You can read the Earl Marshal's missive below:
I have two important items to address in this months letter so please ensure you read the following in its entirety.
First item: After discussions with numerous armoured combatants I have decided to ban the Mandrake 2” rubber thrusting tips on fiberglass shafts in Ealdormere. There have been too many documented instances where the Mandrake tips have entered into the face grills of combatants. Many other Kingdoms have banned them as well as the upcoming Pennsic War. Also, this issue is still under discussion at the Society Level. They will still be authorized for use on great weapons as well as rattan spears. 2” Foam thrusting tips on fiberglass shafts will be authorized on an experimental basis. If you choose to use one please ensure you have the Marshal In Charge of the event inspect it and declare it to any potential opponents before you enter combat.
Second item: Twice previously I have asked for all Marshals of the Field (MOF) to provide me and the MOL their Membership numbers and expiry dates, as of this date less than 30 MOF have complied. If your name is not on the list below (Please excuse the lack of titles or full names, trying to save space) you are now in abeyance and not a Warranted Marshal in the
. Anyone who has yet to submit the required information has until 22 Apr 2015. After that the new Warrant roster will be presented to TRM at Coronation for signature. If your name is not on the Warrant roster at that time you will be required to go through the Marshal in Training process again if you wish to become warranted once again. NOTE: Group Marshals have already provided the required information during the last Domesday and MITs are not required to provide membership information. Kingdomof Ealdormere

If you are wondering why this is necessary I will repeat what was said in the November Tidings. The Society requires all Officers of the Society to be Members of the Society in good standing. The current warrant list does not document this. It is my intention to update this information and keep track of it from here on.
Thank you for your understanding and compliance.
