Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: SCA Archery
- I would like to share your confidence in the abilities of our
individual archers, but my experience in 30 years in the SCA does not
warrant it. There are very few outright dishonest archers, but many
careless ones or those who conveniently "forget" scores they do not
like or delay recording them and then use the scores they
"remember" I lost count long ago of the number of archers who came
up to me wanting confirmation of ranking based on scores the
"remember" shooting at certain events but are dismayed to find I
still had copies of the score sheets and could confirm the scores
were much lower than they were (incidentally, I never had an archer
who remembered a score as being lower than actually shot).
Additionally, such a site would eventually be assumed to confer
official sanction and would be used as such by some people. Any time
a centralized (record" archive is set up it becomes assumed to have
official standing. Sorry to sound like a cynic but that's been my experience.

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
