Just a note - while you can make boffer weapons in any form that you 
wish, the only ones that can be used on site, at a tourney, CANNOT have 
PVC inside. We've had too many children sustain 'blunt weapon' bruises 
from them. I'm still trying to find an acceptable substitution. If you 
have any suggestions, please contact me. We have been exploring the idea 
of cutting swords from the foam kickboards presently available at toy 
stores. I don't have access to the tools (I'm out of state) to try it 
though.  I know the small ones make great shields....
