Re: [SCA-Archery] New poll for SCA-Archery
- I have a problem with the total score for the roundel shoot.As I the rules read, it appears that a perfect end scores 30 points. 3 points times 6 arrows = 18 points for all the pins plus 12 points for all the pins thus equaling 30 points for the end. Multiply this by 4 and you have 120 points for four perfect ends. Even if only give 12 points for hitting the pin 24 times you still only score 84 points. So please a clarification on the scoring for the shoot?As with the Roundel I also have a problem in the scoring the Popinjay.The rules say a max score of 68 points. If the most unfavorable method of scoring is used where each arrow is worth one less than the previous arrow you could score 78 point for 12 popinjays with 12 arrows. (12+11+10+9+8 etc.). If each popinjay is worth 12 points with the first arrow then 12 popinjays time 12 arrows is 144 points. So please a clarification on the scoring?In Service to the Dream

Please note, there is a change to the Roundel-Sextet shoot. The following will be added to the rules."If an archer puts more than one arrow into a single roundel, then no score is given for any of their arrows in that roundel."Jon
- JonathasI've updated the rules for this shoot to help clear them up some, I hope.Not sure how to fix the 10 arrow problem on this shoot. I was trying to get 2 hits per can plus a few spare arrows. Fewer cans didn't seem right as that would make a low scoring shoot have even more ties. For those with too few arrows I guess they could shoot the un-timed ends as two ends of 2 cans each (5 arrows per end), and for the timed end borrow arrows from a friend, then lend their arrows to the friend to shoot the timed end as a second line of archers.An actual soda can is 2.5" diameter by 5.5" tall. The reason I did not use pool noodles is that they are far from consistent in diameter and also they are a very geographically seasonal item. Between these two reasons it would make it difficult for everyone to find them at the same time and in the same size. So, I went with the 3"x3" squares of 1" thick foam board that can always be found.Sorry about the confusion with the bonus, I was trying to play the numbers so the bonus would help but would not run the obscure the score.

got some questions on the Pop Cans shoot. 3"x6" seems a bit big, but that is fine. For scoring can you hit the same can multiple times in one end? I guess what I am asking is, it the max score for an untimed end 4 or is it 10+ however many double hits you could muster
For the timed end, you list 80 minus the time, but your sample is 90. If you can only score once per can, then shouldn't the timer cut off when you fire your 10th arrow or hit the 4th can? If you can score a can more than once then the 10 arrows makes more sense.
I suspect Johanna's point on 10 arrows will come into play on this as well.
I really like the idea on this shoot, I would consider using the larger pool noodle instead of squares of foam so you are shooting at cylinders, but it looks like a fun shoot either way.
