Re: Re[3]: Non Fighting Event Activities

    A 'Rose patron unkown to me suggests alternate fastening
    methods for the "Pin the Armor on the Knight" contest.

Nay, mylady. Offer duct tape, and they will line up  for the privelege.

    I'm not so sure about this one.  Were we to duct-tape a Knight,
    we'd have to make sure the splintery parts and the striking
    surfaces were well covered.  We'd have to make sure the Knight
    in question wasn't harboring extra ballast internally, and was
    of legal width.

    I for one will refrain from discussing in this family forum how
    we would ensure that Knights meet the width and ballast
    requirements.  I also suggest that while they might be willing
    to lie still for the initial taping, the UN-TAPING would be a
    singularly unpleasant experience.  I would not want to be in
    the vicinity of a recently un-taped (and cranky) Knight.
