Tidings came to brave Robin Hood under the Greenwood tree
“Come prepare you then my merry men we'll go yon sport to see.”
Forth from the Greenwood they are gone with hearts all firm and stout
Resolving then with the sheriff’s men to have a hearty bout…
-- “Robin Hood and the Golden Arrow”

Come one and all who have skill with bow and swordsmen who would see justice
done in Nottingham! A grand contest of the bow will be held in Sherwood and
as Robin’s men will undoubtedly contend the sheriff’s men will not be far.
Armed skirmishes are sure to break out!

The Barony of Bjornsborg invites you to enjoy a Day in Sherwood. The
morning’s activities will include novelty target archery shoots as well as a
“live target” combat archery shoot. A luncheon feast will be served followed
by an afternoon of melees for both heavy weapons and rapier fighters in the
woods and in the open field. Heavy weapons melees will include combat
archery. This will be your last chance to get in some melee practice before
Gulf Wars and your last chance to be authorized for GW combat archery. 
As the day wanes a Bardic competition will be held under the spreading
Gallows Oak. Prizes will be awarded to the best target archer the best
combat archer the best bard and the person who best exemplifies the spirit
of Sherwood. A war chest will be filled to be divided among the victors of
the melees.
