Archery Laurel requirements?
- A discussion about what the basic SCA wide standards or requirements for
an archery Laurel should be has been going on the SCA-4peerage list. So
I have decided to ask the archery and missile combat list members three
1) Is such a set of standards needed? And why or why not?
2) If there were to be a set of standards for an archery laurel, what do
you believe the standards or requirements should include?
e.g.: What types of bows should they shoot? What kind of scores should
they have? What competitions, if any, should they have scores in? Should
they be in a certain percentage level or score level, SCA wide or
kingdom wide, in certain competitions to be considered? Should they
make or at least know how to make their own gear? Should they archery
marshal and if so how often? Should they teach and if so how much?
Should they write articles on archery? Should they do combat archery in
additional to target archery? Could they do combat archery only? etc.,
The above are just a few possible suggestions. There are many more
possible standards and some of the above you might not consider as
3) Should such a possible set of suggested archery Laurel standards be
SCA wide ? Or should any suggested standards be on a kingdom by kingdom
basis with consideration made for the standards and background of each
Please post any responses to both the archery and missile lists.
Thanks for any opinions you may offer.
> How about going for the period look. A slate and chalk.
On the back of the slate you could paint neatly a few common
phrases that anyone in a teaching position might use, such as
"stand with your feet wider" - "hold the string closer to your
cheek" - "relax" - "Please don't shoot my Knight" etc. I', sure you
get the idea. A running list could be gathered, and then if you are
assisting someone, you could flip the slate and point to a phrase
and smile...it could save an awfull lot of writing in the long run...
Just a thought
