Kom heil og sael!

  First I will have a sign up sheet at troll for authorizations.  If you are
needing to be authorized in any form of heavy combat ( Fiber Spear, Glaive,
siege weapons, marshaling or combat archery) please indicate on the sigh up
sheet.  I will make the time to have classes on these if need be, even for 1
person.   Now on to other buisness...

The fighting for the weekend looks like this.

Sat Morn.  Cattle raids:   Merchants are taking thier cattle to market.  You
can be gaurds or Bandits.  At the market there are the Kings Gaurd to protect
the market from bandit scum, lol.  This is a town battle, with real buildings
and all.  There is a permanent village constucted inside the walls.

front battles, field battles, bridge battle, and maybe some suprises.

Arrow supplies:

edge, depending on design used)
strapping tape to attach APD, head
electrical tape (or more strapping tape) for the body of the arrow (1"
electrical tape is ideal - only 1 seam)

tapered one end) disks, center drilled 1/2"
1/2" closed cell foam (most commonly camp pads), cut into 1 1/4" disks (find a
