Your Excellency, thank you for that general reminder.
For my students and archers I remind then that while winning this
tournament means that they are committing to serve Their Majesties
during the tenure as Royal Huntsman, it should also be viewed as a
commitment to represent the entire archery community of Ansteorra during
that same time.
Before competing in the tournament I urge them to consider if they can
fulfill that commitment by asking themselves:
1. Am I prepared to compete in the Royal Huntsman Tournament having
all the equipment necessary, without loan, to complete the
2. Should I win, Am I able to shoulder the burden of being the most
visible and constant face of the Ansteorran archery community
before Crown during that time?
3. Should I win, Am I able to clothe, equip myself, and behave so
that I always present the most positive possible impression of
Ansteorra and the Ansteorran Archery Community?
4. Should I win, Am I able to commit to attending and standing as
Royal Huntsman at the majority of the Royal Presence events
throughout the entire kingdom during my tenure as Royal Huntsman?
Particularly those with any sort of archery activities.
5. Should I win, Am I able to attend Gulf Wars (if during a Gulf
War's reign) to serve the crown and lend my strength to assure our
kingdoms success in the archery activities there.
This scratches the surface, but I encourage my students to at minimum
consider these before they compete in the Royal Huntsman Tournament.
