Well then instead of changing THR tourneys into a "one or the other" type, it sounds like ADDING a tournament for target archers would be more suitable. And for those who like to shoot both styles would have more opportunities to play.

I'm not sure how me being able to get an extra round worth of points means you have to be that much better. If we get to that final round and we're close and I can shoot CA and you can't, then you're darn right I should be able to have that advantage. I worked for it. I practiced every week and learned the same as an archer perfecting his speed round.
> I've seen complaints with many different Formats... Crossbows being allowed to sit, Shooting at 3d targets, Static targets @ unknown ranges without a chance to practice on those targets, Even if a target was setup for warmup people wanted to figure out which leaf they we're going to use to Bullseye those "unknown" distances.

But if there's a round your not going to do well in or not going to be able to compete at all in... Yeah... do better in the rounds you can compete in. And trust than any archer that can be near the top at the end of the competition and then load on armor and switch to blunts and dominate THAT field too... well then they are what we call "Champions".
