Use of Mandrake-style rubber thrusting tips at Pennsic 44

Sir Gregoire, KEM Middle Kingdom, MIC Pennsic 44 reports on Marshalate rulings regarding use of Mandrake-style rubber thrusting tips at the 2015 Pennsic War.

Sir Gregoire writes:

Greetings to the armored combatants of the Known World -

Due to ongoing safety concerns, Mandrake-style rubber thrusting tips will NOT be allowed on fiberglass shafted spears at Pennsic War 44 (2015). Foam tips ≥ 2”, both commercial and homemade, will be allowed. This ruling does not impact Mandrake-style rubber tips on rattan weapons.

Please spread this announcement as you see fit to assure that all who might be impacted will have time to re-build their weapons before War.

Regards,
Sir Gregoire, KEM Middle Kingdom, MIC Pennsic 44
