Good Morning,

  At the upcoming Bryn Gwlad Championship this weekend, Baron Thomas of
  Tenby will be having guests from all of the Known World. This includes
  visiting royalty in the body of King Henry VIII and his six wives. There
  are many activities planned for the day, but this missive is just with
  regards to the Archery tournament.

  His Excellency Thomas has approved the following format for the archery
  portion of the event. The tournament is tentatively scheduled for 1pm.

General information
  Archers will be chosen randomly as to who they face in a round
  Crossbow and Longbow archers will face each other on equal ground
  All archers must stand unless there is a physical need for them to sit
  All archers must shoot cold - no practice at the line before the tournament
  Distance to the targets will be at unannounced intervals each round
  Double elimination with winner and loser bracket
    Winner of the winner's bracket must lose twice when facing winner
      of loser's bracket
    Winner of loser's bracket only has to lose once when facing winner
      of winner's bracket

Head-to-head competitions
  String shoot
    3 arrows with shortest distance around
  Wand/slot shoot
    6 arrows with most in the wand/slot
  Checkerboard shoot
    6 arrows must hit your own color to score
  Repeat in above order as needed
Elimination competitions - anytime odd number of archers remaining in a bracket
  Used instead of having a 'buy' archer
  1 arrow each
  Any and all arrows not in the target, the archer is eliminated
  If all arrows are in the target, the archer with the arrow furthest
    from the center is eliminated

Final round - both brackets and final
  William Tell
    Foam "apple" w/ balloon head
    Most arrows in the apple wins round
    Up to 6 arrows with archers taking turns
    Archer may choose to pass their turn, but once an arrow is passed
      you can't decide to re-shoot it
    Popping the balloon forces you to stop shooting
    If no score by either archer, re-shoot the round
