Excuse me.  This implies that combat archery is relatively recent in the
SCA.  I've been playing for 20 years.  and combat archery has been around
for at least that long.  the Ansteorran war arrow is based on the Markland
arrow which is used by another recreation group which has been around almost
as long as we have.  Combat archery has become more popular in recent years
which is way there is now a push to regulate it to death so people won't
want to shoot anymore.
