      3) Sir Erika from Trimaris for her constant work on behalf of the IKAC in Trimaris


      IMPORTANT NOTES:
      -------------------

      - Season XXXI (2008)
      1) Clearly this final posting is very late. For that I apologize profusely. The reasons are many and varied and known to some of you, but a substantial reason is paradoxically positive, i.e. thousand+ submissions since October which have taken a long long time for me to enter. The good news is that this issue is being actively handled as we speak, more on this later.
      ALL the scores received for ALL archers in ALL divisions are posted on the website ( http://www.detommaso.org/ikac ). Please review them, and let me know of any issues and/or errors. The scores will be certified on 15 February, so it is possible that some of the standings may change until then. The medallions for the winners will be available the first week of March. After 15 February, please contact me if you are a winner, or can handle medallions for the winner

      - Season XXXII (2009)
      1) As mentioned earlier, I expect that data entry and reporting will be much easier going forward, freeing me to concentrate on managing the competition and the non on-line entries. Thanks to Baron Jonathas, who initiated the idea of using his portal for on-line submission and contacted me about it, I hope that the majority of scores in the coming season will be entered through the on-line form. Over the past several weeks we have been working to develop and expand the portal that currently allows some Kingdoms to enter scores through the online form for all archers to all Kingdoms for the IKAC. There are still a few issues to be worked out, but the expectation is that this will be available to all archers very shortly, and all appropriate links will be posted on the IKAC
      web site. The Excel spreadsheet and snail-mail submission will still be accepted, of course. More details on this as it develops, and again, heartfelt thanks to Baron Jonathas for his initiative and hard work with his Multi-Kingdom scorekeeping website. That this is possible is totally a tribute to his initiative, skill and resources.

      2) CHANGES: Time has come to make some changes, in the interest of the competition. They are as follows:
      - CHILDREN Division is now limited to children 10 years or younger
      - YOUTH division is for children aged 10-13
      - BOTH divisions will use the formerly CHILDREN division shorter distances (10,15,20 yards, instead of 20,30,40).
      - Children 14 or older will compete in the regular divisions at regular distances.
      - The CHILDREN and YOUTH Divisions were always meant ONLY to help children get interested and started in archery and put in the time to start developing their skills. As I had specifically mentioned in the rules, children who already shoot at the level of adults should be shooting in the main divisions. For the most part this has worked, but there have been some exceptions. In the interest of the competition, starting this year, I will be enforcing this last point. Scores for the Children and Youth divisions will be limited to 200 or below. Also, I don't want to get multiple scores that all hover around 200. Those scores will be rejected. Marshals, please understand the goal of these divisions, they are meant to encourage children to get started and develop. I thank you in advance for your assistance on this.

      - VERY HIGH SCORES: Without question, throughout the years by far the most unpleasant part of being Keeper has been dealing with the flood of emails that very high scores have generated from others.
      Having run the competition since 2000, and having 15000+ scores in my database, I can pretty much chart the progress of the archers of the SCA at large, and that of any individual archer who has ever shot an IKAC. But lately this matter has become worse, and it is my strongly held belief that the constant doubting of scores is damaging to the competition, because it generates the feeling that not everyone is playing by the same rules. As proof I can offer the many letters that I have received from archers who have written to me saying they are no longer shooting the IKAC for this very reason. So this must be addressed, and it will be addressed.

      Although I firmly believe in the honor system that is at the heart of most of the SCA's competitions, clearly something has to be done to restore and/or strengthen everyone's belief that the IKAC is an open and level playing field. Therefore, even though going forward most scores will be entered on-line, I will review each score before I allow them to be posted. I reserve the right to reject any score for any reason. I don't expect to reject anything if all goes well, but I may contact individual archers to get more information regarding individual scores if they are well outside the mean.
      In the end, I personally guarantee to each and every archer in the SCA that everyone in the competition is playing by the same rules, and my guarantee will include personal observation, wherever required. So going forward you can safely assume that if a score is posted, it deserves to be there.

      I welcome your input on this, feel free to contact me at ikac@... if you have any comments or questions on this.

      Finally, thank you to everyone for your continued participation in the IKAC/IKCAC. This year was above average, and I hope that with the new on-line form, we will grow even more. Unfortunately, my mundane work prevents me from keeping up with the boards, therefore please send any questions or comments directly to ikac@..., or detomamd@....

      Shoot well,
      - Lorenzo

        I don't see my score, Egil Haraldsson, Gleann Abhann. I know I have
        at least one score turned in becuase I had to have a score to get
        into the GET Tourney at Gulf Wars. I do not remember what it was,
        sorry. I should have had more but I only made 2 events all year, GW
        08 and Gatalop. Happens like that when you work offshore.

