At the Board meeting on October 15, 2011, the Board members covered
several item sof business that have been a very hot topic on some other
e-lists through the Society.
Specifically, the addressed the issue of same-gender leadership in the
SCA. They covered three areas:
1. Baronial leadership
2. A varience for a same-gender couple to enter a specific Crown Tourney
3. An amendment to Corpora to remove the same-gender ban in Royal Lists
You can read more about this at SCA - Today (take out the spaces)
I am aware that there are many people with many opinions about this
topic. The question of Baronial leadership has been ruled on and
same-gendered couples will be allowed to run and serve as leaders in a
The specific Crown Tourney had passed before the Board addressed the
issue and it was also decided that the only way TO address the issue is
to amend Corpora - bringing us to the third item.
The Board is looking for public comment. I fully expect to see
conversations about this on the AEthelmearc e-groups. It is one of the
most effective ways for us all to talk to each. I expect that not
everyone commenting will agree with each other.
Importantly, I expect everyone to be polite and courteous.
AEthelmearc has a reputation far and wide for being the 'nice' Kingdom
and I have faith that the marvelous people of this Kingdom will live up
to my expectations.
Thank you all.
YIS, Mistress Cori
