So, let me see if I have this straight: If I >publish in the local
canton or baronial newsletter that we are having a >4th of July picnic
and fighter practice at Billy Bob Joe Don's place, >for SCA folk, this is
considered an official event per IIA? Covered by >Society insurance?
>I think I'm floundering in legaleese. HELP!
.and thus we arrive at my original point, which is, how can we define a
function to be "official" enough to be covered by insurance yet "unofficial"
enough to allow unauthorized/non-dues-paying combatants to fight? Perhaps an
explicit definition of where practices (and demos) fall in the grand scheme
of these things is necessary.

[Well, now, an' begosh and begorra, 'twould seem to my failing eyes that
if the "event" [published or not, legal or not] has two guys that have
their armor there and want to fight, they're going to fight and nobody
can really stop them unless they constitute a hazard to others, say by
fighting in the middle of the street.
"Official enough to be covered by insurance" is fairly simple, as has
been previously stated...[Of course, with all the opinions on insurance,
I'm not sure that being covered really matters...
"Unofficial enough to allow unauthorized/non-paying people to fight" is
also fairly simple. If a person wants to fight and isn't authorized,
then I'd be willing to bet that as long as that person isn't asked to
fight in a tourney or melee, everything's fine, i.e., practice
one-on-one only. I can't really see any benefits gained by having the
person fight in a melee until they're authorized anyway, and tourneys
only happen at official SCA events, but if it's an official tourney,
then unauthorized fighters aren't allowed to compete.
[The Three States of Being, as Pertaining to Heavy Combat:
1. Official Tournament [there's an oxymoron]
2. Melee [unauthorized fighters probably shouldn't be here]
3. Other [This covers any practicing you do]
Well, there's my $.02...