        > 1) Clearly this final posting is very late. For that I apologize
        profusely. The reasons are many and varied and known to some of you,
        but a substantial reason is paradoxically positive, i.e. thousand+
        submissions since October which have taken a long long time for me to
        enter. The good news is that this issue is being actively handled as
        we speak, more on this later.
        > ALL the scores received for ALL archers in ALL divisions are posted
        on the website ( http://www.detommaso.org/ikac ). Please review them,

        certified on 15 February, so it is possible that some of the

        >
        > - Season XXXII (2009)
        > 1) As mentioned earlier, I expect that data entry and reporting
        will be much easier going forward, freeing me to concentrate on
        managing the competition and the non on-line entries. Thanks to Baron
        Jonathas, who initiated the idea of using his portal for on-line
        submission and contacted me about it, I hope that the majority of
        scores in the coming season will be entered through the on-line form.
        Over the past several weeks we have been working to develop and
        expand the portal that currently allows some Kingdoms to enter scores
        through the online form for all archers to all Kingdoms for the IKAC.
        There are still a few issues to be worked out, but the expectation is
        that this will be available to all archers very shortly, and all
        appropriate links will be posted on the IKAC
        > web site. The Excel spreadsheet and snail-mail submission will
        still be accepted, of course. More details on this as it develops,
        and again, heartfelt thanks to Baron Jonathas for his initiative and
        hard work with his Multi-Kingdom scorekeeping website. That this is
        possible is totally a tribute to his initiative, skill and resources.
        >
        > 2) CHANGES: Time has come to make some changes, in the interest of
        the competition. They are as follows:
        > - CHILDREN Division is now limited to children 10 years or
        younger
        > - YOUTH division is for children aged 10-13
        > - BOTH divisions will use the formerly CHILDREN division
        shorter distances (10,15,20 yards, instead of 20,30,40).
        > - Children 14 or older will compete in the regular divisions
        at regular distances.
        > - The CHILDREN and YOUTH Divisions were always meant ONLY to
        help children get interested and started in archery and put in the
        time to start developing their skills. As I had specifically
        mentioned in the rules, children who already shoot at the level of
        adults should be shooting in the main divisions. For the most part
        this has worked, but there have been some exceptions. In the interest
        of the competition, starting this year, I will be enforcing this last
        point. Scores for the Children and Youth divisions will be limited to
        200 or below. Also, I don't want to get multiple scores that all
        hover around 200. Those scores will be rejected. Marshals, please
        understand the goal of these divisions, they are meant to encourage
        children to get started and develop. I thank you in advance for your
        assistance on this.
        >
        > - VERY HIGH SCORES: Without question, throughout the years by
        far the most unpleasant part of being Keeper has been dealing with
        the flood of emails that very high scores have generated from others.
        > Having run the competition since 2000, and having 15000+ scores in
        my database, I can pretty much chart the progress of the archers of
        the SCA at large, and that of any individual archer who has ever shot
        an IKAC. But lately this matter has become worse, and it is my
        strongly held belief that the constant doubting of scores is damaging
        to the competition, because it generates the feeling that not
        everyone is playing by the same rules. As proof I can offer the many
        letters that I have received from archers who have written to me
        saying they are no longer shooting the IKAC for this very reason. So
        this must be addressed, and it will be addressed.
        >
        > Although I firmly believe in the honor system that is at the heart
        of most of the SCA's competitions, clearly something has to be done
        to restore and/or strengthen everyone's belief that the IKAC is an
        open and level playing field. Therefore, even though going forward
        most scores will be entered on-line, I will review each score before
        I allow them to be posted. I reserve the right to reject any score
        for any reason. I don't expect to reject anything if all goes well,
        but I may contact individual archers to get more information
        regarding individual scores if they are well outside the mean.
        > In the end, I personally guarantee to each and every archer in the
        SCA that everyone in the competition is playing by the same rules,
        and my guarantee will include personal observation, wherever
        required. So going forward you can safely assume that if a score is
        posted, it deserves to be there.

          200 or below. Also, I don't want to get multiple scores that all
          hover around 200. Those scores will be rejected. Marshals, please
          understand the goal of these divisions, they are meant to encourage
          children to get started and develop. I thank you in advance for your
          assistance on this.

          > Having run the competition since 2000, and having 15000+ scores in
          my database, I can pretty much chart the progress of the archers of
          the SCA at large, and that of any individual archer who has ever shot
          an IKAC. But lately this matter has become worse, and it is my
          strongly held belief that the constant doubting of scores is damaging
          to the competition, because it generates the feeling that not
          everyone is playing by the same rules. As proof I can offer the many
          letters that I have received from archers who have written to me
          saying they are no longer shooting the IKAC for this very reason. So
          this must be addressed, and it will be addressed.

          > Although I firmly believe in the honor system that is at the heart
          of most of the SCA's competitions, clearly something has to be done
          to restore and/or strengthen everyone's belief that the IKAC is an
          open and level playing field. Therefore, even though going forward
          most scores will be entered on-line, I will review each score before
          I allow them to be posted. I reserve the right to reject any score
          for any reason. I don't expect to reject anything if all goes well,
          but I may contact individual archers to get more information
          regarding individual scores if they are well outside the mean.
          > In the end, I personally guarantee to each and every archer in the
          SCA that everyone in the competition is playing by the same rules,
          and my guarantee will include personal observation, wherever
          required. So going forward you can safely assume that if a score is
          posted, it deserves to be there.

