A note from the Seneschal
This is a family oriented event and the Barony is in full
support of fostering minors in the SCA. There are two
playgrounds and many activities for young people.

If you are considering bringing minor children that are not
your own, please make sure you have the parent or guardian of
the minor sign the required Medical Authorization for Minors:
http://www.antir.sca.org/Pubs/forms/#waivers prior to
arriving at Gate. This will ensure that you are legally
authorized to sign the minor waivers and can care for the
minor in case of emergency. Thank you.
