Subject: [SCA-Archery] Keeping safe; Was: Newbie Help?
With all this expensive gear, how do you keep them safe at events? I
realize that in the SCA you can trust most people, but there are always
those that you can't or shouldn't.
I have an antique Bear Tartar from '69 that is not terribly expensive,
but it is an exceptional bow, and I hate leaving it anywhere as it is
my favorite. I don't like leaving it in a hot car, either.
Any ideas for keep gear safe?
