If there is any doubt, then we should be waiting for a ruling from the
Kingdom Archery Marshal, Master Pug, or the Earl Marshal, Duke Patrick
Micheal. So far all I have seen is..".if it was me", or "in my opinions" for
answers. I thought that there had been some discussion recently about
requiring a parent or notorized representative thereof for every minor at an
activity where there is potential for physical injury. Now, Archery isn't
classified as a combat activity, but we do mess with a lot of pointy sharp
things. I would be a lot more comfortable requiring a parent or person
authorized with all the right paperwork, that has the ok to get medical
treatment for a kid if, God forbid, something should happen. It doesn't even
have to be something archery related at the site for medical care to be
needed. I don't want to have to hope that someone has a cell phone and is
present, and that someone else know's mom or dad's exact whereabouts, and
someone knows the kid's medical history, etc.
Having worked as an EMT and emergency room nurse, I know full well the
danger and frustration of not being able to treat a child completely without
having a parent or someone with the authority to approve treatment in the
case of an emergency. I don't want to have to chase all over a site, or out
in the mundane world electronically for that approval.
As far as the notorized forms...yes a new one must be done for every event.
A hassle, but necessary.
If I was going to be the authorized party on those forms, I would make sure
that I had the following information in addition to the parent's contact
info., or that the minor had it with him in written form: Doctor's name and
phone number, allergies, any health conditions, and significant previous
medical history. There's an awful lot more to consider when becoming
'guardian' for a day, than just taking the kid to the activity.

does the notarized page have to be for each separate event or can the same
one be used indefinitely??
