inspected by a warranted marshal (armored or rapier depending on the
activity) before participating in combat at each event, practice or
other official activity.

15. B.	Weapon Inspections must be done by the marshal in charge of each
bout.  Unless the marshals have some method of marking already inspected
weapons they must inspect weapons before each bout.  For simple swords,
these checks should be extremely brief.  Marshals should pay more
attention to padded weapons and thrusting tips.

regulation in the SCA Marshal's Handbook.

18. H.	Greatswords must have either one or two edges.  These edges must

These additions are things almost everyone has been doing all along but
not incorporated in the procedures.

should not be someone who regularly fights or trains with the candidate.

46. I.	Marshals.  Neither of the marshals may be someone who regularly
