[Ansteorra-archery] Third Quarter 2008 Royal Round Keeper Report

I didn't say or mean to imply that it couldn't be done at all events. I said that it couldn't be done at ours since we have as part of our championship a Seneca Run. That is where archers shoot at a target until they hit it, and then advance to the next until at the end they shot at a IKCAC target using Combat equipment. Assuming an average of 6 minutes per run (times are recorded for placement) our 24 participants would take over 2 and 1/2 hours to complete this portion of the event. Many were novices and took far longer until it was necessary to institute an 8 minute time limit.
Some events don't lend themselves to the shooting of a RR. Some can. We really wanted to have some RRs shot in the afternoon, but the numbers were against us. We were equipped to do so, but it wasn't meant to be.

This is perhaps true but if you get the number on the line it can be done fairly quickly.  We have done as high as 34 archers in 2 hours at Warlord as part of the Bowman's tourney.  It generally takes about 30 minutes to shoot a Royal Round for a line of archers and you can usually get at least 2 and sometimes as high as 4 archers per target round.

The reason I have an average is that I shot an IKAC (and therefore had a RR extracted from that) at Bordermarch Baronial. Some events lend themselves to be able to do just as you suggest and I think personally that it's a great idea. However not all events  can do this. Having just helped run the Gate's Edge event this weekend, we just had way too many people competing to make allowances for folks to shoot RRs.  It's a great idea though.

I am more interested in having fun and using archery as a relaxing diversion from my mundane life. As a result, I am not willing to drive 3 or 4 hours roundtrip, even carpooling, to attend a special practice just so I can get an away score. It takes two very valuable resources: my money and my time. I think this recent push to have special practices has replaced holding Royal Round shoots at events.> > When I was in the Outlands, at any event at which archery was held, there was also an opportunity to shoot a Royal Round (also, sometimes events that had no other archery scheduled would still hold a RR). Every effort was made to hold one. This made it much easier for the casual archer to still participate and track his or her scores, because if you're at the event anyway, why not shoot a RR and get that away score? Heck, there was a time when my RR score was made up of only away scores shot at events.> > I believe the Outlands policy was the correct way to go, which is why since I started running archery at Mooneschadowe Guardian/Triumphe 3 years ago, I have held a RR. I will be continuing this tradition this year, and for as long as I run archery for that event.> > People can hold special practices if they wish. I am not saying they should stop.
