news!  Beginning in October 2010 the SCA will test a newcomer recruitment
initiative that will run until July 1, 2011. During this time the SCA will
include a VIP Pass in the envelopes containing membership cards sent out to the
first 6,000 participants who renew their memberships. This benefit of
membership allows a renewing SCA member to give a VIP Pass to a single

The holder of the
VIP Pass is exempt from paying the Non-Member Surcharge (NMS) for their first
three events they attend while exploring the SCA. The VIP Pass is not a
free admission to an SCA event; it simply excuses the Pass holder from paying
the NMS. 

At the third
event, these passes will be collected by “Gate” personnel and sent on to the
SCA NMS deputy. The SCA will then follow up with these newcomers with
membership literature. Instructions for handling the VIP Pass at “Troll”/”Gate”
can be found at both the Society Exchequer and Corporate Treasurer websites at http://www.sca.org/officers/exchequer/ and http://www.sca.org/officers/treasurer/.

To validate the
Pass, the newcomer must fill it out, sign and date it at Gate at the first event they
attend. Passes are good until redeemed fully at a total of three
events. Each pass can be used only by the single newcomer whose name is
put on it at the time of the first use. Passes are not transferable. All
VIP Passes expire on July 1, 2011.

The VIP Pass is
meant for use only by first time newcomers, not for folks who are current or
past members of the SCA.  The VIP Pass is NOT valid for the following Inter-Kingdom
events: Pennsic War, Gulf Wars, Estrella War, Lilies War and Great Western War.
At these events, newcomers must still pay the NMS.

As the Society is
based on the concepts of honor and Chivalry, it is assumed that the good
gentles using the VIP Pass will not seek to abuse the hospitality of the
SCA.  Any person abusing the system will be subject to sanctions.  

If you have
additional questions please email chatelaine at sca.org or exchequer at sca.org.
