This is definetaly a step towards getting the Royal Huntsman into the eyes
of the Crown and there heirs.

I would say as close to Coronation as possiable. How ever here is where the
rub is it still up to each Crown/heir to make that choice. Untill we have a
tridational date this problem will continue. The solution is to have 4 or 5
Crowns in a row have the Royal Huntsman shoot at about the same time in
their reign or change Kingdom law. As archers we have litle influnce on the
first and I don't think the second has much chance, at least not till after
it is no longer needed.
