Baron Sir Osgkar of the Wood,
Earl Marshal of the East Kingdom

Greetings!

As we fight for those who inspire us, for our kingdoms or clans, for our close friends and those who are about to become our close friends, we must keep close the Code of Chivalry. Safety and Enjoyment are equally important and mutually required, for a battle without either is dreary indeed. Fight well and with honor,
Osgkar

Osgkar Earl Marshal

Unto the East Kingdom does Osgkar of the Wood send greetings,

After much long drawn-out discussion, the Society Earl Marshal has made a decision about the Airsoft Modification (experiment at Pennsic 2012)

He has decided to disallow their use at Pennsic. If you have mandrake tips that have been modified you must remove the pellets and put in foam to pass inspection at the point. I know this is hard to take but it is the call the man in charge made.

Here is the exact wording from society

D. Fiberglass Spears
4. All fiberglass spears must have a thrusting tip that is a minimum of 2 inches (50.8 mm) in diameter/cross-section and have 2 inches (50.8 mm) of resilient material in front of the PVC end cap, thereby providing progressively resistant give without allowing contact with the PVC end cap.

Now for the good news. Ice Falcon's spear tips are good to go and ... 2" homemade tips are legal as well. so we have a bunch of options for good tips that will pass muster. Sadly not the clever functional Airsoft mod so many of us like.

We will continue to be able to use the mod in kingdom but they need to be marked with green and red denoting an experimental weapon.

In service to the greatest Kingdom in the Knowne World, I remain

Osgkar Earl Marshal
