Office of the Archer General
The Kingdom Archer General is a deputy of the Kingdom Earl Marshal and reports to both to the Kingdom Earl Marshal and the Society Archery Marshal and Society Thrown Weapons Marshal. It is the Archer General's responsibility to ensuring the safe practice of Archery and Thrown Weapons throughout the Kingdom.
The Archer General has several assistants to help in sure the safety, teaching archery and weapons construction, authorizing individuals and keeping scores and records. These individuals are known Deputies Archer General (DAGs), and without their help, this job would be impossible.
Baronial and Shire Captains of the Archers and Authorizing Marshals report to the Kingdom Archer General. These reports are made on a monthly basis and should include any issues that have come up, the number of archers at practice that month and, most importantly, any problems, injuries or safety concerns. Each year, a Domesday report should be sent that includes a roster of all archers, inventory of all equipment owned by the group, and a summary of the year's activities. Copies of these reports should also be provided to the Knight Marshal of your group and anyone else as your group deems fit. These reports allow the Archer General to report to the Kingdom Earl Marshal, who in turn reports to the Society Marshal, and to the Society Marshal's Deputies for Archery and Thrown Weapons.
