And several people have asked "Who's name was on it?" No answer there either.

They brought the headless shaft to them later saying they found it where he was standing, so it must have been it.-JP

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.  EdV

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.
