        Sir Jon,

        A question for you. I do not necessarily consider "Siege" and "Combat Archery" as non-rattan activities. Fundamentally, practitioners of those activities need rattan combatants as targets. Can you explain your rationale for separating those from the rattan numbers?

        Also, do the rattan numbers from the SEM include those people, or exclude? (Are they being counted twice?)

        The numbers for non-rattan martial participants were obtained from the 

        society deputies and the kingdom officers, except for the numbers for 

        target which were obtained only from the kingdom deputies.

        The numbers for heavy rattan, armored, participants were obtained from the SEM.

        Heavy rattan, armored, participants–2011

         TOTAL            10,234

         

        While some people are authorized in more that one weapon form, there is no way for determining or separating those numbers out. With that in mind, it is evident that there are a large number of people in the SCA who take part in non-rattan combat activities.
         
         
        Non-rattan participant numbers were up approximately 954 from 2009.
         
        Heavy rattan, armored, participants were down approximately 1,272 from 2009.

          Just so I understand your numbers, are you taking in the large amount of crossovers between the rapier, target archery and CA communities? Aengus O Nolan
