Misc – Kingdom of An Tir – SCA

Greetings An Tir,‎

Today the Society released the policy regarding requiring proof of vaccination or testing ‎within a 72 hour period for attendance to any activity sponsored by the SCA. ‎We WILL be applying this policy in An Tir. This implementation will occur in phases, and ‎you can expect updates regarding this requirement.‎ As some of you know, the Principality of Tir Righ already has a requirement for proof of ‎vaccination for attendance to any indoor event, and that has been implemented for Fall Crown. ‎King County, Washington has also followed suit and it will be in place for 12th night. ‎‎ ‎Please read and become familiar with this policy. This will be in place for every SCA ‎activity including, but not limited to, Fighter Practices, Indoor Events, Arts and Sciences night, ‎and Business meetings. ‎As always, please email me directly at if you have any further ‎comments or questions.‎ Attia Prima, OPKingdom Seneschal, An Tir

Edited to Add the Copy of the Policy: Proof of fully vaccinated status or negative COVID test.

In addition to the existing policy allowing Kingdoms to establish a mask policy, Kingdom Seneschals in ‎consultation with the Crown shall have the discretion to implement the following policy requiring proof ‎of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of an event start time from all ‎event attendees:‎‎

1.‎ Events are any activities defined in Corpora II.A, Society Events Defined.

‎‎2.‎ Proof of being fully vaccinated must be in form of a government issued card (original or ‎photograph) or an electronic record.‎‎

3.‎ Proof of negative covid test must be issued from a licensed medical provider and presented in ‎such paper form or electronic form that the event staff can verify its authenticity. Letterhead from ‎a medical provider or an email address clearly identifying the medical provider as the sender of an ‎electronic record shall constitute authentic proof. ‎‎

4.‎ All persons over the age of 18 must present government issued photo identification along with the ‎proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID test. Parents and guardians of minors must ‎present their own identification along with proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID ‎test for all minors attending an event in their care.

‎‎5.‎ Proof of vaccine or a negative test shall not be required for children under 12. Children that are ‎aged 3 through 11 shall wear a mask.‎‎

6.‎ In addition to the normal sanctions process, anyone challenging event staff regarding the ‎enforcement of this COVID policy shall be denied entry to or be immediately removed from the ‎event.‎‎

7.‎ The Kingdom must have one person at a time checking the proof of being fully vaccinated or a ‎negative COVID test at an event. The event organizer, or their designee, shall maintain a list of ‎names and times of the person(s) conducting the check at the entrance. Once the entrance is ‎closed at the event, said person(s) will sign a statement at the bottom of the list of names and ‎times, which reads: ‎‎“I have monitored the event entrance at the times noted above, and I have verified that ‎each person entering the event during that time to have shown me proper identification, ‎along with either proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID test taken within ‎‎72 hours of the start of the event.” ‎The event organizer, or their designee, shall forward the signed statement to the Kingdom ‎Seneschal, or their designee, who shall maintain such records in accordance with the standards for ‎retention of waivers.‎‎

8.‎ Kingdom Seneschals shall notify the Society Seneschal where local, state, provincial, or national ‎law supersedes this policy.

‎‎9.‎ This policy shall not apply to Lochac and Drachenwald.‎

I got to wondering if there was a cheap, easy way to copy such fancy stuff. So here are my pendants. (At least the ones that turned out) Maybe you can share at your work party today.” These are awesome!

Music – ℜ𝔦𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔡 ℭ𝔬𝔢𝔲𝔯 𝔡𝔢 𝔏𝔦𝔬𝔫 – 𝔐𝔲𝔰𝔦𝔠𝔞 𝔐𝔢𝔡𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔞𝔩𝔢 – Ensemble: Alla Francesca
Album: Richard Cœur De Lion
Video: (read the info)

The ensemble “Alla Francesca” in this work performs music from the time of Richard the Lionheart, including the famous “Ja Nuns Hons Pris”, written by Riccardo himself during his imprisonment in Dürnstein Castle. In this video I have selected some photos of three very important castles in the life of Richard I of England: the first (which appears from 0:00 to 35:54) is the famous Château-Gaillard, the historic and majestic fortress built by Riccardo between 1196-1198, during the war against the king of France Philippe Auguste; the second castle (from minute 35:54 to 45:00) is that of Dürnstein, where Richard was imprisoned on his return from the third crusade. Finally, from minute 45:00 to 51:14, there is Châlus Chabrol, a fortress that Richard besieged in 1199 and where he died for an arrow shot from the walls while the king supervised the siege. Richard’s bowels are now buried right in the chapel of Châlus Chabrol, his heart is in Rouen while his body rests in the abbey of Fontevrault together with those of his parents, Henri II and Aliénor d’Aquitaine inside a splendid effigy from which his face can be clearly distinguished and that in this video I left in transparency under all the photographs as if he were a king who finally rests after a life of battles, songs, intrigues …
The ensemble “Alla Francesca” has chosen the stupendous abbey of Fontevrault to record this splendid musical work dedicated to Riccardo; I am thrilled to know that the echoes of these melodies, certainly familiar to the king, have resounded among the vaults of Fontevrault once again, 797 years after Riccardo’s death, right next to him.
PS: the miniature that appears at the end I found it instead from a manuscript (circa 13th century) and there is represented King Richard during his imprisonment in Dürnstein and next to him the moment of his death, pierced by an arrow, in Châlus Chabrol.
