- Hello again all,
I was just reading James Cunningham's last entry about handmade
arrow shafts and the germ of an idea came to me for next Pennsic. How
about an inter-Kingdom novelty competition, where we shoot at only true
medieval targets (straw rings, wands, etc.) but the twist is that every
archer must have made ALL of the tackle that they are shooting, from
scratch. The only exception will be the points(handmade medieval style
points may shoot great, but they are often hell on target butts). Bows,
arrows, tabs or gloves,bracers and even quivers, all made by the archer.
Instead of Middle and allies against East and allies, let's make it
where each archer shoots for the glory of his or her Kingdom.
We'd need a bunch of nice prizes for different categories and
the complexion of the shoot would have to be decided, but I think it
would be a fun idea. God willin' and the creek don't rise, I'll be at
Pennsic next year for a bit longer than last. Does anyone fancy the
Respectfully, with spokeshave in hand,
