- Nov 8 8:38 PMHenrik;
Glad to have you back! I've been trying to make good use of the
quintain while you've been gone, I very much appreciate the loan of
I really, really like some of your ideas that you posted. Especially
the idea of the sheild on either a haybale, or a drum, which will
give both a difficult target to hit squarely, as well as a heavy
target to move very far! (Although I have to admit even punching
your quintain over the course of an afternoon, with as little
friction as it has, left my arm a tad sore... hitting something that
weighs in at a SIGNIFICANTLY higher mass ought to really get our arms
buffed up in no time!) Moving the sport to a level closer to the
reality of combat, while retaining a high safety factor, is a great
idea in my opinion.
BTW, drop me a line, and come out if you can some weekday if you have
one off, and we can set the quintain up and do some more practicing!
Thanks for the ideas, I hope that others find them as exciting as I
