have come to the following conclusion. Your score at shooting is
only a part of being granted a Laurel. It does not matter if you
rank with a 100 point on Royal Rounds, or a 30. It is what you do
with the knowledge you possess in the Art of Archery. While a
higher "average" will tend to add more weight to your consideration
for a Laurel, if you do not have other mitigating factors you would
still not be eligable for a Laurel. In plain speak, there is
no "shooting well enough to be considered Laurel quality" Brennin

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...
