Sir Jon and SCA Archers!
I feel this is a very worthy endeavor, therefore I will throw in my name to help in whatever manner
I can for the promotion of Archery. May I suggest starting an informal Archery newsletter committee
to steer the first edition layout, logos, guidelines, etc? If there is someone who now publishes a local
newsletter to guide us, I would be happy to do the leg work.
I have been building arrows from bare shafts, spine testing, matching, and tuning which could be a
series of articles, also I have been building "board bows" from buying the boards to the tillering process,
and this also could be a series of articles.
Yours In Service,
Ld. Francois de Lions

I have learned that the BoD is considering acting on a request I sent then last July. This request was to set up the sca electronic newsletter site to allow society wide newsletters for the various SCA activities such as martial, arts and sciences and service, etc. Of particular interest to us is an archery newsletter. This is in addition to the supplemental newsletters that kingdoms can put out. Changes will have to be made to the web site to allow this to be done.
So, since this is likely to happen, we should consider what the archery community can do make this work. We will need a group to manage and edit the
newsletter and to encourage submissions to
it. It can have information on archery events,current scores for society wide competitions, short useful bits of information and reviews of suppliers and books as well as articles, photos and archery art. And anything else that would be appropriate. It would contain both target archery and combat archery information. The information in such a newsletter would be useful to many archers and could also demonstrate a sense of archery community.
I hope we have some people in this group that are interested in working on such a project. I can
provide some articles for it. However, I have no background in publishing newsletters.
Please crosspost this to any local archery groups and give them subscription information for this group.
Change is a function of the Universe, embrace it.
