ANST-Announce - New rapier rules

It was brought to my attention this past weekend that there is some
misunderstanding about the new rapier rules, specifically the changes in
the underarm area.  The rules read as follows :

The INSIDE of the upper arm, from the arm pit down one-third the distance
to the elbow must be covered with puncture-resistant material.

This means that only the inside of the upper arm needs to have the extra
protection.  You do NOT have to have the entire upper arm protected
thusly.  Hopefully, this will clear up any misunderstandings.
