Pennoncel was the name the official newsletter of the East Coast chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism.

From the fourth issue:
A FEW PEOPLE HAVE ASKED what the name of this newsletter, PENNONCEL, means. A pennoncel is a small banner, or pennon, which seemed appropriate to our subordinate position to the Official Magazine of the main branch of the Society in the West. [1]
From the ninth issue:

May women fight in the Tournament?

No, for various reasons. It was tried on the West Coast, and the results were not judged worth the trouble. However, a number of ladies are attempting to form a women's fencing group which will present exhibition matches, and it is possible that women may be allowed, as they are on the West Coast, to participate in archery events.
