From The Society Seneschal, Regarding The Newcomer Token Issue

This originally appeared on the Calontir Facebook Group

Hiya all. I wanted to give a shout out regarding the stellar work your kingdom seneschal is doing. It has been a pleasure working with him. I wanted to appologize for the confusion regarding your kingdom’s excellent idea re Guest Passes. Back in July 2013 I gave the KingSen the go ahead. Then in mid Feb 2014 at the Seneschal’s & Exchequer’s Symposium based on a group discussion with the assembled Kingdom Echequers there were some concerns regarding inurement and if this could effect the SCA’s tax exempt status. At Gulf Warsthis last March the SocExch and I worked out a plan to make a version of a guest pass program doable. I will be presenting it to the Board this week at the in person board meeting. Thanks for your patience.
Best wishes,
