Or because that is not fun for them and there are plenty of
things that are fun for them. Fun things often involve a
lot of work and "paying of dues", but they are fun for the
person doing them. Apparently, IKAC and IKCAC are not fun
for the majority of archers (Archers?) in our kingdom.
It is certainly Gilli's right to try to get people to
consider doing IKAC/IKCAC shoots, but he over steps when
he says those who do not do what he considers fun or
valuable are not archers.
