26200Re: [SCA-Archery] Pennsic Competition
- Mar 2, 2009Gladius ... I love the idea of the shoot. You might want to check
with the East & Mid KAM's though about doing it during the tryouts.
The tryouts aren't always 'fully' open. (East is often less open of a
tryout than the Mid is).
And I might be concerned about hundreds of folks showing up to try to
win your most excellent wares, and therefore flooding the tryouts and
making it harder for the people running the tryouts and trying to
actually make some tough decisions.
