Excuse me Mam, but the flinging is a competition, as such the competition pieces should be uniform, :-) The pattern We want used is from the 'original' spangs, from the first Beltaine they were introduced, from a tracing of one Caitlin and I used there after,and in the beginning it was the only 'authorized' pattern, and they were inspected for uniformity before they were allowed to be thrown... I am so sorry that this has hit a nerve with you, :-(, Peoplke may make frogs anyway they wish, but if they wish to Fling thier personal spang in competition, theywill need to use the pattern specified. or use the ones provided for the competition...'Stacia :=)

really demand that everyone make them from just the pattern you prefer.
There is no rule or law specifying the exact pattern for a spang. The whole
purpose of Beltane is to celebrate spring and to have fun. Requiring that
others use only your pattern is less than generous and not in the spirit of
the game we strive so hard to play with chivalry and honor. As long as they
are roughly the same size and shape what does it matter?
