Announcements

Dear Good People of Myrgan Wood,

We are disappointed to announce that this week’s practice is cancelled.
It has become apparent that outdoor gathering in the evening has come to a close for the season as the desire and dedication of our members has not ‘quite’ enough energy to raise the temperature to one that is safe and comfortable ☹.

Considering the state of the health care system as a result of the pandemic, after consulting with the seneschals and various others who regularly attend,
we have decided not to pursue an indoor practice site at this time.
It is our hope that, given some time, systems will recover enough for people to feel more comfortable gathering in somewhat larger numbers indoors soon.

In the mean time, in-person activities are not suspended the same way they were before, and so if small groups wished to gather for armoring sessions or archery or classes for example, that is possible and baronial communications are good tools to plan and coordinate such things.
Please remember that any SCA activity requires proof of vaccination or negative test (SCA Inc requirement), any indoor public space requires a mask (SHA requirement), and the barony has a zoom account that can be made available as well.

YIS,
Roxanne & Raoul

Hello all,
As you may have seen, the society has announced a policy regarding proof of vaccination or negative test results for all in-person activity and Avacal has implemented this policy.
What does that look like for Myrgan Wood practice/gathering and archery?

Last week’s practice under the lights worked really well. Based on discussions with the seneschals and previous informal discussions with people at practice, we will continue practicing outdoors for as long as the weather is reasonable. We will not seek an indoor practice site at this time.

So, for now, while we have been outside, we have been requiring everyone to provide contact tracing information and sign waivers when that is needed.
Now we will also ask everyone to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result within the previous 72 hours as per the SCA policy.
The fact that we asked and each person showed some kind of proof is all that is recorded. At this time masks are not required for outdoor gatherings by either Avacal or SHA, nor are there restrictions on the number of people who can gather. As always, we encourage everyone to be respectful of each other’s boundaries - maintain distance and wear a mask as you wish to.

You can read the SCA policy, and there is a link to frequently asked questions on the same page:

If anything is not clear, please ask questions.
In service,
Roxanne & Raoul
Baroness & Baron of Myrgan Wood
