Below is our plan for now through May 31, 2021 per the 2020-12-04 Resolution Continuation Letter -

The Northshield Plan for June 1, 2020 and beyond addressing the April 1, 2020 announcement of a Resolution to Lift Suspension of In-Person Activity in the SCA as of June 1st, 2021 ( will be posted soon.
Northshield Guidelines through June 1, 2021
1. All groups will follow federal (including CDC), province, state and local mandates, recommendations, and guidelines regarding meeting sizes and emergency measures. If you are planning an in person meeting or practice, please check your local guidelines for size limits.
2. At this time, the kingdom limits for maximum size for an outside in-person meeting or practice is capped at 50 people including spectators. The maximum size for an indoor in-person meeting or practice is capped at 15 people including spectators. In-person activities are limited to only people in your local group. If your group is in an area where federal (including CDC), province, state and local mandates, recommendations, and guidelines regarding meeting sizes call for smaller groups then you are required to use the smaller sizes. If your area allows for larger meeting sizes the kingdom rules apply.
3. Please follow your local government guidelines for group gatherings. Masks for all attendees are required. They should be worn properly and cover the nose and mouth. It is the attendee’s responsibility to provide their own mask. Anyone who has an underlying condition that may increase risk should not attend an event until the CDC has deemed it appropriate, please use your best judgement in these matters. Please practice social distancing and remain the suggested distance (6 ft) from one another when gathering. The meeting or practice organizer must provide a sign in sheet and all attendees must sign in. These sign in sheets should be scanned and sent to
4. No food or beverages may be supplied by the SCA. If people want to bring food and beverages they are able to but they must not be shared between people who do not live in the same residence.
5. Archery, Thrown Weapons, and Equestrian activities can continue outdoors as long as they meet the requirements of items 1, 2, & 3.
6. Starting on May 1, Armored and Rapier combat shall be allowed as long as participants wear masks over their nose and mouth and against their face 100% of the time, unless they have stepped away to get a drink. These masks must be worn under your helmet or fencing mask and be touching your face. Participants must maintain social distancing of 6 feet apart unless actively fighting. Melee is not allowed at this time due to social distancing. Youth combat is not allowed at this time. This will be revisited as CDC guidelines and as other similar activities change their recommendations.
If conditions warrant these restrictions may be tightened or loosened. Please continue to remain safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing you all again at the first safe opportunity.
Thank you,
