      Scores improve???

      In Æthelmearc no one touches any arrows until the scoring marshal is
      present (exception - deadwood or *noncounters*) Seldom do we allow archers
      to 'score' their own rounds and report to the marshal that score (although
      I *have* done that on occasion with archers I personally trust [usually a
      Marshal in their own right]) The count is added as the arrow is pulled and
      I can watch for any inadvertant 'movement' of the target. (Other marshals
      add all the arrows *prior* to removal if the target is not "buried" with
      an intense cluster of arrows in one area.) Either method requires a
      scoring Marshal to be present and witnissing the score. Ergo, little
      chance of "cheating" the score.
