Potential New Peerage Exploratory Committee

Based on input from the Census results, as well as an examination of the
breadth and depth of participation across the Known World and the unique
subculture, ethos, and goals it has developed within the Society, the Board
of Directors intends to explore the possibility of creating a new peerage
to recognize as peers those participants who meet the general requirements
for a patent of arms and who demonstrate prowess in Rapier / Cut and Thrust
Combat. As this would potentially be the first additional peerage for the
SCA in many decades, input and feedback from the Known World throughout the
exploratory process is essential.

The SCA’s Board of Directors is seeking individuals interested in
participating in an Exploratory Committee focused on developing a set of
options for potential implementation of a new peerage for Rapier Combat
and/or Cut and Thrust Combat. This committee would be responsible for
developing sets of recommendations for heraldry, regalia, corpora changes
and identifying and addressing associated issues around creating and
implementing such a peerage, and would consist of representatives of the
following categories:
· One recognized Rapier Fencer or Rapier Fencing Official
· One recognized C&T Fencer or C&T Fencing Official
· One Fencing Laurel (recognized for Fence)
· One Fencing Pelican (recognized for Fence)
· One Fencing Knight/Master at Arms
· Two Heralds
· One Non-Fencing Pelican
· One Non-Fencing Laurel
· One Non-Fencing Knight/Master at Arms
· One Lady of the Rose
· One expert in Corpora (e.g., Seneschal)
· One SCA Archivist or Historian

Please submit Letters of Intent by July 1st, 2012 and identify to which of
the above categories you are specifically applying. Those individuals who
have expressed interest already via the Comments email address or the
Directors email address will be considered.
Hard copies of resumes (both professional and SCA related, including
offices held and honors) must be sent to the attention of The Board of
Directors, SCA, Inc., P.O. Box 360789, Milpitas, CA 95036-0789. Electronic
courtesy copies should also be sent to [mailto:
peerageexploratorycommittee at sca.org] peerageexploratorycommittee at sca.organd
resumes at sca.org.

The exploration into a new stand-alone Peerage for Rapier / Cut and Thrust
is driven not only by what the Board of Directors perceives to be a very
high level of support across the organization, but also because it
expresses a defined and specific culture that is unique and separate from
chivalric armoured combat, other martial arts, and the unique and separate
cultures of the Arts and Sciences and Service communities.

The results of this Exploratory Committee, along with comments from the
populace about those results, will then be reviewed by a much larger and
more representative Review Committee. The Review Committee will be
established later by the Board of Directors and will be comprised of
representatives selected by the relevant groups and organizations within
and across the Society (e.g., the Kingdoms, Peerages, Heralds, Seneschals,
Grand Council, Rapier Fencing Community, and C&T Fencing Community) as a
final input into the process. The Board will be working with those
organizations to request their nominees following the formation of the
Exploratory Committee. The Board welcomes all commentary throughout this
exploratory process from the populace at large. Please send commentary to
[mailto:Comments at sca.org] Comments at sca.org and include Potential New
Peerage in the subject line.
Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
SCA Inc.
Box 360789
Milpitas,  CA 95036
