All local, State and Federal guidance applies, including SCA corporate rules. Read policies in site copy or contact Event Steward for more information
Participants are respectfully encouraged to wear masks outside their encampment as an act of chivalry to significantly lower risk for children & other vulnerable folk and lower community anxieties. Masks required REGARDLESS of vaccination status for any and all activities where social distancing is not probable/possible (Court, watching activities, doing group activities, waiting in line, in the restrooms, etc.)
Follow all State of OR/WA & CDC guidance, see rules for "cohorts" (encampments/whom you eat/sleep with) in large family say or overnight camp events. We're not asking who is vaccinated/not vaccinated. Just passing on the guidance. Please note CDC guidance requests "that campers, their families, and camp staff follow guidance for travelers in the 14 days prior to camp arrival to reduce exposure to COVID-19. Ask unvaccinated campers and staff members to engage in a 2-week prearrival quarantine that includes physical distancing, mask-wearing when not at home, avoiding unnecessary travel, and refraining from indoor social gatherings with people outside of their households."
Children under 14 must be under direct supervision of their parent/guardian at all times: Children should stay in their cohorts at all times. This translates to keeping kids with you; or scheduling play dates within your "cohort" of 30 or less vs. free range.
Site owners and site contract requires a "social distancing monitor" to roam around and remind you to social distance. Be prepared for such.
Smoking allowed in campsites only. Cigarette butts should be fully extinguished, preferably with water, to prevent fire risks.
There will be dumpsters for your trash. Please leave the site in cleaner, better condition than you found it.
There will be hand sanitizer and wash stations available near activities for participant use.
A merciless cleaning gnome will be closing the bathrooms at frequent, regular intervals to sanitize them; don't risk waiting till the last minute to relieve yourself or you may find yourself testing your bladder/sphincter strength.
Public restrooms and covered areas are considered indoor, public spaces. State guidelines require masks while you are in them. Mom says, "wash your hands".
Gate volunteers are precious and shall be treated like nobility while on duty. Got an issue? Take it up with the Seneschal.
Fire ban most likely, given NOAA predictions, so no fires and no unattended flames, candles or stoves.
Area closest to toilets and front parking areas reserved for persons with physical accessibility challenges on first come, first reserved basis.
Most of the site has sidewalks or paved areas
Large groups please contact event steward to reserve space. All others claim space when you arrive. Note: there ARE isolated areas as well as a common field in which to camp.
RV camp parking spots will be available, but not hookups.
Sign herald on site likely.
All SCA participants must follow modern law, both State and Federal.
Pets must be on a leash and under control of the owner at all times
