Yeah those things are fun to play with. I had found a supplier of "period" whistlers last year and ordered afew of them. They come from england. Always had visions of loosing one on the start of a final round. I personally think the ping pong ball ones scream louder however :)

Greetings fellow archers,
The other day, while looking at the SCA archery page, I stumbled across a 
nifty article on how to make arrows into whistling arrows using little more 
than ping pong balls and an Exacto knife. How cool? And, I'm here to tell you, 
the silly things shriek like a bottle rocket. Want to lure more folks down to 
the archery range at your next event? Loose a couple volleys of these bad boys 
and you'll have a crowd on hand in a hurry ;-)
Shot my first official period division scores with my new 60 lb. hickory 
longbow this morning. A 186 IKAC, and a 74 Royal Round, are okay, I guess, (need 
more practice) but I was still plenty tickled with the way my home made bow 
performed. Got two more bows in the works, and a new hickory stave just arrived 
for a third. Now if I can just come up with a use for all the dadgum 
Hope you all had a chance to get out on this excellent spring day and shoot 
some scores. What a beautiful morning to "spring ahead". ;-)
