RE: [SCA-Archery] Going for the Gold- Guide to Pennsic Archery
- I have not one, but three copies. One will never leave my library, one is
in my big travelling archery kit box and the third will be available for
loans. Dirk did a marvelous job explaining how the ranges at Pennsic atop
"Mt. Aislinn" were properly laid out, the practical storage solutions in
use, and several excellent "how to" articles on such things as target
If Dirk wished to turn a profit on these, I personally would be willing to
pay $12 - 15 for a copy. That's about the price I would expect to see on it
at a retail store.
I really can not endorse this book strongly enough.
