Brewers and Vintners Resolution (FWD by Magnus)

Poster: rmhowe <magnusm@ncsu.edu>

(Passed on by Magnus from Hordenet. I spared you guys the 
heavier prior stuff and just passed that to the Kingdom
Seneschal. Morgan and Siobhan have been working to get a 
better alcohol policy since the last BOD announcement.)

Attached is happier news folks! Please share this around!

While all is not totally in the clear, things are MUCH MUCH

Yours for STILL enjoying alcohol at events with my buds,

Siobhan O'Neill


I have had some significant communications with the SCA's Executive
Assistant, Duke Andrew of Riga, who has also been communicating with
another SCA member who is a corporate attorney in California.
Apparently our information has matched up well enough that the
policy announced after the Kingdom Seneschals and Exchequers
Symposium is being revised.


The prohibition against guild newsletters publishing recipes will
be rescinded.

Gifts of alcoholic beverages will be allowed ONLY from one
individual to another.  Gifts are not to be made from or to groups.

If alcohol is provided or served at an "official" or group party,
it may not be purchased with group funds, and all federal, state, local,
and site laws, rules, and regulations must be complied with,
including age restrictions, licensing requirements, and dryness of site.

B&V competitions will be allowed as long as all federal, state,
local, and site laws, rules, and regulations must be complied with.

Guilds will not be required to divest their funds.  However, these
funds may not be used to purchase supplies or ingredients from which
alcoholic beverages are made.  They may be used to support
newsletters, purchase reference materials, etc.


Group funds to purchase alcoholic beverages or ingredients for same.

Donations of alcohol by or to an SCA entity.

Service of alcohol to underage minors.

Provision of alcohol as part of an official activity (such as King
buying kegs for party he is hosting at the Royal Encampment --
holding a party at which alcohol, which is donated, happens to be
served, is OK as long as all federal, state, local, and site laws,
rules, and regulations are followed).


If you had planned to write a letter, I'm afraid it is no longer

I expect that by the time I return from Lillies War, the new
announcement will be circulating.

BTW, I was told by one of the persons present that the proposal was
given to them more as a fair accompli than as a topic for
discussion, contrary to the impression I had been given when first
presented with Mistress Tetchubah's letter and the related
information.  I apologize to the Kingdom Seneschals and Exchequers
for this misrepresentation.

And once again, if anybody wishes to circulate this message
further, feel free.
