Was it Lucan (East Kingdom) or Logan (Atlantia)?

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. 

Join me

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.
