Re: [SCA-Archery] Starting time for archery events
- Gosh, 9am? Wow, that's late! Well, actually for a competition 9am is
fine, depending on the nature of the event. For championships etc, we
wait until after Court/Invocation of the List. But the range is open as
soon as a qualified marshal shows up and wants to open it for practice
rounds. I've been known to wander over at 6:30-7am and roust the guys
camped at the range with the sound of arrows hitting the butt.
But then we have mostly camping events when archery is included.
