With inflation and common sense, your two cents is worth a bit more than that Gunnar and I think we still got a bargain in the making.  
This also helps with the third group that no one has mentioned.  There are pure CA people out there as well, people who dont play on the target range because they are just not into it, heavy fighters who through injury or some other reason do not or are not able to fight in the front lines anymore but still wish to armor up, and heavy fighters who wish to do something besides twiddle their thumbs in the early part of the fort battle waiting for the archers to play for a while.
Instead of forcing three groups into one mold, perhaps you are right and its time for there to be two molds.
And for that group that enjoys both target and CA?  Sounds like a win/win/win to me

Subject: [Ansteorra-archery] Royal Huntsman

I have been reading the posts and have seen many good arguments both pro and con for the Royal Huntsman tournament rules and requirements. As stated, in period, the Royal Huntsman would have been the one designated to provide game for the Crown and possibly the armies. 
Perhaps it is time, with the vast increase in number of combat archers in our Kingdom, for all archers to come together and petition the Crown to create a new champion to protect them on the field of battle. Since we already have the Kings Archer award to recognize those who show prowess in target archery, Perhaps a new Champion could be created whose primary duties would be to provide support for the Royals on the field of battle and let the Royal Huntsman concentrate on the Target copetitions. Possibly he could be called the Royal Archer which would cover either the King or Queen if both were on the field of battle.  
I have spoken to several of our Royal Huntsmen and for most the requirements to support the Crown at the target ranges at War and also on the fields of battle is an overwhelming task as many of the tournaments and battles are going on simutaneously and one person cannot be in both places at once.
A second champion from the archery community could only improve the awareness of all aspects of the archery community.
Just my two cents worth,
