Excuse me, but you can't do this. Any of these authorizations will be null and

His Grace Patrick Michael has been quite clear that backyard authorizations
are not allowed and I am violent agreement with him. Authorizations must be at
official events (which official practices are) where the activity is supposed
to take place. I've had several problems similar to this come up within combat
archery in the last week so this is not a unique problem but it can sometimes
be solved.

As example, the Northern Region has a regional practice this weekend where
they are doing different maneuvers and authorizations and even found a method
to do combat authorizations within the rules despite the original site not
allowing it.

I'm sorry that people failed to plan ahead. The fact that people needed to get
authorized before war has been well known. The people to contact have been on
the marshal's webpage. I have little to no sympathy for people who waited this
long before taking care of it.
