I will double check the policy but I believe that if an individual is charged a reduced fee for the event, they do not pay the NMS. That was put in to place to keep from having to charge children the NMS which would add to the cost of an event for families.
So, if the 9 month old is charged a reduced (or even not charged a fee at all) the NMS should not be charged. By the way, if the event is free to everyone, the NMS should also not be charged : )
But, when I get a free moment today, I will look up the exact wording.

Subject: [SCA-AE] Side question on non-member surcharge
I was rather surprised at a recent event when my friend was intially asked for the $3 nonmember surcharge for her nine-month-old son.
I believe this was merely confusion on the part of the well-meaning volunteer at the tollner table as to why a baby would not need a blue card -- the SCA.org website says that a family membership is for one adult and "any minor children 21 and under residing at their address" -- and the volunteer decided not to demand the surchage once my friend politely questioned the practice.
However, this is making me wonder...
Has anyone else heard of a new policy to charge for infants or use the non-member surcharge in this way?
