Looks like our friends in Trimaris are tking their archery a little more
personal. I wish all well that shoot at Warlord, and send my some good
scores to send in.

>Wow.  The response to my request for feedback on the possible elimination of
>fiberglass from the Period IKAC division was almost overwhelming.  To date
>I've read every single e-mail sent to me or to the SCA Archery mailing list,
>taking everyone's views into consideration.  I want to thank everyone for
>their participation.  I would also like to thank those who told me to hang
>in there.  Your posts were like a splash of cool water in an otherwise
>heated debate.  
>I want to address some issues that were brought up during the debate.  I
>don't consider myself "the powers that be."  I am one person who relies on
>dozens of volunteer range marshals around the Known World to help run a
>competition enjoyed by hundreds of archers.  Without their help there would
>be no IKAC.
>I do not make changes "on a whim."  If I did I would never have asked for
>feedback on proposed rule changes.  Majority acceptance by the SCA archery
>community will always be required before I will implement a major rule
>The fiberglass issue was not intended to be "mean."  When the Period IKAC
>division was first introduced the only requirement was no plastic nocks.
>Bonuses were given to those who used and made period equipment to encourage
>their use.  As the division matured and acquired a strong base of archers,
>the bonuses were dropped and the requirements for bow construction were
>enforced.  As more documentation, tools, bowyers, fletchers and teachers are
>available to us, the requirements for the Period IKAC division will continue
>to mature.  There will always be growing pains, but I will try to keep them
>to a minimum.
>With all that said, fiberglass will not be eliminated from the Period IKAC
>division next season nor in the foreseeable future.
>Period Crossbows:  I'm looking for documentation for sights on period
>crossbows.  Some have suggested "Die Armbrust."  Page references are fine,
>but I can't always get a copy of the book.  Photocopies can be scanned and
>sent to ikac at or c/o Jonathan Satcher, 23000 Edmonds Way #201,
>Edmonds, WA, 98020, USA.  Thanks!
