I have been using the Thistle points since Leon was Kingdom Archery Marshal,
and somewhere in my records is an authorization from him.  I have been using
them for over a year, and have never had an archery marshal question them.
They are being used a lot in the south portions of the kingdom.  They are
SCA legal, so I assume that the SCA insurance will cover them.
