[Ansteorra-archery] Newest Attack on CA?

I know Lyonel supports it.  I hope I didn't insinuate otherwise.  I want
everyone here to know that it was he who conducted a poll of the Ansteorran
chivalry about 2 years ago with several questions about CA.  I was surprised
and very pleased at the outcome.  The Ansteorran Chivalry whole-heartedly
support CA.to a person.  Heck, about 1 in 4 of us ARE archers!


I'm sorry that not more of our chivalry are on the SCA list where this is
being discussed.  If the others are like me, they probably can't devote the
time to becoming embroiled in yet another e-mail list.  If Lyonel seems to
be the only Ansteorran knight or master-at-arms supporting CA on that list,
it is only because none of the rest of us participates on it.  


If anyone here thinks it would do any good, I would be happy to jump on the
list for just a few days, if only to lend what credibility I can to the
situation.  But it seems to me that it's really just more complaining than
anything else.as usual.

Sir Kenneth, as it stands right now I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Quite a bit of gum flapping by some.  Quite a bit of insult flying early on
and somewhat still.  Some really good talks about some things.  Those are
mostly about crowd safety and netting on the sidelines.  Sir Omarad came on
the list and told all we can discuss away but any changes would have to go
through the Kingdom marshalletes and up the chain of command.  He made it
pretty clear any CA changes asked for would have to go through the SCAM
before anything got to him.

Sir Lyonel has actually been fairly supportive of the CA situation.
Surprised the hell out of me about that.  He is mainly wondering why we have
such ridiculous rules for the archers.  You might want to pop him an email
and get his stance for yourself.  I think as far as I can tell he is the
only knight from Ansteorra that has spoken up in the discussion.  There have
been several others (mostly from the western kingdoms) who have spoken up
for CA also.  Most of the dissenters seem to be from the eastern seaboard

That is my view on what has been happening so far.  Lots of wind and not
much else.

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.
