RE: [SCA-Archery] Re: Grand Fellowship(draft 2)
- I have had isimilar experiences in my education. One particular professor insisted on grading on a true curve. This meant that at least one student failed even though he did excellent work. Nobody said a thing expect the student who filed a grievance. Another professor gave 8 A's and 5 B's to a class of 13. He was called on the carpet by the adminstration and we had to prove the level of knowledge he taught us. In that case his inspiration was so great that we busted our butts in the lab every night and ended up knowing more than the MD sent to examine us on the subject. So if the awards are given for excellence in archery, who cares how many there are? The recipients are qualified.

quantity. The significant of the award doesn't lose a thing whether
everybody has the award or whether nobody does. When the award is
given out it does matter that ALL the deserving recipients recieve
the award void.
Case in point. You have everybody busting thier tail in a group and
as a group they significantly improve the live of all archers in the
SCA. They help anyone who seek their help, they shoot excellent
scores, they marshal, attended every event and they are just
wonderful people/archers. Do you only give one of them the award?
How do you single out one outstanding individual in a flock of
outstanding individuals? I don't think a wise king, prince or baron
would. Giving 99 out of a 100 the award doesn't diminision the
significance of the award if the recongition is based upon true
