Good evening Outlands!

As explained in the video announcement (YoutTube link), the Outlands, in consultation with the Kingdom seneschal will adopt the society boards covid vaccine policy effective October 1st, 2021. While the timing is unfortunate (with Crown Tournament happening this weekend) We believe that this is the best path forward for the Outlands, to keep everyone as safe as possible while we continue to battle this horrific pandemic.

There is still time to get covid tested if you are not fully vaccinated, however if you feel that this new policy changes your plans for the weekend a full refund will be granted. Again We apologize for the timing but it was outside of Our control. If you have questions regarding the policy itself or have commentary on the policy please feel free to reach out to the Society at SCA.org, they will also have a FAQ sheet about the policy available on the website. If you have questions about how this policy applies to the Outlands please feel free to contact either Ourselves (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Christine, the Kingdom Seneschal (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

To further keep everyone safe We are also requiring mask indoors starting October 1st, 2021. Many counties are already requiring them for indoor activity and We feel compelled to follow the science and also require them. Activity is defined as any official SCA activity (practices, business meetings, A&S gatherings, etc) We took an oath to protect and defend the Outlands at our coronation and We are going to continue to let science not feelings guide these decisions.

We are excited to celebrate the next chapter of Outlands history this weekend. Please travel safely so We can celebrate with you!

We remain yours in service,

Béla and Nerissa

King and Queen of the Outlands
