Greetings Ansteorra,

I have had several ask me for the rules to the Mini-Siege Engine Competition 
at Elfsea Spring Faire.  For some reason I have been having problems with 
messages getting out of my computer.  To save time and frustrations, I will 
now post the rules for this Competition.

The Engine should fit into an 18" cube (18" tall X 18" wide X 18" long).
These are mostly guidelines.  If the Engine is a little bit larger, it will 
probably be accept.
The arm, if building a trebuchet or catapult may extend beyond the 18" but 
must still be porportionate to the rest of the Engine.
The projectile for trebuchet or catapults will be a golf ball.
The projectile for ballistas must be provided and porportionate to the 
The Engine will be judged on distance and accuracy.
Please use period designs, as this is a Middle Ages Reenactment 

If you have further questions, please feel free to respond and your 
questions will be answered in the order they were recieved.

Thank You for all who have expressed interest.
