I will take up the torch Laebeth, unless someone else out there has already accomplished a similar task and compiled such a listing of Novelty shoots ...???

To my great disappointment, I had to step out of the current Middle Ages to
tend to some critical events in my mundane life, and I never compiled the
information I gathered. I have loads of notes and EMs from folks;
unfortunately, not many pictures to go with them.
I would love to get back to the project, but I fear it may be a while before
I can work it in among my fledgling fletching business, mundane work, and my
family (who have been the recipients of my absence). If someone would like
to take up the torch, I'd be happy to pass along the information I gathered.
Otherwise, y'all will have to wait for me a bit longer! ;>
Best to you and yours,

I am writing as I found this post when I did a search for Novelty
Shoots in the past missives of the SCA-Archery Group. I was thinking
along exactly the same lines! Trying to find a single source (book or
such) of novelty shoots and if unable to call for submissions and
create one myself! How is your project going? I would dearly love to
get a copy of whatever you have!
