IKAC consists of seven Divisions: Open Handbow, Open
Crossbow, Period Handbow, Period Crossbow, Yeoman
Division, Youth Division and Children`s Youth Division. The competition starts
on 1 February and ends on December 1.

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

will be given for each Division, ONLY to the top three archers of the winning
Kingdom, except as noted below

the Open Division prizes will be awarded for the 1st place Kingdom (Golden
Medallions) and the Second Place Kingdom (Silver Medallions).

that If more than 100 archers place in any other
division, the Keeper will furnish medallions to the Second Place Kingdom in
that division as well, but this is only if more than 100 archers place in any
division other than the Open Division. It is hoped that this will provide
incentive to have more archers shooting in divisions other than the Open. It is
further hoped that each Kingdom will encourage the efforts of their archers by
awarding further recognition regardless of placement. The final scores as well
as the monthly report will be by the Keeper sent to the Kingdom newsletters.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>THE ROUNDS:

IKAC consists of twelve rounds: two static (or `untimed`) rounds at
40, two timed (or `speed`) rounds at 40, two static rounds at 30, two
timed rounds at 30, two static rounds at 20 and two timed rounds at 20. The
static rounds will consist of six arrows each. There is no limit on the number
of arrows that can be shot in the timed round. Once again: this means that each
archer will shoot at each distance four times, two static and two timed. Note:
The distances must be measured out, not paced.

the Children and Youth Division, the distances are 10-15-20 yards and 15-20-30
yards respectively. The Yeoman Division uses the Adult ranges. Everything else
is the same.

of distances per division:

Open/Period/Period Crossbow/Open Crossbow:

Yeoman Division: 20-30-40

Youth Division: 15-20-30

Children Division: 10-15-20

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>TIME LIMITS:

is no time limit for the static rounds. Each timed (or `speed`) round
is to be in 30 seconds and as many arrows as can be loosed in that time.

archers may begin drawn and aim, to release upon command. The use of a tape recorder
with a recording of the thirty second count-down is permitted for timing the
ends. In shooting a speed end, you MUST draw your own arrows, NO ONE may hand
them to you. If an arrow is in flight at the end of 30 seconds it will be

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>OTHER IMPORTANT RULES:

  1. line-height:normal;mso-list:l14 level1 lfo37;tab-stops:list .5in`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>An IKAC has to be shot
    as one continuous shoot. An archer must declare when the IKAC is started,
    and must shoot each end until the IKAC shoot is completed.

  2. line-height:normal;mso-list:l14 level1 lfo37;tab-stops:list .5in`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>The order of the ends is
    left to the archer or the Marshal, at the discretion of the Marshal, as
    long as each IKAC score is shot as one complete, uninterrupted shoot. For
    example, an archer may shoot two Royal Rounds back to back, and then shoot
    two 30-yard timed ends and two 40-yard timed ends to complete the IKAC
    shoot. The above scenario would be fine, as long as no other arrows are
    shot for any other reason during that time.

  3. line-height:normal;mso-list:l14 level1 lfo37;tab-stops:list .5in`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>The archer may not pick
    and choose the best ends out of multiple shoots. Each shoot is a complete
    end-to-end exercise, where EACH arrow counts toward the final score

  4. line-height:normal;mso-list:l14 level1 lfo37;tab-stops:list .5in`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>Once the start of an
    IKAC shoot has been declared, ALL arrows shot MUST be counted toward the
    score. Ranging shots and practice shots in between ends are specifically

  5. line-height:normal;mso-list:l14 level1 lfo37;tab-stops:list .5in`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>The archer may take a
    reasonable amount of time to complete a shoot, but no other arrows must be
    shot for ANY purpose (including another competition), once the archer has
    declared the start of his/her IKAC shoot. If that happens, that IKAC score
    cannot be counted.

  6. line-height:normal;mso-list:l14 level1 lfo37;tab-stops:list .5in`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>The Keeper of the IKAC
    retains the right to question any score submitted. The name of the
    Marshal in charge of the shoot must be clearly shown on the score
    submission, and a contact number or email for the Archery Marshal in
    charge of the shoot must be provided so that the Keeper of the IKAC may
    contact him or her after the shoot in case clarifications are required.
    Please do not provide the name of the overall Marshal for the class=GramE>event, I need the contact information for the Archery
    Marshal that supervised the actual IKAC shoot. The Marshal must have
    knowledge of the shoot, and its details. If this information is not
    provided and questions arise, the Keeper of the IKAC may decide not to
    count the score submission.
    If this happens, the submitter of the
    score will be informed of the decision, and a mention of this fact will be
    posted on the web site, so that others may provide input, if necessary.
    NOTE: I highly recommend that you enter all scores using the on-line form,
    which will improve the speed of review and posting.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>EQUIPMENT:

