Gleann Abhann Law Regarding Children
Section 9.05 Children
(a) Any child under the age of legal consent attending any official function, must be in the company of a parent or legal guardian or have a letter of parental consent which designates an adult in attendance as responsible for the child and consent for the child to be treated in the case of a medical emergency, as well as a signed standard waiver.
(b) All waivers and letters of designation must be collected by the Autocrat or designated representative before a child may be admitted to site.
(c) The adult in charge of a child is responsible for any and all acts of the child.
(d) Children under the age of 12 must be within the sight or voice range of a designated adult, or responsible teenager – age 15 or older, at all times. Failure to do so may result in sanctions ranging from expulsion from site to notification of mundane authorities.
Sight or voice range will be determined by the Gulf Wars Staff. We realize that this is not necessarily the law in other kingdoms, but it is the law here and it will be enforced.

Youth Activities have been divided into three main areas. Please check the site book and announcement boards for schedules and places.
Young Apprentice Series
Check the class schedules and watch the herald’s board for classes. Teens should look through the main class schedule for topics that interest them. Teachers who welcome younger students have marked their classes as such. Keep an eye out for special hands on sessions at Artisan’s Row especially designed for teens. Also the Page School will have nightly gatherings just for teens. All activities last from 7 pm to 11 pm.
Tuesday – SCA 101
