>>I have heard that ballista spears have to pass javelin standers.
>Well, here are the javelin standards in the Ansteorra Participant's Handbook:
>C. Hand Thrown Projectiles:
>1. Hand thrown projectiles are those weapons such as javelins, throwing
>axes, hammers, boulders, rocks, etc..
>a. All hand thrown projectiles shall be constructed entirely with approved
>b. Hand thrown weapons shall not be constructed so as to flail or entangle,
>nor shall they be so large or heavy as to be hazardous when used.
>And that's all it says. Surely that doesn't mean I can use wooden shafts
>(like arrows)? Or do they have to be golf tubes? And I see nothing about
Actaully, I have a question,
If you DO make javelines out of wood ie like markland arrows, does this mean
they cannot be gleaned from the field like golf tubed ones do,
I think this is an excellent idea for three reasons.
1. it's safer to have them inspected
2. you'll get less silly sca golf tube flight,
3. Your opponents can't throw them back!!!!
