- This quarters issue of PRIMITIVE ARCHERY magazine has a good article
about The SCA and Combat Archery.
What makes SCA Archery different? The only competition on the my mind
is with me. Can I score one more point than I did last time? Can I hit
the fun target etc. Sure, prizes are given but they are fun prizes not
matters of life and death and corporate sponsorship.
Another reason is the feeling of comraderie I find on the line. If you
have a problem, many people are willing to help you solve it. Anything
from spanking your arm to making your own bow will be discussed,
pointers given and secrets shared. When I fired High Power Rifle
Competitions, I was always in an equipment and dollar race. Here the
equipment is centuries old and anyone can enjoy the game without
spending the rent on a new trigger group or bedding method.
Finally, and most important is the friends I have made. People from all
walks off life from professionals to bums. All with knowledge and a
viewpoint and the willingness to share without putting others down.

easiest way to keep up with your average RR scores is to put a small note
book in your shooting gear box, then after you shoot a round. Then ask what
your score was and write it in the note book. then you can average your top
three scores . You don't have to have someone else do it for you.Plus if you
have this record, you have somewhat of a proof that you did shoot a score on
