Harassment/Bullying Policy

Hello All,

As many of you have seen the Society has created a new Harassment policy  (copied below the line)

Notice of this is still being tweeked, but for now the  statement at the bottom of the post must be posted at every SCA  sponsored  Event, Practice , and Gathering.

Officers (including Autocrats)  please use this form for reporting any incidents.  Please send it to myself and I will make sure it gets reported up the chain.

This information is also the Shire Seneschal page.

Thank you,

Matthias

The SCA Harassment and Bullying Policy

From the Society Seneschals Handbook:

XXIV. SOCIETY SENESCHAL POLICIES & INTERPRETATIONS

4. Harassment and Bullying
The SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups.

Harassment and bullying includes, but is not limited to the following:
offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual;
the display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner;
photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual;
inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying.
Participants violating these rules are subject to appropriate sanctions. If an individual feels subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, they should contact a seneschal, President of the SCA, or the Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman. If a participant of the SCA becomes aware that someone is being harassed or bullied, they have a responsibility pursuant to the SCA Code of Conduct to come forward and report this behavior to a seneschal, President of the SCA or Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

The following statement must be posted at gate/troll at every SCA event in a size large enough for people to see it as they enter our events.  This language must likewise be quoted in ALL site handouts at every event a site where a handout is made available.

THE SCA PROHIBITS HARASSMENT AND BULLYING OF ALL INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS.
Participants engaging in this behavior are subject to appropriate sanctions.
If you are subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, or if you become aware of anyone being harassed or bullied, contact a seneschal, President of the SCA, or your Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.

Defenders for 2016

Greetings

This past weekend at the Lovely Sommer Draw event held by the Barony of Bergental. It is a great local event with  Archery, Fencing, Fighting and other activities that I would encourage anyone to go to.   Before getting to announcing the Defenders, I would like to give a word of thanks to Lady Elvira, Lady Toi and whomever else helped with the day board, it was quite tasty.  Also I would like to thank Madame Perronnelle de Croy for her fine work with the Youth activities at the event.

With the blessing of Bergental, Quintavia picked  the Defenders from those who live within the shire’s borders and did the best in the respective tournament/competition.   Without further ado I present the Defenders for the 2016 year.

 

The Defenders of 2016

Award Winner
Arts & Sciences Lady Toi Poisson de Mortagne
Heavy List Baron Matthias Grunwald
Rapier Lord Gregor Mac Eoain
Archery Boyar Aleksei Dmitriev

Thank you again for everyone who pitched in, had fun, and in general made for a relaxing local event.
