I think that seting up rankings within the Fellowship would tend to
defeat the idea of trying to bring all the various kingdom archery
Anyway, how could one tell that a Companion in one kingdom does not have
the skill and knowledge of a Fellow in another kingdom? If a kingdom
does not have a AoA or higher award for archery, then even the most
skilled and knowledgable archer in the entire SCA, if they live in that
kingdom, could only be given a non armigerous award.
If someone wishes to know what level award members of the Fellowship
were given, they only need to ask them.
