Greetings fellow archers,

Just thought I would let everyone know that Harbor Freight 
is having a sale on the Yellow Nylon 1/4" rope.  You can get
a 600' roll for only $9.99, that is half of what it normally 
runs.  This rope is great for marking off your safety zone 
for the target range.  Happy shopping!

That's right folks.  Remember, marking your range and safety zone 
perimeters is not optional.  It is mandatory per the SCA rules.  The 
methods and dimensions can vary but you gotta mark the perimeter of your 
range and the safety zones beyond your targets.

For a range with a:

    * 30' firing line  (enough for about 6 archers)
    * Typical rage supporting Royal Rounds or IKAC  with targets at 20,
      30, and 40 yards from the firing line.
    * Safety zone marked out to 80 yards from the firing line.  That is
      40 yards from the farthest target.

Assuming you proceed at a 45 degree angle from your firing line back to 
the distance of your first target, your range perimeter will look 
something like this,  and it will take you about 280 yards of rope (or 
perhaps more) so ya better buy two of those rolls at Harbor Freight 
unless you already have plenty of rope.
