It can be done as part of a championship providing loner helmet, gloves, bows
and arrows are available for use by all participants. It has been done for years
as part of the Royal Huntsman competition and no the targets are not moving,
they are the IKCAC targets. It is a good way to introduce our populas and our
archers to the combat side of archery and if they wish to pursue it then the
formal training takes place for authorization.
Just my thoughts on the subject.

I personally was thinking of running it more as a static combat archery
against targets than an active combat scenario.
Qui mieux fait, mieux vault.
