      Ok some points need to be clarified
      We do not have a time limit on making it across the field we just want to see a range walk with u having a chirurgeon bag and being able to make it from one side to the other at all.
      And the lifting a bale of hay is resonable as it can be raised with the legs as would be the proper way to do it anyway. Ok, maybe toss is a bad word. 'Move' the haybale a distance is more like what we do.And the toss is only meaning you have to be able to able to move it enough to to send it out of your hand either end over end or in an arc. And we did not say how far it has to go as there is no distance. 
      And the ?s will be about SCA melee rules, chirurgeon policy & how & when to mve certin types of pts.
