While most teaching content is not firmlyset as yet, Master Trahaearn has agreed to do his complete run-through ofthe Inns of Court dances (not to be missed!).  Most of us will be in modernclothes and comfortable shoes for the teaching sessions, but garb is welcomeduring instruction, too.  Some folks will likely change into (simple) garbfor the Caroso Ball.  RE: COVID practices:– Per Kingdom policy updated on March 15, proof of COVID vaccination (or anegative COVID test within 72 hours), and the collection of contact tracinginformation, are no longer required.– We encourage those that feel more comfortable wearing masks to do so, evenif no longer required by modern or society authorities. Also those whochoose to wear masks for the comfort of others are encouraged to do so.– We will have hand sanitizer available, since we often hold hands indances.An important note from the SCA: Although the SCA complies with allapplicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants,we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases duringin-person events.
