October 2008 Northwatch Missive

Effective immediately by the Society Earl Marshal & the Deputy Society Earl Marshal for Combat Archery, the following changes to equipment are required:

Combat Archery ammunition may have at most 1" thick padding on the tip after taping.

All UHMW & Siloflex/Rubber Stopper ammunition must have a side wrap of foam added that brings the total diameter of the blunt to at least 1½" after taping. This wrap must extend from the tip to at least ½" over the UHMW or Siloflex itself.

All fletches on any arrows, bolts, or thrown weapons can project no farther than ½" from the shaft, or must be 1½" thick.

Note: All Marshals need to be rigorous in their inspections of all tips (arrows & thrusting) and mass weapons. Ensure that the foam is firm, will not bend over, returns to shape when compressed, and cannot be easily pushed into a legal helm more than ½".

Please note that these rule changes will be in effect for Border Skirmish and any projectiles in use there will need to be in compliance to pass.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

In Service,
