      Here is one reference for a date when Le Tir Beursault began.

      This discipline, specific to France, is practiced in northern France, especially in games with traditional bows (bows or gardens) of Picardy and the Ile de France.

      The facilities are often more than a century old.

      This traditional practice owes its origin to an ordinance of Charles VII of April 28, 1448 creating the 'Francs Archers', so called because of tax exemptions granted them. They formed a sort of national guard and in exchange for benefits they enjoyed, they were required to train every Sunday on a range reserved for this purpose by pulling alternately on two mounds spaced about 50 m from each the other.

        Rules for the Grouping shoot—Summer SSAC
         

        This shoot is pulled from the old Atlantian Seasonal Challenge. It was a shoot designed to get archers to focus on grouping their arrows.

         Please read the SSAC General Rules ( http://scores-sca.org/public/page.php?R=12&PID=3 ), as these apply to all SSAC shoots. Below are the additional rules for this specific shoot.

         Target:

        No target face is required, however you are welcome to put almost anything on the target butt to provide a point of reference, except *NO FITA TARGETS* allowed. So, some stickers or post-it notes, an old SSAC target you have kicking around, anything that does not involve concentric circles. It is suggested that archers attempt to place their group of arrows away from other archers, but this is not required.

         Ranges:

        For Winter, only 20 yards. For Summer and Spring, 25 yards and 35 yards.

         Ends:

        For each range there are two ends;

        1) Un-timed using 10 arrows,

        2) Timed for 45 seconds unlimited arrows.

         Scoring:

        After each end is shot, the archer will determine which single arrow will define a `center` from which to measure a 3 inch radius (6 inch diameter) circle. Any arrow either in or touching the circle gains one point. Any shaft stuck in the frame of the butt or in the ground does not count even if `technically` inside the measured circle (i.e. the `center` of the circle is very low on the butt).
