Re: [SCA-Archery] SCA & Fita rules Re:Archery rules question
- We normally allow people shooting Royal Rounds to score themselves on the honour system.For most tournaments we have the marshal score all shots.*I* often ‘seed’ people in the tournaments I run by their RR scores submitted. People who “fudge” their Royal Rounds scores only handicap themselves.And, yes, we have some who are known to do it. For the most part they are in the middle of the pack and it’s not a huge issue in the submitted scores.James Llewellyn ap Gruffydd, OPOGGSSent from Windows Mail
No chance of cheating exists among our honourable archers. If they do, I will ignore it rather than sew discord within our Society.
