----- 1 Marshal-in-Charge, to supervise overall, and
do the event reports afterward. This person can do the sign-ups and other
similar tasks, as well.
----- 1 inspection marshal, who can also help
with simple repairs and physical tests of tackle. An extra marshal or two
here wouldn't be amiss, if you can find 'em.
----- 1 marshal per 10
participants on the line, but a minimum of two line marshals in any case
(one at each end of the Release line); so, if you have a line of 5, 2
marshals / a line of 12, 2 marshals / a line of 26, 3 marshals, and so on.
An additional marshal can be designated as a timekeeper for speed shoots,
or you can use recordings if they can be heard clearly by everyone. A
further additional marshal may be designated as a scorekeeper and
recorder, if other arrangements haven't been made, and always assuming you
have the minimum two line marshals actually watching the field and the
archers (hint: the MiC can fit scorekeeping into the other paperwork
aspects quite easily).
----- As many instruction marshals as you can
find conveniently and they aren't otherwise occupied - if you think you
can provide one per two students, well enough.
marshals who have experience in or authorization for Youth activities
would be helpful. You don't describe the physical range, but if you have
more than one range, designating a practice range and/or a Youth range
helps. Remember the general rule of a minimum of two line marshals per
separate line or range.
----- However many MiTs you can rope in to
assist and be trained throughout the day.
All the foregoing are
basically Pennsic standards, modified just a tad. I was archocrat for P
31, 32, 33, 34, so I'm quite familiar with large masses of archers of all
skill levels drifting onto a range at all hours of the day
