Well then my suggestion would be to start planning and organizing now!
We were totally slaughtered last year.  It wasn't due to a lack of
skill, but rather a lack of organization.  I think the battle was the
best two-out-of-three, and Trimaris won 2-0.  They were completely
organized and followed a well thought out and practiced plan.  They were
lead by an archer-knight, Sir Erica, and her 4 red belted squires.

When it was time for the battle to begin, Ansteorra had *9* archers
total present ready to fight.  They assigned all neutral kingdom's
archers to Ansteorra, (before opening day and all alliances were
determined) and we were still outnumbered.

Archers in Trimaris are held in very high regards.  They have a very
large archery community.  They have many knights and squires that are
archers.  I've heard rumor that there is currently a waiting list to
order baldur blunts because orders are coming out of Florida faster than
they can be produced.  In order to take this point we must amass a much
larger force of archers than we have now  And we must plan, communicate,
and practice a well thought out proven battle strategy.

We won the static archery war point last year for the first time in Gulf
War history.  It was scored by taking the top 7 scores submitted from
each kingdom and totaled up.  The highest cumulative score of the top 7
was the determining factor.

Let's make next year a continuation of firsts and take the combat
archery war point!

Greetings Everyone,

At the Gulf War meeting this weekend some plans were made for the war
point battles at Gulf War.  The Town Battle was added as a War Point.
Unfortunately, that left and odd number of war points and means that an
overwhelming tie would have been impossible.  Therefore, another war
point was needed.  It was decided that the 14th War Point will be the

Yep, that's right, the Combat Archers of this Kingdom will be
responsible for a War Point all on their own.  This is both a great
honor and a big responsibility for the archers of Ansteorra.

Currently the plans are for the Archers Only Battle War Point to be held
on Thursday Morning.  However, we will likely have some other archers
only friendship battles earlier in the week to help us prepare.

Start beating the war drums.  Sharpen your arrows and ready your bows.
