The competition had a good spectator attendance and was composed of
three rounds. The first round the archers shot a vertical wand shoot.
The top dozen continued to round two, where they shot at a French knight
(well-painted by Lord Lawrence du Paulson). The knight was mostly
obscured by a stack of haybales ten feet in front of him to equalize
crossbows with bows. The top six went on to the final round where they
shot at a rabbit being pulled along a path. The winner was Lord Tesmond
Three children later shot at the French knight and a moving squirrel at
a much closer distance. Aleczander Lawrenceson was the winner.
I want to thank Arthur Blackmoon and Thomas Quilliam for assisting with
the marshalling, and all those who helped move bales and such. I hope
people had fun.