must conform to the rules specified for SCA Target Archery. Please refer to
these rules when shooting the IKAC. The official SCA archery rules can be found
on the SCA web page at
style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>www.sca.org style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>, then
click on the `Combat and Chivalry` link. Note: additional
restrictions exist for shooting in the Period and Period Crossbow Divisions.
Please see the appropriate section on this page.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>GENERAL RULES:

may compete in all Divisions. Archers may shoot both recurve
and longbow in the Open Division and enter the Period Division separately. If
you shoot a period style bow, you must shoot separately in Open and Period to
enter a score for both Divisions (i.e. you cannot take one IKAC shot and count
it for both the Open and the Period division, you must shoot two separate
IKACs). Crossbows, both modern and period, may shoot only in the Crossbow
Divisions. Youth and Children`s Division rules are slightly different. See the
Children`s Division paragraph below.

competition may be shot at any official Kingdom or local event (regular
practice sessions which are periodically announced in the appropriate
newsletter count as official events--otherwise, official events are all those
announced in the appropriate Kingdom or local newsletter). Events that fall outside
of the normal IKAC season may be granted official scoring if requested to the
Keeper well in advance in writing (AND with approval of the

may shoot for official score at as many competitions as they can attend, and
may shoot for official score, in each Division, once each day of a multi-day
event. Archers may shoot more than once in a particular Division per day, but
only their top complete round of that day will be officially counted.

line-height:normal`>IMPORTANT style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>: You may NOT pick and
choose the best scores from multiple ends to put together your IKAC score - See
the section above marked `Other Important Rules`. Please pay special
attention to the additional rules now in effect as stated in the section above.
Any score may be questioned by the Keeper, and semblances of impropriety may
lead to a score being questioned or discarded. Although all archers are
believed to be honorable gentles in the Society, enough issues have happened
over time that questions may be raised. It is the responsibility of each archer
to hold himself or herself as well as others to the highest standards of our

line-height:normal`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>NOTE: style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``> The Keeper encourages each
archer to proactively ask questions in cases of misunderstanding or confusion
regarding rules or scores. Please feel free to contact the Keeper via email or
phone (see the Contact section) if any questions arise.

setting up and shooting the IKAC, all necessary precautions should be taken to
insure the safety of all archers and bystanders. A warranted Marshal must be
present at each IKAC shoot (an archer who is a Marshal may submit scores for
himself/herself). The name of the Marshal must be submitted along with
the score in order for the score to count. Contact information for the Marshal MUST
be submitted along with the score, in case there are questions with the
submission (see OTHER IMPORTANT RULES section above). This is very important.
If you are a Marshal, please be aware of this. Archers are counting on you for
their scores to be counted, please assist by providing your contact

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>DISABLED ARCHERS:

the judgment of the Marshal in charge of the archery competition, and subject
to the rules of each Kingdom and the Society, allowance may be made for various
disabilities. For example, visually impaired archers may have someone tell them
where their arrows strike the target. Archers in wheelchairs may shoot while
seated. Archers unable to cock their crossbows may have someone cock it for
them, etc.

line-height:normal`>`TheThe open Division target is a
60 cm, five color face.

line-height:normal`> style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>NOTE: style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``> At the request of
several IKAC shooters, archers are now allowed to also use 60 cm FITA
black/white targets if they wish. These targets can have a more period look.
They are commonly used in mundane archery competition for Field Archery at
distances from 30-60 yards. They can be bought from
most archery distributors, including Lancaster Archery. The Keeper is
interested in feedback of the use of these targets, both
positive or
negative. NOTE: The
use of this target is entirely optional. Archers can continue to use the
usual FITA 5-color 60 cm target without issues.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>SCORING

the Open and Crossbow Divisions scoring is: Gold=5, Red=4, Blue=3, Black=2,
White=1. Lines count as the higher score. Arrows passing through, falling class=GramE>out, or bouncing off the target face count as three points.

winning Kingdom will be determined by averaging the highest scores of the three
top-scoring archers for each Kingdom. In the case of a tie, the Kingdom with
the narrowest point spread will be declared the winner.

