I dont know about the rest of the Kingdom or the Baronys, however, here in Elfsea we have an archery program and children of all ages are welcome to come and participate, they just need? parent at the range with them or someone who has been desiginated to be responsible for them.? Several years ago, when I was the archery marshall, I started the childrens archery program for the younger children.
We have some very good young archers in our Barony.

How many LARPers does it take to take down an angry Italian child armed with
a sword?
Quite a few it seems.

But seriously, I'm not just spamming the list. I was wondering what the
attitude of the kingdom was toward children in general is. (This would be
anyone required to be accompanied with an over-21 at events.)
There are those who have them, and there are those who don't, those who
technically are and those who until recently /were/ children. I myself fall
somewhat into the latter category (no I don't, I was born old, it just took
everyone awhile to catch on) but more importantly to me, I have younger
brothers, (4, 8, and 16) who want to follow their "little big brother" to
events (I asked one of them what he thinks he wants to do - he said he wants
to be king, so look out people!), and I'd love to take them, but I'm curious
to know what kind of world they'd be entering.
So a couple things to think about in answering: what are your attitudes
toward children (especially those of other people)? What is there - in the
SCA or at any given event - for children to be involved in? What do we do to
not just make room for them in our dream, but make them a /part/ of it, and
make ourselves a part of their dream? And to those of you who were "born
into the Society"... what keeps you here?

((I know I'm going to regret this when I get inundated with responses; my
inbox is sore already.))
