Excellent point, Tivar! :O)

The City of Arlington has graciously set aside their
"no flying objects other than poodles or frisbees"
ordinance for us for one day, which is Passage of
Arms. The "Live Weapons" I was speaking of were swords
with sharp edges, i.e. anything other than rapiers.
They didn't like the idea of axe or knife throwing,
which I did ask about. It was hard enough getting them
to agree to archery.

Does that answer your question?

Have a great day!
