Official siege activity at Pennsic 50 will be limited to the Main Battlefield. In case of disputes, the Pennsic 50 Marshal-in-Charge will make the final call.
All Siege Marshals must wear eye protection, such as protective shatterproof eye-wear or a helm. Siege marshals should wear a standard black marshal's tabard and carry a marshal's staff. If you are going to marshal in armor then wear a marshal's tabard over the armor. If wearing a helmet, a drape or other distinctive marking is required to differentiate you from a fighter on the field.

See the Pennsic University Class Schedule for siege-related classes.
LOCATION CHANGE - Siege engine inspections will take place in the Southeast corner of the battlefield per usual. However, siege projectile inspections will take place at the Siege Tent at the West end of the row of Marshals' tents.
All siege engines wishing to participate in official marshal activities at Pennsic 50 must be inspected during one of the official inspection times. Siege projectiles are welcome during the official inspection times, with re-inspection following any battle that includes siege. All projectiles must have the day's inspection paint.
Siege inspection will take place on the South Battlefield during the middle weekend:
Get your engines and structures inspected at Pennsic early, so that if you have a problem you will have time to get it fixed and re-inspected. Inspection hours will close on time. Do not expect any pre-battle inspections of engines or munitions to be available. Test your engine and inspect all ammunition before you bring it to Pennsic. Check all of your gear: make sure all of your equipment, bolts, rocks, ropes, string, cables, engine, frame, and wheels, etc. are in good order.
