Item 4: Add to the EH Rules Clarifications sheet:
When the Champion declares a weapon illegal during the course of a
weapons check, they may apply a sticker or piece or masking tape with
the word "illegal" clearly printed on it to the weapon. The sticker
is an aid to clearly identify weapons previously declared illegal, so
as to prevent the accidental (or intentional) further use of said
weapons. The sticker is not to be removed unless the weapon is
rebuilt. Note that absence of a sticker does not make a weapon legal,
the actual determination of weapon legality is the Champion's call on
a weapon. Also note that as per corpora ALL weapons and equipment
should be checked for safety and legality, there is no assumption of
legality.

previously deemed illegal and unfeasible to be made legal as
determined by the Champion is discovered or is newly declared illegal
and unfeasible to be made legal as determined by the Champion, the
owner will be asked to remove it from the vicinity of an Amtgard
Function. A weapon previously deemed illegal that can feasibly be
made legal as determined by the Champion may be brought out to an
Amtgard function for the express purpose of rebuilding said weapon.

Items 9a and 9b are on an emergency Althing on November 12 at MS.

alternate wording for a proposal. If any original item has alternate
wording proposed for it during this week it becomes a multi-option
vote using an Instant Run-Off system. One of the options for the vote
must always be 'No Change'. A typical example of such a vote would be
Option A: Do x in y way.
Option B: Do x in z way.
Option C: No Change.
A final Althing agenda including final language for all proposed
alternate wording items must be published via the club website and
mailing list no later than Noon on the Saturday at least 13 days
prior to the Althing. Items omitted from the list shall not be
eligible for a vote until the next regularly scheduled Althing."

"All Althing agenda items must include the name of the club member
sponsoring the amendment."

system" to section five subsection d item 2.
