    Angry Another Tournament, another breach of 307.

    I was at another tournament at the weekend and again an archer on the line in breach of 307. Why do the tournament organisers make it clear on the entry forms that the dress code will apply and then ignore it at the shoot? Is this something that the judges should be enforcing?

    Rant over!

    Is this just a wind up, or is this just a posting by a moron?

    You'd rather an archer was simply sent home or made to shoot in their underpants?? The TO/DOS are entitled to make an exception, especially if it was a new archer, on the reminder for future events.

    To be honest, given that an archer could wear "yummy sushi" pajamas, or a latex gimp suit on the line, and still be within the rules, who really cares about denim...?

    One of these days, rule 307 will really bite the dust, and then only camo will be banned (at wrs comps only). If they can ever come up with a sensible definition of "camo"...
