As one of the archers at Tor- I would say you have already taken some of the
steps to correct the problem.  You might also appeal to some of the ladies or
younglings that attend the archery competition in support of family if they
might volunteer as waterbearers to help you out.  This has the advantage that
most archers and supporters are aware of where archery will be and when so,
even if schedule is adjusted, you will have someone to help cover it.  The
other aspect is to contact the marshal in charge and ask that they make sure
someone lets you know the details of when/where the competition will be and
that they send someone to secure water/waterbearers if there is none present.

On the whole, though, as soon as you were aware of the problem you did what
was needed to correct it and all of the archers thank you for this.   We live
and we learn and if we must make errors, we try to make new and smaller ones
each time.  Or at least that is the way I see it.  :-)

I wanted to say that I'm very sorry for ya'll not getting whole heck alot of
water at the Tor this weekend.  I had very few water bottles and a serious
shortage of water coolers (loong story). :( On top of that I was not
informed about when you started shooting or where the archery field was even
set-up.  I did talk to the co-autocrat and told him about the serious
shortage. I explained to him that what was needed for the Tor's future
events in the way of water-bearing.

Ya'll being "water-stranded" has been bugging me....

I will be water-bearer in charge at Elfsea Defender this year. So, I'm going
to put this out to you. What can I do (as a water-bearer) to make you more
comfortable on the field? What can I provide to you?
