[Ansteorra-archery] Tor and water-bearing..

Actually, the blue waterjug and table it was sitting on at the Archery Range
on Sat belonged to Ld. Lughaidh Mac Sheoinin, Royal Huntsman of Ansteorra.
Ld. Lothar helped me drag it from the Arkham camp, along with some oranges
that Lothar's Lady cut up and shared around.
I am very interested in both target and combat archery, however, my mundane
life prevents me from spending much time or money on the pursuit of such at
this time. I try to make most events and end up hanging out on the archery
field most of the time. If anyone ever needs anything, water, snacks,
sunscreen, a photo taken, I am usually able to procure such things from my
stores or those of others who are willing to share. Please allow me to be of
service... Just holler for 'Rose!'