              Lorenzo,

              There are at least two, maybe 3 reports from the Outlands missing.
              I've contacted our Scorekeeper Constanza about them and she will be
              getting them to you before the 15th.

              At least two of the reports will make a difference in the rankings. A
              couple of our crossbow archers got hot late in our outside range season!

              YIS,
              Tyr
              Deputy Archer General of the Outlands (Northern region)

              profusely. The reasons are many and varied and known to some of you,
              but a substantial reason is paradoxically positive, i.e. thousand+
              submissions since October which have taken a long long time for me to
              enter. The good news is that this issue is being actively handled as
              we speak, more on this later.
              > ALL the scores received for ALL archers in ALL divisions are posted
              on the website ( http://www.detommaso.org/ikac ). Please review them,
              and let me know of any issues and/or errors. The scores will be
              certified on 15 February, so it is possible that some of the standings
              may change until then. The medallions for the winners will be
              available the first week of March. After 15 February, please contact
              me if you are a winner, or can handle medallions for the winner

              > 1) As mentioned earlier, I expect that data entry and reporting will
              be much easier going forward, freeing me to concentrate on managing
              the competition and the non on-line entries. Thanks to Baron Jonathas,
              who initiated the idea of using his portal for on-line submission and
              contacted me about it, I hope that the majority of scores in the
              coming season will be entered through the on-line form. Over the past
              several weeks we have been working to develop and expand the portal
              that currently allows some Kingdoms to enter scores through the online
              form for all archers to all Kingdoms for the IKAC. There are still a
              few issues to be worked out, but the expectation is that this will be
              available to all archers very shortly, and all appropriate links will
              be posted on the IKAC
              > web site. The Excel spreadsheet and snail-mail submission will still
              be accepted, of course. More details on this as it develops, and
              again, heartfelt thanks to Baron Jonathas for his initiative and hard
              work with his Multi-Kingdom scorekeeping website. That this is
              possible is totally a tribute to his initiative, skill and resources.

              > - CHILDREN Division is now limited to children 10 years or younger
              > - YOUTH division is for children aged 10-13
              > - BOTH divisions will use the formerly CHILDREN division shorter
              distances (10,15,20 yards, instead of 20,30,40).
              > - Children 14 or older will compete in the regular divisions at
              regular distances.
              > - The CHILDREN and YOUTH Divisions were always meant ONLY to help
              children get interested and started in archery and put in the time to
              start developing their skills. As I had specifically mentioned in the
              rules, children who already shoot at the level of adults should be
              shooting in the main divisions. For the most part this has worked, but
              there have been some exceptions. In the interest of the competition,
              starting this year, I will be enforcing this last point. Scores for
              the Children and Youth divisions will be limited to 200 or below.
              Also, I don't want to get multiple scores that all hover around 200.
              Those scores will be rejected. Marshals, please understand the goal of
              these divisions, they are meant to encourage children to get started
              and develop. I thank you in advance for your assistance on this.

              > - VERY HIGH SCORES: Without question, throughout the years by far
              the most unpleasant part of being Keeper has been dealing with the
              flood of emails that very high scores have generated from others.
              > Having run the competition since 2000, and having 15000+ scores in
              my database, I can pretty much chart the progress of the archers of
              the SCA at large, and that of any individual archer who has ever shot
              an IKAC. But lately this matter has become worse, and it is my
              strongly held belief that the constant doubting of scores is damaging
              to the competition, because it generates the feeling that not everyone
              is playing by the same rules. As proof I can offer the many letters
              that I have received from archers who have written to me saying they
              are no longer shooting the IKAC for this very reason. So this must be
              addressed, and it will be addressed.

              > Although I firmly believe in the honor system that is at the heart
              of most of the SCA's competitions, clearly something has to be done to
              restore and/or strengthen everyone's belief that the IKAC is an open
              and level playing field. Therefore, even though going forward most
              scores will be entered on-line, I will review each score before I
              allow them to be posted. I reserve the right to reject any score for
              any reason. I don't expect to reject anything if all goes well, but I
              may contact individual archers to get more information regarding
              individual scores if they are well outside the mean.
              > In the end, I personally guarantee to each and every archer in the
              SCA that everyone in the competition is playing by the same rules, and
              my guarantee will include personal observation, wherever required. So
              going forward you can safely assume that if a score is posted, it
              deserves to be there.

              the IKAC/IKCAC. This year was above average, and I hope that with the
              new on-line form, we will grow even more. Unfortunately, my mundane
              work prevents me from keeping up with the boards, therefore please
              send any questions or comments directly to ikac@..., or detomamd@...
