[Ansteorra-archery] Gulf War IKAC submissions

My understanding is that the IKAC keeper will update the scores and send 
them to tournament organizers this week.

I would agree that it seems to be a flawed way of choosing the 
competitors and said so from the beginning.  It seems particularly 
flawed that they ask people to submit IKAC scores during Dec and Jan 
when the IKAC is officially closed.

You are correct that if the IKAC keeper is not keeping everything 
updated in a very timely fashion leading up to war then there is no way 
for archers and marshals to check things, confirm receipt of scores, 
assure that their averages are correct, and take the time to correct any 
problems that they notice.

But, you and I are not tournament organizers or sponsors.   This year we 
can take it - or leave it and simply try to offer constructive criticism 
afterwards to perhaps improve the tournament in coming years.
