This is NO law that says: "Two youths may not have a pretend battle with
pretend weapons made of foam." Beyond that, a lot of folks will give you their
interpretation of how other laws may be applied. For the facts, consult a lawyer
specializing in law for juveniles.
My chain of command in the Ansteorran marshalate has informed me that there
is a ruling from the Society Earl Marshal prohibiting boffer combat in the SCA,
adult or child. This specifically does not apply to foam weapons used as a
supplement to approved form of combat, such as rapier.