must be postmarked within thirty days of being shot to be counted as official.
Scores may be submitted after this date by asking for approval from the Keeper.
The final scores must be received in writing by the Keeper no later than
December 31st
. The results of each competition should be sent as soon as
possible after they are shot, so they may be tabulated and each month`s scores
sent out to the Kingdom newsletters. The Keeper`s interest is in recording all
scores however, so if the deadline passes do not hesitate to submit your scores
anyway. The Keeper may contact you to obtain clarification before entering the
scores. NOTE: You are highly encouraged to enter all scores using the
on-line form. This will allow me to review and post scores within 24-48 hours,
as well as make it much easier to enter scores, and to keep track of any

you submit scores in any fashion other than the on-line form, then the
submitted results must include:

of event, date, place, Marshal-in Charge`s name and contact information
(email or phone - must be archer marshal that officiated the archery shoot)
archers` SCA name, archer`s mundane name, archer`s group, archer`s` Kingdom,
scores by end, round and total, type of bow e.g. recurve,
longbow or crossbow (crossbows should be listed as either modern or period
style), and Division. When the Division (Open, Period or Crossbow) is not
included the score cannot be counted. For Children and Youth division
score, you must include the age (as of 1 Feb) of the archer also.

must be typed or printed clearly. You may wish to send a copy of the scores to
your Kingdom archery Officer, but that is left to each Kingdom`s discretion.
Please check your Kingdom`s rules on this. You should always save a copy of
scores submitted for your files, or in case further information is requested
(this is very important, if issues arise). Scores may be sent by e-mail to
ikac -at- scores-sca -dot- org. You are
highly encouraged the on-line submission form, or at least the Excel
spreadsheet, both available on the IKAC web site.

line-height:normal`>NOTE1: style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``> If you do NOT use the
on-line form, then the contact information for the Archery Marshal that held
the shoot must be included with the submission, so that the Keeper may contact
him or her in case of future questions. The Marshal must have knowledge of the
shoot and of the archers that participated in it. Failure to provide such
information may lead to score being rejected, if there are questions raised and
the Keeper is unable to obtain enough information to validate the scores.
Please see the section labeled IMPORTANT OTHER RULES above.
style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>

The Keeper needs to have the breakdown in score for each round. Scores that
do not include this information may be rejected

After the Keeper receives the scores, they will be posted on the web site. The
Keeper receive several thousand scores during a
season, and on occasion mistakes do occur, either by the Keeper or the
person(s) submitting the scores. The on-line form removes the possibility of
mistakes, which is one more reason why you are very highly encouraged to use
it. For other methods of submission, occasionally e-mails are not delivered,
and marshals forget to submit scores. Also some Kingdoms centralize their
scorekeeping and funnel all submissions through one person, which may also
result in delays, sometime substantial. It is your responsibility to make
sure that your scores are posted correctly
. Because people check each
other`s scores, and make decisions on whether to shoot based on the posted
scores starting this year the Keeper may choose to enforce a one-month rule
on corrections
. The Keeper will accept corrections to the scores for only
one month after they have been received or shot, although exceptions may be
made at the Keeper`s discretion if information is provided. There will be no
exceptions after 1 November, however, unless initiated by the Keeper himself.
This means the Keeper will typically not accept a notice in December that a
score in May is missing. Take an interest, and check the IKAC web site to make
sure your score is posted. Please notify the Keeper and/or his Deputy as soon
as possible of any problems. Since we are all volunteers in our Society, please
keep that in mind and always try to be corteous.
Remember that mistakes may not be anyone`s fault, and that everyone, the Keeper
most of all, very much wants to ensure that all archers` scores are posted
promptly and accurately.

As of 2003 I no longer need to know if you are using handbow
`sights` (ie simple limb markings) or not,
although including it in your submission will not cause the score to be
rejected or be prejudicial in any way. I also do not need to know the Archer`s
SCA membership number, although feel free to include the information if your
Kingdom requires it or it makes it easier to submit a score.

VERY HIGH SCORES: Without question, throughout the years by far the most
unpleasant part of being Keeper has been dealing with the flood of emails that
very high scores have generated from others.

run the competition since 2000, and having tens of thousands of scores in the
database, I can pretty much chart the progress of the archers of the SCA at
large, and that of any individual archer who has ever shot an IKAC. But lately
this matter has become worse, and it is my strongly held belief that the constant
doubting of scores is damaging to the competition, because it generates the
feeling that not everyone is playing by the same rules. As proof I can offer
the many letters that I have received from archers who have written to me
saying they are no longer shooting the IKAC for this very reason. Therefore I
have addressed this strongly in a variety of ways.

