> Ladies and Gentlemen,
> There have been a couple common questions that have come through on
> comments and in various email lists. I have asked Mazelle Attiya, the
> Society Exchequer and Interim Corporate Treasurer, to address those. Her
> comments are below.
> I appreciate your patience and your well-thought out comments.

> Letter from Mazelle Attiya follows:
> Allow me to address two specific questions that numerous people have
> asked in regards to the proposal dealing with water bearing activities.
> 1. Does it mean that we cant use SCA Funds to purchase water,
> Gatorade, food, etc for the fighters?
> The answer is yes, groups, including kingdoms and the major wars can
> still use SCA Funds to purchase supplies and food products for the
> populaces use. Donations can still be taken for this but instead of it
> going to the Waterbearers Fund; it will have to be place into a
> different Fund. I will be discussing this with all the kingdom
> exchequers. The group funds currently set aside for waterbearing would
> still belong to the group to purchase water, etc. It just is not labeled
> as belonging the guild/office anymore.
> 2. What happens to the equipment and supplies that belong to the
> Since SCA Funds were probably used to purchase the equipment and
> supplies, then it all belongs to the group that bought the items. The
> items still need to be listed on inventory and in the case of items
> valued over $500 have to be included on the depreciation schedule of the
> group as should currently be the case. Nothing changes there at all. The
> best analogy that I can give is the following: think of the
> Waterbearers Office as a division of a large corporation. If the
> division is dissolved then the assets would be absorbed back into the
> rest of the corporation. Same sort of scenario is happening here. There
> is no impact financially as to who can use a groups equipment, however
> individual groups might have policies in place that restrict usage, such
> as not allowing individuals from borrowing equipment for usage outside
> of the SCA. You do not need to be an officer of a group to use its
> property. Feastcrats/Headcooks would be a good example of non officers
> using group property.
> If any one has any further questions or comments, they may contact me at
> treasurer at sca.org.
