      ----- 1 Marshal-in-Charge, to supervise overall, and
      do the event reports afterward. This person can do the sign-ups and other
      similar tasks, as well.
      ----- 1 inspection marshal, who can also help
      with simple repairs and physical tests of tackle. An extra marshal or two
      here wouldn't be amiss, if you can find 'em.
      ----- 1 marshal per 10
      participants on the line, but a minimum of two line marshals in any case
      (one at each end of the Release line); so, if you have a line of 5, 2
      marshals / a line of 12, 2 marshals / a line of 26, 3 marshals, and so on.
      An additional marshal can be designated as a timekeeper for speed shoots,
      or you can use recordings if they can be heard clearly by everyone. A
      further additional marshal may be designated as a scorekeeper and
      recorder, if other arrangements haven't been made, and always assuming you
      have the minimum two line marshals actually watching the field and the
      archers (hint: the MiC can fit scorekeeping into the other paperwork
      aspects quite easily).
      ----- As many instruction marshals as you can
      find conveniently and they aren't otherwise occupied - if you think you
      can provide  one per two students, well enough.
      ----- Several
      marshals who have experience in or authorization for Youth activities
      would be helpful. You don't describe the physical range, but if you have
      more than one range, designating a practice range and/or a Youth range
      helps. Remember the general rule of a minimum of two line marshals per
      separate line or range.
      ----- However many MiTs you can rope in to
      assist and be trained throughout the day.

      All the foregoing are
      basically Pennsic standards, modified just a tad. I was archocrat for P
      31, 32, 33, 34, so I'm quite familiar with large masses of archers of all
      skill levels drifting onto a range at all hours of the day
