early event announcement
- Sorry for the bandwidth but I thought this might be of some interest,
especially to the archers of An Tir and Artemisia. I wanted to post it
early so that people would have ample time to plan should they wish to
attend. Please forward to any list you feel would be interested.
The Barony of Montengarde invites you to Hidden Treasures, July 22-24, 2005.
Shoot the largest archery tournament in An Tir, a 30 target roving
range, run by Dalton. The tournament will include shooting from tree
stands, through castle windows at the line and in front of the target
butt, arrow slots, and battlements, at a variety of targets including
warriors and 3D animals. Due to the nature of the tournament loaner
equipment will not be available for use.
Royal Rounds will be run on the field range throughout the weekend for
those wishing to record scores.
Ellias Silver will be running a thrown weapons tournament and there will
be a teaching butt and loaner gear available for anyone wishing to
learn. Due to the mundane rules of the club crossbows are not permitted.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
The heavy tourney, run by Mainsbridge, will be a team resurrection woods
battle/treasure hunt. Teams will have to fight their way into the woods,
find a treasure chest that has been placed at a random point and fight
their way back out. The team that steps onto the bridge with the chest
wins the chest and its contents. Teams may be organized in advance.
There will also be sign in sheets at the Inne for teams needing members
and individuals looking for a team.
Rapier will include duels on a real bridge.
There will also be an A&S competition, bardic, dancing, and a fire pit.
"The Bowman's Rest Inne" will be open almost around the clock.
A steak dinner is planned for Saturday. Reservations for the dinner must
be made prior to July 10. The only good reservation is a paid one.
Site does not have drinkable water. Some will be available in the Inne
but we recommend you bring some. Stores and restaurants are nearby.
Due to some restrictions in camping please notify us if you have an
oversize tent or encampment so that we may better accommodate you.
