Greetings Fellow Archers! I am Edward LeKervere Royal Archer for the Kingdom of the West. I will be your faithful servant in maintaining your Current Rankings, along with the creator of this wonderful site, Sir Jonathas, who resides in the far Kingdom of Atlantia. I am assisted by Sibéal inghean Alaxandair Archery Scorekeeper for the Kingdom of the West. Please let me know if:

Bow Divisions for Adults age 16 and older-
  • Open Handbow
    In the Open Handbow Division, recurves and longbows, both period and modern, may compete using the current SCA Target Archery Marshal’s Handbook. There is no poundage limit. The rounds and general rules are the same for all Divisions. Arrows must be wood or bamboo. Fletchings should be real feathers or other period materials. Archers using metal, carbon fiber or other modern shaft materials, or plastic fletchings may shoot for fun, at the marshal's discretion, but their scores may not be submitted.

  • Open Crossbow Division
    Both modern and period style crossbows may compete using the current SCA Target Archery Marshal’s Handbook in the Open Crossbow Division. Crossbows may compete only in the crossbow Divisions. There is no limit to the number of bolts that may be shot in the speed ends. The target and scoring are the same as in the Open Division.

  • Period Handbow Division
    The main intent of the Period Division is to encourage the use and construction of gear with a more period appearance in our SCA archery. Period style longbows or recurves may compete using the current SCA Target Archery Marshal’s Handbook. They may still be shot in the Open Division as well. Period equipment may compete using the current SCA Target Archery Marshal’s Handbook.
    Release Aids: Archers may use any period style release appropriate for their bow, but are not required to do so. For example, an archer may use a glove or tab instead of a thumb ring while shooting an Eastern style bow.
    Strings: Modern string materials are allowed, as well as period materials. Please exercise caution for a period material string.
    Arrow Rests: Non period arrow rests are not allowed. Built in full or partial windows are not allowed. However, a protruding rest resulting from layers of leather or other period materials, added to the handle is allowed.
    Nockng Points: See the standard SCA Target Archery Marshal’s Handbook.
    Sights: Placement of sighting marks on bow limbs are not allowed for the Period Division.
    Arrow Nocks: Nocks shall be either self or reinforced self, or period style inset nocks, for wood, bamboo or reed arrows. They may be of any materials that are similar in appearance to period materials and also similar in style. Plastic nocks are not allowed for period handbow division.

  • Period Crossbow Division
    Only period style crossbows may compete using the standard SCA Target Archery Marshal’s Handbook in this Division. The crossbow may be shot from any position. But the crossbow may be held only by the hands, not on a sandbag, etc. Slings are not allowed for shooting, but may be used to carry the crossbow. The target and scoring are the same as in the Period Division. There is no limit to the number of bolts in the speed ends.
Targets-
  • Open Division Targets for both handbows and crossbows
    The Open Division target for both the Open Handbow and Open Crossbow Divisions is a 60 cm, FITA, five color face target. Scoring is: Gold=5, Red=4, Blue=3, Black=2, White=1. Lines count as the higher score. Arrows passing through, falling out, or bouncing off the target face count as three points.
    NOTE: At the request of several Inter-Kingdom shooters, archers are now allowed to also use 60 cm FITA field face in black and gold targets if they wish.
    Scoring is on the honor system: you may count and record your own score.

  • Period Division Targets for both handbows and crossbows
    The Period Division target, is a 60 cm. three color. The five color, FITA, 60 cm. target may be used for the Period Divisions except that the scoring is different. The scoring is: White through blue = 2 points, red and outer gold = 4 points, inner gold = 8 points. Four points are given for a pass through or bounce off.
    Those archers wishing to shoot a more period looking target are encouraged to use the period face white = 2 points, green = 4 points, gold = 8 points. Four points are given for a pass through or bounce off. Scoring is on the honor system: you may count and record your own score
For more details on targets, age or bow division please see the current IKAC rules which can be found here: Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition
  
What scores may be reported?
Scores may be posted from official SCA events and from published, sanctioned local practices. Events, should be published in The Page and in other normal ways, such as social media sites. Practices should be sanctioned by an active, local group (shire, canton, barony, etc.), and published in that group's normal calendar media pages, (social media, print or both). Events and practices should be supervised by a warranted target archery marshal. These steps insure that your event or practice is also covered by SCA Insurance.

*****You may NOT submit scores from impromptu practices, private events, or any shoot that does not meet the requirements listed above.

Reportable shoot types-
  • RR - Royal Round
  • SSAC - Society Seasonal Archery Challenge
  • IKAC - Inter Kingdom Archery Competition
  • IKCAC - Inter Kingdom Combat Archery Competition
  • GAT - Grand Archery Tournament (most novelty shoots can be entered here)
Shoot as many rounds as you want at a published event or practice. The event's scorekeeper should submit your scores for each day, for each type of bow you use, for each type of shoot.

Note that an IKAC contains two Royal Rounds and the scores from one IKAC may be submitted for both an IKAC and 2 Royal Rounds. There is a box to check when entering the IKAC to allow this to automatically be recorded.
  
Archery Ranks-
Your Official Rank is determined by the average of your highest 3 Royal Round scores in a consecutive 12 month span (except for Child and Youth divisions which use the 2 highest). This rank will never go down. The Current List will show you how you have been shooting in the most recent past 12 months. This rank may be the same as your Official Rank, or it may be lower if you have shot better in the past. The rank colors correspond to the colors of the standard FITA target used for Open Bow Division. Example: The rank of Archer is black with an RR average score of 40 to 59. A shooter with the rank of Archer shot 3 Royal Rounds, in a 12 month span, where the arrows averaged hitting in the black ring of the FITA target.
The rankings are continuously updated, usually within 48 hours of submission, and you can look at all of your scores, including those from prior competition years. If you see your current average dropping, it is probably because your highest scores are more than 12 months old.
To view the rank names, colors and point ranges, see the Official Rank Link under each age division. You can click here to go directly to adult ranks Adult Official Ranks
  
What shows up in the reports?
Since this is an interactive database, the reports are many and awesome. The complete lists show everyone kingdom wide or region-wide by bow type and adult or youth division. You can also look at every archer in a specific barony, shire, or canton.
By clicking on the number next to an archer`s name, a list of all shoots in the database for that archer appears. These can be sorted by date, shoot name, marshal, highest scores at the various distances, and total RR scores. In addition, there is a line that shows the archer`s potential highest score. You can retrieve scores older than a year...they are never lost, even though they are not included in the calculation of the current rankings.
  
How do scores get submitted?
Warranted Marshals or Designated Scorekeepers may submit scores directly to this page. If you are a marshal and want to use this site, please email me. If you are a practicing group's designated scorekeeper, you may also email me to request access.
