Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Archery at Egil's - Come for one day or the entire weekend!
- You are correct the society rules no NOT requires marshals to inspect
equipment, they only say that a marshal has the authority to do so and
gives the marshals the authority to reject any equipment that does not
meet the rules or that they deem unsafe.
This is in contrast to any combat equipment where the rules require an
inspection by a marshal.