I firmly believe in the honor system that is at the heart of most of the SCA`s
competitions, clearly something had to be done to strengthen everyone`s belief
in the IKAC as an open and level playing field. Therefore, even though going
forward most scores are entered on-line, I review each
score in detail before I allow them to be posted. I reserve the right to reject
any score for any reason. If a score is rejected, I will inform the marshal of
the fact and try to get more information regarding individual scores if they
are well outside the mean.
I would like to accept all scores, but the
integrity of the competition will take precedence no matter what. In the end, I
personally guarantee to each and every archer in the SCA that everyone in the
competition is playing by the same rules, and my guarantee will include
personal observation, wherever required. So going forward you can safely assume
that if a score is posted, it deserves to be there.

the Open Handbow Division, recurves
and longbows, both period and modern, may compete by the standard SCA class=SpellE>Handbow rules. There is no poundage limit. The rounds and
general rules are the same for all Divisions.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>OPEN CROSSBOW DIVISION

modern and period style crossbows may compete in the Open Crossbow Division. Crossbows
may compete only in the crossbow Divisions

compound crossbows. Sights are allowed as specified in the SCA rules. Crossbow
and bolt must conform to the SCA archery rules. There is no minimum or maximum
weight for the prod. Any type of lock mechanism is allowed. The crossbow may be
shot from any position. But the crossbow may be held only by the hands, not on
sandbags, etc. Slings are not allowed for shooting, but may be used to carry
the crossbow.

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.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>PERIOD HANDBOW DIVISION

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 still be shot in the Open Division as

line-height:normal`> style=`font-size:14.0pt;mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>PERIOD

line-height:normal`>Period Crossbows may not have a
modern style lock nor a modern trigger. They must have
a period-style lock and release mechanism. The Lock and Release Mechanism
should be documentable to 16th century or earlier. If there is a question about
the mechanisms being in period, then the Marshal in Charge of the shoot may
request proof or allow its one time use at that event, until proof is provided.
Archers using crossbows that might be questioned should be encouraged to bring

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:3`> mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>PERIOD DIVISION EQUIPMENT

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:4`> `Times New Roman``>ARROWS:

shafts of any wood, cane or bamboo are allowed. Fletching must be of feathers.
Except for crossbows, which may use other materials used in
period for bolts, such as parchment, etc.
Crossbows may use either
period style bolts or cut down wood arrow shafts. Points may be of any style
except for broadheads.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:4`> `Times New Roman``>BOWS:

style recurves and longbows of any material are
allowed. Modern style recurves or longbows with
full or partial center cut risers are not allowed.
There is no weight
limit, maximum or minimum. Crossbows will shoot only in the Crossbow Divisions.

style bows are defined as: Any style of bow that can be documented as used in
pre 1600 archery, from Stone age bows to English
longbows. Construction materials should be mainly those that were used in
period for the making of that style of bow. Modern materials such as synthetic
glues, finishes, fibers (strings) or artificial sinew are allowed as long as
their use does not give an unfair advantage in performance over period
materials. Fiberglass may be used as a substitute for horn and or sinew in the
construction of period style recurve bows such as
Arab, Turkish, Mongol, etc., but no modern features such as full or partial
center cut handles are allowed. This last is important. Many modern longbows
have some center-cut on their handle part (riser in a recurve).
If that is the case, the bow is not allowed in the Period division. A class=SpellE>protuding shelf resulting from layers of leather on the
handle is allowed, however. The bow must have the appearance of a period
laminate bow. Composite longbows (of different woods or backed with sinew or
rawhide, etc.) are allowed. Bows do not have to conform to the persona of the

and finishing count as having made the entire bow. Laminate bows where the
archer does the final assembling and tillering count.
Crossbows where the archer does the final assembly and tuning

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.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:4`> `Times New Roman``>STRINGS:

string materials are allowed, as well as period materials. Please exercise
caution for a period material string.

line-height:normal;mso-outline-level:4`> `Times New Roman``>ARROW RESTS:

period arrow rests are not allowed. Built in full or partial windows are not
allowed. See fuller description above.

period nocking points are not allowed.

standard five color 60 cm. IKAC target may be used,

Royal Round, Open and Period Divisions may be shot and recorded on the five
color face.

a 60 cm. three color face.

archers wishing to shoot a more period looking target are encouraged to make
and use the period face. The target is based on the one from the Luttrell
Psalter. The target represents a two ring target with a center peg. The peg was
used to hold the target to the butt. Splitting the peg or pin was the best
shot, so those arrows hitting dead center score highest. The colors are from
the inner ring or peg to outer ring: Or, Vert, and
Argent. It is scored: Argent=2, Vert=4 and Or=8. Four
points are given for a pass through or bounce off.

