MARTIAL ACTIVITY RESTART UPDATE – 29 May 2021

This morning, Their Majesties announced that the kingdom will allow a full restart of activities, within the confines of the new Society directives and state/local guidelines and orders.

After consultation with Their Majesties, the Martial Activities Restart Plan is hereby rescinded.

Martial activities will continue to be prohibited in the Middle Kingdom through June 30, 2021. This includes meetings, practices, and events.

Starting on July 1, 2021, all martial activities will be permitted as normal, with the exception that we must continue to follow Society directives on no shared water/food, and attendance at activities should be preregistered.

ALL directives and restrictions from the Martial Activities Restart Plan are void, meaning all remaining marshal training zoom meetings are canceled, and no one is required to participate in the Reintroduction process.

All martial authorizations and marshal warrants that were valid at the beginning of the shutdown will have their expiration date set for July 1, 2022.

Questions may be sent to marshal@midrealm.org

Concerns about restarting activities may be emailed to sca-comments@lists.sca.org

As a final note: activities being allowed does not require you to participate. Please do not do anything, or let yourself feel pressured to do anything, that you do not feel safe doing.

I want to thank all of my deputies for all of their hard work as we prepared for a restart on an ever-shifting landscape.
