Yes here we go again, it seems as if this discussion will never go away.
Yes the IKAC is a private competition, the sponsor will make up the rules on
the divisions. You as the shooting archer has a decision to make. Do you
want to shoot this competition or not. If you choose to shoot it the you
are required to compete by the established rules.
As for the period division Those of you who want to shoot with a period ELB
or period crossbow that is your choice. Those of you who want to shoot with
modern equipment that is your choice.
For those of you who keep saying if I could find a selfbow and the selfnock
arrow I would shoot the period division but, I don't have the money to
afford the bow. Sometime ago a member of the list posted this link.
www.woodbows.com I went to this site and found ELB's for $89.95 each these
bows are made to your specifications. The Gentle that owns the shop is
willing to work with you so you have the bow you need. I will be receiving
my bow during the next couple of days. I will post a decription of the bow
after I receive it. I pray this bow will last the next couple of years so I
can have time to learn to make my own.
