My apologies if you receive this more than once, but I am trying to
scatter it as wide as possible.
The Winter Challenge season is now entirely finished, with the past two
weeks being spent in collecting late scores. My sincerest thanks and
congratulations to all in making this the most successful season we have
seen yet, with a total of 345 participants from 9 kingdoms. Top score
this year was 243 (Robert Thorne of the Midrealm), from a crossbow. The
top Recurve score was 210 (Andras Truemark of An Tir), and the highest
longbow score was a stunning 200 from Seán the Archer of Drachenwald.
Hoo-bah (that's Midrealmese for Vivat) to these gentles in particular,
and a hoo-bah to you all.
The full tally of scores can be seen at...
So now, on to the Summer Challenge... The Wha...? Yep, showing in the
clearest way thus far that I have way too much time on my hands, I am
opening up a Summer Challenge - similar in many respects but not
identical to the Winter Challenge. I have been thinking about this for
some time, and have come up with an experimental range that I hope will
be fun and interesting for all. I will be frank; I think the rounds are
in some ways a tougher and more demanding course than the Winter
Challenge. That's why this first year is something of an experiment - I
am soliciting not only scores, but also commentary on how it went for
you, and what you think ought to be modified for next time.
So, if you would, please look over the rules and, if you can, give a try
or two. The rules are located at:
Hope to hear from you all soon, and good hunting to everyone:
