period and that too many people want to shoot the IKAC/RR and nothing
else. I think the IKAC needs to evolve a bit and change from it's
existing format to include different types of shoots that could be
compiled into a composite score.
My thought is that the IKAC out to be something like a clout at a
standardized distance (something between 100 to 150 yards), a full or
partial York and other kinds shoots. The IKAC also should have indoor
and outdoor components of the shoot and have the IKAC season start with
the indoor segment and end with the outdoor shoots.

There is too much regular fun archery in my area, to worry about shooting

Now, there is an event every weekend with archery. So at practices we tend
to just shoot a few royals to 'stay in shape' and then call it a day.

and having less time to do stuff' card as well)
