Ok, I am trying to take an interest in messing with archery again, Lord of
the Rings was a great inspiration.  If I could have a bow that I draw like
Legolas, it would overcome all the problems I have always had.  My arm
elbow rotates and get in the way if I hold it in the conventional way, but
I would like a smaller, more flexable bow that I could hold horizontally or
at an angle and probably be a fairly decent shot.

I would also like for some of our archers to discuss the differences
between different types of SCA archery and how the bows differ.  What I
have seen of the combat arrows, I am baffled by what sort of trajectory
they must have.  How do those fly?  Also, what sort of dangers are there to
being a white diamond archer?  What sort of armor do you need?

Thinking about the joys of archery,

I know if I cup shotted the bear,
he would have fallen down...
