For everyone’s safety the site owners request that only those who have received their first vaccine at least two weeks before the practice attend.
Fighters please arrange to arrive in your soft kit or change out of sight or in the washroom. Please do not change in the public space.
As of July 1st we have reached Step 3 of the BC Government Restart. This allows for a return to normal for indoor and outdoor personal gatherings and a 50 person or 50% capacity for organized gatherings.
BC Government advises that “masks are recommended in indoor public places for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated. The mask mandate order under the Emergency Program Act was lifted July 1.”
This being said it would be much appreciated if those using the washroom at the house would please wear a mask while inside.

The SCA Bullying and Harassment policy is in effect. It is an attendee’s responsibility to be familiar with and understand this policy. Here is the full policy:
“The SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups. Harassment and bullying includes, but is not limited to the following: *offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual; *the display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner; *photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual; *inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying. Participants violating these rules are subject to appropriate sanctions. If an individual feels subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, they should contact a Seneschal, President of the SCA, or the Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman. If a participant of the SCA becomes aware that someone is being harassed or bullied, they have a responsibility pursuant to the SCA Code of Conduct to come forward and report this behavior to a Seneschal, President of the SCA or Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.”
