Heilsa all Ansteorran Marshals and Fighters...
There has, of late, been a substantial problem as regards Warranted Marshals
and "legal" Local Fighter Practices.
Local groups have only one Warranted Knight Marshal. Many do not have any
Knights holding the Authorizing Marshal certification, or an Authorizing
Marshal within their territory. This can be a problem when the Local
Warranted Knight Marshal cannot make every practice for whatever reason.
Many Local Knight Marshals are active fighters and no one can ask them to
effectively stop fighting tournaments and melees for their two year tenure.
Yet, Kingdom Law _requires_ a Warranted Knight Marshal to attend all
official functions where there is active Combat. It's a miserable "Catch 22"
Here is the solution (at least until a better idea comes along).
In consultation with the Kingdom Seneschal, Master Richard Fairborne, the
Earl Marshal does set the following policy:
Effective immediately, 20 JULY 2000, All Official Local Fighter Practices
will be considered legally convened when the following listed conditions
1. The Local Fighter Practice must be published in either the Local
newsletter or the Black Star stating location, date, and time.
2. The Local Knight Marshal, holding at least Inspection Marshal
certification in the form of a current Authorization Card, and listed on the
Warrant Roster is present at the location of the Local Fighter Practice at
the stated date and time.
OR (in conjunction with condition 1.)
3. An Authorizing Marshal, with current Authorization Card, and listed on
the Warrant Roster is present at the location of the Local Fighter Practice
at the stated date and time.
OR WHEN (in conjunction with condition 1.)
4. A Marshal, holding, at a minimum, Inspection Marshal certification in the
form of a current Authorization Card AND any other current Warranted Officer
of the Local Group are both present at the location of the Local Fighter
Practice at the stated date and time. The Warranted Officer must remain for
the entire duration of the Local Fighter Practice.
5. There will be no fighting whatsoever at the published location and
specific date, at any time on that date, if the above stated conditions are
6. When the Warranted Marshal, Warranted Officer, or Inspection Marshal
leaves the Fighter Practice location either temporarily or for the day all
fighting must cease until the above stated conditions can be reestablished.
7. If the above stated conditions cannot be reestablished then all fighting
must end for that date and location.
8. Any group found to be in non-compliance with this policy will be subject
to possible sanction.
9. This policy applies only to Official Local Fighter Practices. It does not
apply to "private" fighter practices, nor to non-published
open-to-the-public fighter practices.
Please send any comments, suggestions or complaints privately to the Earl
Marshal, Sir Kief av Kiersted.
