Yes people are saying they can do the builds and crafts to promote archery so since its an aspect of archery then should be in the guild. I agree with your statements. If you want to concentrate on crafting various archery things like arrow or bow building the focus on A&S and become a laurel focusing on archery.

I am sorry to be blunt, but if one has a back injury and cannot shoot, then one is not an archer. Perhaps a
former archer, or a retired archer, but not currently an archer. Establishing a Novice level based on RR's
seems a simple and obvious choice, perhaps with different criteria/shooting rounds for more advanced
levels within the Guild. As for those that cannot shoot due to injury, are they suggesting any other
method than RRs, or are they suggesting criteria that do not require shooting(?) which makes no sense.
Archery is shooting,.... Are they giving you guff about your criteria and insisting that it allow those
that cannot shoot to be
allowed a pass because the cannot do the activity?

Here I gleann abhann we are trying to establish an archery guild wtih RR scores as a novice level and getting allot if guff because some people have back injuries which prevent them from shooting.
