haven't read all the details yet, but my impression was, it has to be run as 
a separate tourney , as it is combat archery, with all heavy weapons rules 
in effect, including authorization cards, and waivers signed.

to have something similar in a baronial title shoot, you would either have 
to have a heavy fighter without a bow staying in one box while the combat 
archers shot at him / her , or place an ikcac target on the range , for 
either a full ikcac, or some part there of.

thats why northkeep is going to try to do both, that lets experienced c/a 
play, and new people try it out.
but we have to get our regular ikcac guys rebuilt , as our current baron is 
wickedly consistant about pummeling poor duck, bob and weave, and that other 
poor fellow to pieces with his + 4 accurate arrows of destruction ; )
hope that helped

Be Safe , Be Happy, Have Fun .
