Our dedicated bowyer Master Yumi (Jaap) told me there were such
things, and that bows of old were strong enough to take last stand
desperate use. I can see if I was being over-run, that it might not be
a bad thing...I just wondered if there was more research around to

Greetings from Solveig! The Pennsic University lost track of the following class and it is not being listed in the Pennsic Site Book, but will appear in the online listings and the Pennsic Independent. The question is whether or not to move the class out of the private camp and into one of the Pennsic University tents which the Pennsic class coordinator just offered to do. One problem is that this is a performance class and could possibly make for a bad neighbor to adjoining tents. In any case, not being in the Pennsic book is a big bummer in terms of attendance. I am concerned that nobody will show up as the class will not be in the Pennsic book. What do you think?
