Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Netting
- I've used blankets on ranges before. Anything which gives when the arrow
hits it wil work fairly well. This means that you don't want to anchor the
bottom of whatever you use.
The webbing which you see at Pennsic traps the arrows in the webbing. I'm
not sure who you would speak to regarding the webbing but I would assume
that the Pennsic staff who provides this service would have the information.

Perhaps, but a regular style half-circle doesn't work. I have been
playing with some other styles (you probably guessed that)and have a
prototype that seems to work - even found some material that sorta
looks like feathers. I'll keep you posted off-line, or here if
anyone else in interested. Actually it will be cool and servicable
even if you are not an archer. And it will be semi-perod, being a
modified Gallic Coat.
