone over the age of 2.


Health Acknowledgement

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events.  By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks.  You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.
