Photos from this year, including the Roman's new Chiro-ballista...it's very very pretty;

Despite the fact that it's not firing close to maximum power, it still managed to embed a bolt a centimetre or two in a masonry wall (when someone missed the target).

looks like everyone enjoyed themselves.

Maybe next year Napoleonics could come too. (we don't need to shoot we can do "dry" training)

cheers

Love the photos. Thanks to the boys for being such good sports :) I appologise for any injuries incurred, I'm sure some of those muscles hadn't been used in a while :D
