Board/Committee approval for rule changes

The Board of SCA Ltd Australia and SCANZ Inc have liability, so should have sign off on rule changes. If not, are they happy for a non-member (eg not a member of SCA Ltd) to make decisions that affect their liability.

This also affects one of the Rules of the Lists - the Sovereign can't just waive something like our requirement for mesh during mixed combat.

Armoured Combat Editing Notes

Combat Authorisation Reqs

  • Update to lochac.sca.org urls where available
  • Suggest upping minimum age for banner bearers to 16. War is an armoured combat activity, and no armoured combatant may be under 16. It walks like a duck, sounds like a duck...

Armour requirement

  • Update as per rulings and clarifications in text of notes.

Melee Weapon standards

  • Footnote re towball covers can be removed but this exemption is now no longer relevant due to the existence of low-profile thrusting tips.
  • "Restraints are not required on great weapons or spears used single-handed, or on single-handed back-up weapons less than 45 centimetres in length." Society rules don't include a max length for back-up single-handed weapons not requiring lanyards. Is this a specifically Lochac thing?
  • incorporate changes from rulings in notes

Missile Weapon Standards

  • Define rigid and non-rigid quivers (use rigid material standards?)

Changes to rules

  • also need to update change log page when changes are incorporated
  • should also require the approval of the SCA NZ Inc committee and SCA Ltd Australia Board as they hold the liability.
  • changes to the rules which would affect our exemptions should also include an update to those exemptions from Society Earl Marshal.

  • We're keeping indemnities for minors for 21 years??

Rapier - Administration

  • What are SCA Lochac (NZ & AUS) requirements for working with youth?
  • Why is Rapier not under the Group Marshal - as it is at Kingdom level?
  • Chiropracter as health professional?
  • Quarter Courts don't exist anymore - use grievance procedure as per Kingdom Law

  • broadcloth
  • a single layer of heavy poplin cloth (35% cotton, 65% polyester; "trigger" cloth)
  • sweat pants
  • Woven knit tights or lycra /spandex mix tights.
Nylon pantyhose and cotton gauze shirts are examples of unacceptable materials.

Any fabric or combination of fabrics that passes the Standard Fencing Armour Test set out under rule 3.2.1.5. Examples may include, but are not limited to:
  • 2 mm leather
  • four layers of heavy poplin cloth
  • ballistic nylon rated to at least 550 Newtons
  • commercial fencing clothing rated to at least 550 Newtons.
Kevlar is not an acceptable material, as it degrades rapidly.
Rigid Material
Puncture-resistant materials that will not significantly flex, spread apart, or deform under pressure of 12 kg applied by a standard mask tester repeatedly to any single point. Examples of rigid material that may comply with the standard for Rigid Material are:
  • 0.8 mm stainless steel 1.0 mm mild steel
