Ramin - Staged discontinuation of use as a timber for combat arrows in Lochac
From 7 July 2015, no one is to purchase ramin from timber merchants for
the purposes of making SCA combat arrows. Those SCA participants who
currently have stocks of legally imported ramin may use and sell what
remains of their own stocks, though please consider a more permanent use
than combat arrows if possible.
All groups to include in your quarterly reports (via your
group heavy marshal) on the number of ramin combat arrows in use among
your participants, as well as what stockpiles of ramin shafts remain to be
turned into arrows. The rate at which the supply is depleted will help us
determine when a complete ban on ramin combat arrows will be implemented.
We are currently investigating other sustainable timber types to add to
the allowed timbers for combat arrow shafts. If you have examples of
timbers that may be suitable and are willing to assist with testing,
please contact the Deputy for Archery directly - firstname.lastname@example.org
