Re: [SCA-Archery] Great Western War
- Just to allay any fears of the authorization process allow me to make a
statement. I no longer have any official standing other than my Senior
Range Marshal position however, as Master of Archers for Caid in the
past I never had a problem with out of kingdom archers and
authorizations. I accepted the standards of their home kingdom but
explained Caid's process and had virtually all of them choose to be
authorized by the full process including the open book test. No one had
a problem passing even without using the book. The questions are based
on common sense and safety and will already be included in any other
kingdom's training. Typical questions would be "What does Hold mean?"
or "When may an arrow be loosed in a speed end?" If anyone wants to
look at the handbook in advance it is online at the Marshal's section of
A question was raised as to Crossbow in the championship. In past wars
provision was made for crossbows if enough showed up. I don't know if
suitable backstops will be available this year but I would expect them
to be there.

It was awesome!
Thanks for the chance to expand our archery family. Surviving this heat made us stronger. Lol
We are having fun in Caid. It was fun shooting with so many new friends. The moving target was a blast. Ingenious, too.
I slept thru the coon fry that lit up the pavilion like it was noon. Charred and smoking, it fell from the night sky. I feel a song coming on... Nope. Just a yawn.
