New Lochac Fencing Handbook – 1 May 2021
To the members of the Lochac Fencing community, greetings.
Today, being the First Day of May A.S. 56, Their Majesties have proclaimed new rules for fencing in the Kingdom of Lochac.
The Lochac Fencing Combat Handbook is available in HTML and PDF versions at the SCA NZ Wiki.
All fencers and marshals are instructed to familiarise themselves with the new rules.
This marks the end of a long process of change, and I appreciate people’s patience while getting this done. I especially thank my Deputy, Master James, our Kingdom Earl Marshal, and numerous members of the community who commented during the drafting process.
Yours in Service
