    Hi All,
    I think I have searched thru' the Guild's material and have found photos (of some great reproductions) and drawings (Mr. Sam's) but haven't found a couple items I'm interested in:
    1. Can someone direct me to photos of the original Padre Island crossbow artifacts?
    2. And any descriptions that hopefully include dimensions?

    (Still waiting for The Traditional . . .)

    I'll ask my Journeyman, (Lightly) to forward the address for her flicker page.  It features many pictures of a Padre Island bow building.   Geezer
