be either, a biological or blended family residing in the
same location. This would include children and/or
stepchildren, parents and/or domestic partners. Same sex
domestic partners are included in this definition. The family
cap has never been to accommodate SCA house-holds, or
families where the children are over 18, whether or not they
live at the same physical address. The Non Member Surcharge
is added on the top of the family cap, it applies to all
non-member adults attending an SCA event. Minors are never
charged the Non Member Surcharge when there is a discounted
minor rate.” Site opens 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday for the
