This document is a version of the Society Target Archery Marshal's Handbook (October 2016) rules, and the Thrown Weapons Marshal's Handbook (October 2016) written in plain English, according to the New Zealand Government Style Guide for government agencies, and in line with plainenglish.gov in the US. Content specific to Lochac has been incorporated.

Our archers, throwers and marshals shouldn't need a tertiary degree to understand the rules and how to participate.

Put simply, plain English makes following the rules easier.

This handbook has been ordered so that you can easily find information on how to take part.

Yours in Service,

Angele de Savigny, Deputy Earl Marshal for Archery – Lochac (2014-2018).
