True, but we can be subjected to the undeserved wrath of those whose scores have not been posted.

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.-EA Susan McMahill wrote: 

I am very discouraged to note that the scores that I submitted back in the first half of February still have not been posted. Now I know that at least one of the gentles who shot an IKAC that day was doing so specifically for Gulf War Qualification. At this point he has at least one score that has not been submitted according to the current standings. I do not know if he has any others from any other location, but at this point I am extremely disturbed to see that there is no proof of his score being shot. While this special shoot was laudable in theory, I am concerned that there may be many, MANY people who should be eligible to shoot in this competition, who will not be permitted to. Until the scorekeeper can get his act together in a more timely manner, I would discourage utilizing this method again. The last update was on Feb 3. Now that it is less than a week before Gulf, I am sure that there are a lot of archers who are concerned about averages which are actually higher than shown or who, like our Barony, have scores that have not been included at all. How do we know if they will be included? How do we know if they are accurate and that all scores will be accounted for? Lyneya de Grey Well-behaved women Seldom make history - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
