>"A member of the SCA may not hit a member of the public with any weapon regardless of whether the member of the public is in armor and gives consent. Adult members of the public who wish to try armored combat should be referred to the nearest SCA group for instruction. (Note: target archery is not considered a "combat-related activity," and so waivers need not be signed for that activity, but be certain that all appropriate safety procedures are taught and followed.) "
>Based upon this even without checking with the College we cannot place anyone in armor except at a training session not a demo.
>As far as "fight-a-knight" the Demo policy says:
>"With specific safety restrictions, supervised children age 12 and under may hit an armored SCA fighter with boffer weapons only, not rattan weapons. Waivers are not needed from the parents of children who take part in "fight-a-knight" activities. Minimum safety standards include keeping unarmored observers at least 10 feet away from the armored fighter and child. Individual Kingdoms may make more restrictive policies."
