I haven't yet determined when it was first announced, although the
fact that people only started objecting recently suggests it may be
new. It was on the Pennsic University page yesterday--but for all I
know it could have been there for a month or more.
The only explanation I have seen of what prompted it is a child abuse
case in Pennsylvania which, so far as I can tell, had nothing to do
with Pennsic or classes, did not occur at an event, but did involve
someone with a local SCA position. It appears to be a CYA action
imposed by the Society Youth Officer on the rest of the Pennsic staff.
If it only went up recently, I think any parent who pre-registered is
entitled to cancel and get a refund, and any teacher who wishes to
cancel classes in response is entitled to. I've wondered about the
option of cancelling all my classes and posting an announcement in
various places that I will hold them as unofficial classes in some
convenient camp site.
