New Guidelines for Flyers for Popular Chivalry

Kingdom Calendar for your event. Events not on the Official Kingdom

Kingdom Level Events will have two full page flyers, the month
before and the month of the event. Local events will have one halfpage
flyer published the month of the event, or the month before if
the event falls within the first 10 days of the month. Local stewards

- Name, email address and phone number of the event steward and reservations person (legal & SCA)
- If there is a fee, flyers must include: "Make checks payable to: SCA, Inc/group name" (Please note that Tennessee groups must instead include: "Make checks payable to: SCA-TN, Inc/group name" )
- Location of site including: site name, physical street address,
city, state and zip
- Directions to the site
- Time the event opens and closes

Use WHITE BACKGROUNDS and LINE DRAWING images for flyers.
Grayscale or color images and dark backgrounds do not work well and
may make your flyer unreadable. Do not use fonts smaller than 8 point.
9 point or larger is preferred. Chose fonts wisely. Some ornate fonts are
VERY hard to read when reproduced.
All local events must have a $5 fee for non-members, if there is a fee to
attend the event. If there is a discounted fee for minors, then nonmember
minors do not pay the $5 non-member fee. Please word your
flyers so that this is understood.
