Might want to refresh your memory about the Kings Archer award.  From 
the Ansteorran College of Heralds website about awards.

"This award is given to those who have striven to further their skill in 
combat and target archery, who are involved in the arts and basic 
heraldry, display courtly graces and manners, and chivalrous conduct on 
and off the field. The insignia for this award is a braid of green and 
black silken cords, hung from a brass ring."

It is not but an non-armigerous award for archery.  The next step up 
would the Sable Talon which can be given for any Marshallete activity.  
We really don't see a real split in the different types of activities 
until we get the grants.
