So that all throwers from all kingdoms can participate, we will be using the Society Thrown Weapon Rules rather than rules of the Middle, East, or Æthelmearc.
In addition, please note these items for Pennsic War 48:
All throwers must have footwear that covers the soles of their feet, although closed-toe footwear is recommended.
The minimum age to throw is 5 years of age.
Youths under 18 need to be registered at the range by a parent or legal guardian before they throw for the first time. The parent or legal guardian must stay at the range with those under 12 at all times. Once registered, those 12 and older can be at the range without a parent or legal guardian.
Pennsic Thrown Weapons does not provide loaner equipment. Individual throwers MAY choose to loan out equipment at their discretion.
The marshals are always willing to teach new people to throw. There is a small "teaching" range available for classes and teaching only. If a contest is in progress, this range can be used to teach beginners.
THE SCA PROHIBITS HARASSMENT AND BULLYING OF ALL INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS. Participants engaging in this behavior are subject to appropriate sanctions. If you are subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, or if you become aware of anyone being harassed or bullied, contact a seneschal, President of the SCA, or your Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.
