Sunday Sept. 6, 2009 we plan to hold our third Archer's Challenge &
Pot Luck Revel on the Eastfield college archery range starting at 10
AM in the morning. This is a period style archery contest sponsored
by participating members of your central region's Arc d' Or in an effort
increase local participation in the SCA, archery and other activities
related to both. Everyone is welcome to join us, come share you're
skills and interests with others present while watching your region's
archers compete in challenging & at times very amusing contests of
We do request you dress in garb & bring something to share for pot
luck, pray keep in mind the weather is still warm so dress & bring items
appropriate to the season. Mundane pop-ups & camp chairs are
recommended, there are shade trees and almost always a breeze
(Eastfield is well known as the most windy range in the kingdom).
Bards would be most welcome to come and entertain the spectators
while marshals swap targets and set up the next round, also I'm sure
there will be more that one contestant willing to reward for a glowing
To enter the tournament just bring a largess item to donate to our prize
basket (something you might enjoy receiving as a prize yourself). All
donations are collected at sign up and the basket kept at the marshal's
table until a winner of the tournament is determined. I believe it
important to note our last two tournament winners have generously
shared their prize baskets with all the archers competing in the
tournament so everyone had a great time and walked away a prize
winner (Those darn archers, what were they thinking, always trying to
be different huh!).
The tournament will consist of eight skill shoots, persona play (how
well you & your costuming fits your noted time period & location,
(beware, footwear has been the greatest point killer in this category),
and a simple boast (example - "I shall out score all whom enter the
tournament this day!"). Points are accumulative for all skill shoots
and added bonus points are awarded for persona's and boasts by
an impartial trio of judges whom shall determine difficulty of and
completion of either.
Competitors determined by the judges to have the highest score shall
be declared the winner of the tournament and awarded the contents of
our prize basket.
Steppes Archery Practice range is located at Eastfield College on Motley
Drive north of I-30 next to the tennis courts. Parking is available across the
street at the far end of the Baptist church's parking lot. There shall be no
official Steppes archery practice that day so our unofficial tournament will
began sometime around 10 AM (SCA time or as soon as we get set up).
Those of us attending obviously aren't making Gothic, sooo we're looking
at doubling as a Gothic pity party as well. Come join us and have fun!
Please note: Eastfield is a school and all local & state laws do apply...
no swords, knives, daggers, or other edged weapons, and no alcohol

PS: This is a roaming quarterly tournament, if your group's archery
marshal would be interested in bringing our "Archer's Challenge" to
your group's local archery practice range, contact your local Arc d' Or
and we'll be glad to see what we can arrange.
