A special SILVER Medallion will be awarded to the following participant in the Youth Division:
** Miranda Macandrew (9) of An Tir for superior skill.
Miranda, due to high scores in 2012 and even higher scores her first
try in 2013 in the Children's Division, was advanced to Youth Division
during 2013. Her first score submitted for Youth was 203, and she was
then advanced again to Yeoman Division, where she finished in third
place for her kingdom, with a score of 108!! It is truly amazing skill
for such a young archer, and I am happy to be able to reward her for
her efforts and talent.

III. 2014 RULE CHANGES
1) Period Crossbow division - 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 documentation
2) All Divisions - Currently, archers use the standard 5-color 60 cm
FITA target. Upon 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.
3) IMPORTANT!!: Younger divisions changes:
If you have any questions or concerns about the rule changes above, please contact me.
- Children division - (2013) age 10 and under --> (2014) age 9 and under
- Youth Division - (2013) age 13 and under --> (2014) age 12 and under
- Youth Division - (2013) distances of 10-20-30 --> (2014) distance of 15-20-30
- An additional note is that archers in the younger divisions may be asked to move to a higher division during the season, at the discretion of the Keeper and Deputy Keeper (when a Marshal fails to do so in keeping with the spirit of the rules)
IV. LAST NOTE:
I am considering some changes for the 2015 season, and I would welcome your input throughout the season on these topics:
Finally, thanks to all the archers and marshals that took the time and effort to shoot the IKAC for the 2013 season. I look forward to an even
better season this coming year. For all questions, issues and comments, please send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
- a) I am concerned about the continuing lack of participation in the iKCAC, and I am wondering whether the IKCAC competition is worth continuing at this point. I would very much like your feedback on this
- b) I have been considering for a while a reworked scoring system that would reward participation, with bonus points added the more scores are
submitted. I would very much welcome feedback on this idea, as well as any other ideas that you may have that would encourage participation,
and reward archers for putting in the time and effort to shoot multiple IKACs.
I expect the medallions for the 2013 season to be available by the end of March.
The 2014 Season starts on 1 February 2014.
