Re: SCA Archery
You hit upon one area which I see as a major stumbling block. Who's paying for this?
I, personally, don't see any need for this Society wide ranking. That said, if someone
wanted to get something running on their own nickel and invite scores to be submitted, I
have no problem with that.
But if it becomes a Society paid system, well, that's when the prickles get up on the back
of my neck. How does a modern scoring and ranking system help us acheive the objectives
of the Society? I would be writing to the Society and questioning this expense. And, if an
archer would do this, you can bet that a heavy fighter or rapier fighter would be
questioning it as well.
In our Kingdom, we hand out Ton Ten Medallions based on your Royal Round and York
Scores. At first, these were paid for out of Kingdom general expenses but they eventually
stopped this and the cost moved to the An Tir Missile Guild. Membership in the Missile
Guild costs $5 and we also do fundraisers. This may also be an option - that the costs are
covered either by donation or by a Guild membership.

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
