By your standard guess those of us who are just target archers have no value at kingdom level, so be it. It will be curious to see how many of the top shooters will not qualify for the finals and are forced to give up their spot to someone with a CA authorization.

It would seem a few people might be a little upset over the rules for the next tourney for royal huntsman. i understand your frustrations, and with great respect, might i add; As a strict target archer (with minor interest in combat archery) I would say that the standards the current royal huntsman has set for the next competition are very fair and make perfect sense. If you are to be an archer who would stand at TRM side, then you should be deemed the best of the best, and you should be held to a higher standard than just being a target archer. Or otherwise put, you better be prepared to fight for them. I know that I, myself, would not be able to win this particular tourney due to my lack of interest in combat archery. But that will not not stop me from exhibiting my skills as a target archer. I, for one, will be at the tournament for the royal huntsman to test any archers skill on the field. If they cannot best me with targets then they are not worthy
 to protect my king and queen. I would challenge all the archers of Ansteorra to do the same. Join us in helping to select the most skilled Archer to protect our crown.

Greetings unto the Greatest Archers of the known world!

TRHs will be holding a Tourney to find their Royal Huntsman and it will 
probably be held in May, they do not have a date or event yet.

This tourney will have special requirements so they are being announced 
in advance so that everyone has an opportunity to be prepared.

There will be both a target archery and a combat archery portion to the 
tourney. From these rounds the top archers will advance to the finals 
and will be asked by the Crown if they are ready and able to compete for 
the title and if they win are they ready to fulfill those duties and to 
serve the Crown. If they are not ready, or choose not to continue, they 
will be allowed to withdraw at that time and a replacement from the 
field will be called forward.

*** Here are the special rules ***
The final rounds will be Combat Archery Duels. All participants in the 
final rounds must be Combat Archery authorized and have photo ID, 
authorization card, and blue membership card (if they do not have their 
blue membership card they will have to sign a waiver).

If you are not Combat Archery authorized you must be actively working on 
becoming one and you must contact me in advance of the event to receive 
a waiver for this.

All finalists will have to pass armor inspection prior to entering the 
field. Those archers that are planning to compete for the title and wish 
to get their armor inspection done prior to the start of the tourney 
will be able to. All Combat Archery equipment will have to be inspected 
prior to the start of the tourney.

As this is a tourney to select the Archery Champion for the Kingdom of 
Ansteorra, no loaner gear of any type will be provided. Each contestant 
will be responsible for providing their own equipment.

As soon as a tourney date and site are selected I will post a 
notification to the list.

If you have any questions please contact me directly.
