    It's suncalc.org (I usually use the .net version, but they're having issues loading google maps at the mo), but you can go to any location and set the date/time to whatever you'd like and it'll show you the position of the sun, and a whole bunch of other data. I have used it occasionally when I want to check the position of the sun for lighting at locations.

    Not sure I get your point. A problem arose which was quickly dealt with by a Judge. And to quote Bimble "In the shading incident, both are (or have been) GBR archers who are used to potential distractions. Tom could have let Lee struggle with the light, but helped and they ended up tying for first."
    ​A fine example of "Union, Trueheart and Courtesy" I would have thought.

    Itís the mind numbing pedantry and stuffy attitudes.

    Does it really matter?

    No.

    I get the impression there were other archers present who were not permitted the same privilege... so maybe not quite so fair and reasonable.
