I agree that authorization for building combat arrows is a bad idea. How
ever starting with the top KEM, KAM and the reagional AM's we need to make
sure that all archery inspectiog marshals know how to inspect combat arrows
and what is leagle in Ansteorra.
What is leagle in Ansteorra? Are we going to alow all SCA approved APD's?
If the KAM is at a "war" he should be setting the standard and leading the
way, if the KAM is not there then the reagional of the reagion or a reagiona
from an other reagion should be leading not questioning some one for
checking equipment.

Not every one has web acces and thouse of us that do can not acces all
sightes. The designes that are approved need to be made avalible in a
printed format.
Leadership starts at the top and by demstration not at the bottom.