target face is equal in size to the current five ring,
60 cm. target now in use for the IKAC. The target may be made by hand by using
a compass. The diameters of the rings are 6 cm., 24
cm. and 60 cm. The black line between the rings may be no wider than 2 mm.
Yellow may be substituted for the gold and white for the silver. The class=SpellE>vert should be a dark green. The back side of a 60 class=GramE>cm., five color target may be used by carefully tracing the

without age (as of 1 Feb) will be rejected.

all of the Youth Divisions, the age of the child as of 1 February is the age of
record for this year`s competition. However the spirit of the rules is that
kids should shoot in the division that challenges them most, and marshals are
strongly encouraged to facilitate this. Therefore, if a child who is 9 on 1
February turns 11 during the year, the child can continue to shoot in the
Children division. This also applies to the Youth division, if a child who is
12 on 1 February turns 14 during the season can continue to shoot in the Youth
division. This also applies to the Yeoman division, if a child who is 15 on 1
February turns 16 during the season can continue to shoot in the Youth

NOTE FOR Younger Divisions: Note that shooting in multiple divisions is against
the rules for the Youth Divisions ( up to 15 years of
If a
kid is interested in moving up from the Children to the Youth division, from
the Youth to the Yeomen, or from the Yeoman to the Adult (something we very
strongly encourage, as it is always in the interest of the archer to test
themselves against harder competition
) send a notification to the Keeper or
his Deputy for Youth Archery, so that we can adjust the scores accordingly.
Without such notification, if a child archer has scores in multiple divisions,
it will be up to the Deputy to make a determination in each archer`s case,
based on the scores submitted. In general the guidelines are at that the age
(as of 1 Feb) of the child at the beginning of the season will be given
deference, but if the child for
example shows that they can comfortably shoot at the level of Youth, Yeoman, or
Adult, then the Deputy and the Keeper will review the scores and make a
determination on which division should be the one that counts for the season,
with the other scores being rejected
. Please note that in all such
cases the emphasis is on figuring out the actual aptitude of the child based on
their scores, and the amount of details in the scores (partial results for
example) as well as past scores typically give us a pretty good idea where a
particular archer should compete. But we do recommend that marshals be
cognizant of this issue, and take the initiative to contact the Deputy or the
Keeper in case of children who have shot in multiple divisions. Finally, please
note that the Deputy may accept scores for a child in a particular division for
this season, but based on the child`s performance may ask that the child be
moved to the next more challenging division in the coming season, the emphasis
again being on placing the child in the division that poses the most
appropriate challenge for their skills.

Youth Divisions are meant ONLY to help children get interested and
started in archery and put in the time to start developing their skills. class=GramE>As specifically mentioned in the rules, children who already shoot
at the level of adults should be shooting in the Adult divisions.
who may be younger than 9 but are able to reach 30 yards should be encouraged
to shoot in the Youth division. Youth who may be younger than 12 but are able
to reach 40 yards should be encouraged to shoot in the Yeoman division. This is
not a competition where a very accomplished archer can get yet another medal,
but a competition meant to get kids started in archery and interested in the
sport. This is the spirit of this competition, and I ask each marshal`s
assistance in understanding and meeting the spirit of the competition. In the
interest of the competition, I will be enforcing this last point.

for the Children, Youth, and Yeoman divisions will be limited to 200 or below
style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``> (higher scores will be
rejected). Also, I don`t want to get multiple scores that all hover
around 200, or scores that clearly show the archer came very close to 200 and
stopped to stay right at the limit. I ask you to please respect the spirit of
the competition and understand that the goal of the competition is strictly to
get kids get started and develop. Please assist Osmond and I avoid unfortunate
situations. Those scores will be rejected. I thank you in advance for your
assistance on this.

children`s Division is open to all children age 9 and under (as of 1 Feb)
style=`mso-fareast-font-family:`Times New Roman``>. However, children that
shoot with adult-sized bows or crossbows should be shooting in the Youth,
Yeoman or Adult Divisions. Children that shoot in the other divisions may
shoot in the Children`s Division. Participants in the Children`s
Division may shoot with either bows or crossbows. The age (as of 1 Feb) of the
Child must be specified when sending in a score report. The target used
in the Children`s Division is the same as the Open Handbow
or Crossbow target. The rules are the same as in the Open Division, except
that the distances are 10 yards, 15 yards and 20 yards
(instead of 20 class=GramE>,30 and 40). Note that medallions will be awarded in the
same way as the other divisions, i.e. the average of the top three children in
each Kingdom will be counted for score. However, I would be interested in
finding a way to give something to each child that participates. If you have
any ideas on what would be good rewards for children, please contact me.

NOTE: no scores above 200 will be accepted in the Children division. If a score
is submitted for more than 200 in the Child division, it will be rejected.
