One might want to verify this with the Corporate office or the BoD member
responsible for insurance (Sir Edward Zifran, Viscount [E.F. Morril]).

I don't think the SCA insurance policy protects SCA members individually.  I
think it protects the SCA as a corporate entity.

The argument I have heard in the past for "Pay-to-Fight" was that the
insurance policy is mostly so expensive because of the fighting we do.  If
we didn't do fighting it would not be so expensive; therefore the fighters
should pay their share. (I heard this in the West.  I don't know if that's
the reason Atlantia has Pay-to-Fight.)

I've never verified one way or another that the above arguement is valid.

Anyone interested could contact Milpitas or Sir Edward.  The addresses are
in the Acorn (which I don't have here).  Maybe the contact info could be put
on the web page for those who are Web-blessed but Acorn-challenged. As I am
Acorn-blesed (and currently Acorn-less) but Web-challenged, I can't go check!
