Greetings to the archers of the SCA.

This is to inform you that Lorenzo il Confuso, the Keeper of the Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition is stepping down after sixteen years of running the IKAC and IKCAC. We should thank him for his time and effort that he has put into this Society wide archery competition that has been in existence for almost forty years now.

I, Sir Jon FitzRauf, as the originator of the IKAC and IKCAC and as Keeper for the first twenty years have decided that the next keeper of the IKAC and IKCAC will be Earl Mika Longbow of the Outlands. Who I believe will do an excellent job of running the IKAC and IKCAC and keep the scores updated and current on the SCA scores site.

I, Earl Mika Longbow, having shot the IKAC for many of those years look forward to keeping it running smoothly for many years to come. Beside myself, I will be adding two scorekeepers; each will have a set of kingdoms they will be responsible for. This will aid in getting scores posted promptly, and if life happens, we have a system in hand to handle that and keep things running on an even keel.

You may contact Earl Mika at: ikac@scores-sca.org

Welcome to the Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition and Inter-Kingdom Combat Archery Competition Official page!! The Inter-kingdom Archery Competition, IKAC for short, and the Inter-Kingdom Combat Archery Competition, IKCAC for short, are year-long target archery tournaments that allow all the archers in the Knowne World to compete in an SCA-wide competition on behalf of their Kingdoms. Each year, up to a thousand archers from almost every Kingdom submit thousand of scores in a bid to win the tournament. It is a great way for archers not just to represent their Kingdom and possibly win a great prize, but also a way for archers to compete against other archers in different parts of the Knowne World, and chart their progress in an SCA-wide setting. The competition is open to all archers, beginning and experienced. It is a great way to develop skill, and very rewarding as you see your skill increase and move up the ranks. And at all times you will be representing your Kingdom!. The competition has multiple divisions, including general target archery, period archery, combat archery, and special divisions for younger archers. The IKAC/IKCAC competition has running for over 30 years.
In the following pages you will find information about the competition, current scores for this season and scores for the past ten years of the competition. The IKAC/IKCAC is one of the unique competitions in the SCA, as it unites archers from far off places through their common love of archery. I hope you will find the competition interesting, and rewarding, as many have through the years. If you have any questions, comments, or criticisms, do not hesitate to write to me Earl Mika Longbow.

The Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition

The IKAC consists of six Divisions: Open Handbow, Open Crossbow, Period Handbow, Period Crossbow, Children s Division and Youth Division. The competition starts on 1 February and ends on December 1 and any archer can participate by shooting at either an official practice or an official event.

In all Divisions, each Kingdom`s score will be the average of the top 3 scorers. However, all scores submitted for ALL archers that participate in the competition will be shown in the database on the Scores page.

Prizes will be given for each Division, ONLY to the first place Kingdom`s team of three archers (Golden Medallions), with the exception of the Open Division, which will also award the second place Kingdom`s team of three archers (Silver Medallions).

The IKAC is very similar to a normal Royal Round, except that it has more ends. There are specific rules for each division, and they can be found on the IKAC rules page. Please make sure to read the rules carefully prior to participating.

To ease and assist recording the scores at the range these score sheets has been developed in Excel:

The Inter Kingdom Combat Archery Competition

The Inter Kingdom Combat Archery Competition, IKCAC for short, is a target competition shot with combat gear, which provides the combat archer of the SCA with an opportunity to compete with other archers from all Kingdoms of the Known World. It also provides an SCA wide standard of comparison for combat archery skills.

The IKCAC, unlike the IKAC, consists of only one division. The starting date is 1 February and the ending date is December 1. As in the IKAC, each Kingdom`s score is made up of the average of the top 3 scorers, and medallions are awarded to the top 3 archers of the winning Kingdom. As with the IKAC, all participants` scores are shown on the Scores page, allowing each archer to track their progress and compare themselves with other archers in the Knowne World.

There are very specific rules for the IKCAC, please make sure to read the rules on the IKCAC rules page. On that page you can also see a drawing and picture for the IKCAC typical target.

To ease and assist recording the scores at the range this Score Sheet has been developed in Excel, or this Score Sheet in PDF. Details on building a the IKCAC target can be found here.

Who is reviewing IKAC Scores?

The IKAC is now being run much like a very large Kingdom. That is the Keeper will be the top level oversight, reviewing the rules each season, ensuring the submitted scores are getting reviewed, and providing a person to appeal to should a score get denied in review. The Keeper now has three assistant Scorekeepers who will be doing the actual review and approval of scores for different portions of the IKAC. This setup provides cover for modern life intrusions and an appeal path by a different person about any disagreements.

The positions as they now stand are:

  • Earl Mika (Outlands)- Keeper of the IKAC
  • THL Gregge the Archer (Atlantia)- Assistant Scorekeeper
