Greetings Combat Archery Enthusiast!

Want to shoot combat Archery but can't figure out how to make those darned
arrrows/bolts?  We can help!  Come to Wiesnfeuer's Yule revel this Sat. and
join in the arrow making class.  Can't afford to purchase 50 new Baldar
blunts?  We can help there too!  Centurian Jean Paul will be doing a demo on
how to produce UHMW heads!! .  This demo will be held outside due to
noise/mess issues.  Hopefully the weather will be nice.  The acutall arrow
construction will be done inside.  *** I had hoped to have some heads made
for this yule to sell (at my cost) but the holidays made shipping slow and I
was unable to aquire the material in time.

Time: 1:30ish to 4/5ish Sat afternnoon.
Please come prepared to put your arrows together. This is a WORKING class.
You will need:

your going to use them. Please look at the ansteorra archery webpage for
