Greetings Good Gentles!

For those that attended Steppes Warlord with intent to compete in the Period Archery event I bring you good news.  With the permission of the Autocrat and Archery Marshals we will be having the period shoot following the regular shoot at Lughnasad. Even better- the rules have been slightly modified to allow more folk to enter. 

There will be two divisions- Crossbow and Bow with prizes donated by Arcus Ironwyrm and Arcus Jaque the Spink.  Points will be cumalative with three scoring areas- shooting, documentation, and craftsmanship (bow, arrows, and accessories subcategories if you made your own equipment).  Generally the Period rules of Ansteorra will govern the allowed equipment with emphasis that modern finish and glue may not plasticise the bow.  Exception to Ansteoran rules is that only period materials will be considered as period although period style equipment will be allowed to enter.  Strings and crossbow rollernuts may be of plastic for safety reasons. 

Those shooting period style equipment such as fiberglas limb horsebows or aluminum or fiberglas crossbow prods may also enter but will be scored lower than fully period equipment.

All decisions of the judges/Marshals are final.
