i've started skipping a lot of the posts, due to number posted, and same old arguments, but if i remember correctly , the only person it got reported to at the time was the squires , anti ca knight .
and no one thought to report it , or save the shaft , or to read who the shaft belonged to off of the shaft . etc.

be safe, be happy, havefun

  But let it be know also that this incident was 2 years ago, and was never reported to the MIC or CAMIC of the event in Atlantia.I believe.

  Sir Kenneth,
  It's true. There are a few knights and masters on the Missile Combat list, some of whom are advocating a single society standard and that standard would be tube ammo. In fact some are actually advocating that we go to a single manufacturer!
  What is driving this is the fear that a fiberglass shaft will penetrate a blunt and then someone's eye. I and others have been trying to reassure them of the safety of fiberglass shafts when wedded to UHMW blunts. Some have actually come around to a point. Others lofted their opinions and then left. I have to say, a number of the posters on the list (CA proponents and anti-CA types) have been less than courteous. 
  Duke Lucan has posted an account by one of his squires stating that he was struck below his eye by a blunt-less shaft. So those that dislike CA has an incident to point to.

  What information does anyone here have on this?  Sir Lyonel just posted this to the Chiv list.

  A number of knights in various kingdoms are pressing, lately, to ban fibreglass shaft ammunition and allow only 100# siloflex bolts and arrows on the battlefield. 

  I confess that I don’t frequent the SCA-wide lists, so I hadn’t heard of this until now.  Does this have a chance?  What is driving this?  Lyonel put a pool out to our list to get the opinion of our chivalry on it asking just one question…”do you agree with this?”  I don’t expect many of the Ansteorran chivalry to support such an idiotic (sorry…to strong a word?) proposal.  I just wanted to find out what anyone else might know about it.
