In the name of Baron Jehan, all gentles are invited to attend the
Archery and Thrown Weapons Competitions for the Barony of Carolingia
on Saturday, July 9th, 2005. This will be a fun and exciting day,
with many challenges for novice and experienced competitors alike. In
particular, I have been told that the archery portion of the day will
be an opportunity to test your skills to their limits!
The event will be on the Town Fields of Bedford, MA, located on Mudge
Way (no street number).
There is no fee to attend, but we would appreciate donations at the
gate to offset the cost of the field and the portapotties. If you
intend to compete for any of the honors this day, please read the
and register your intentions at the gate.
Tourney sign-up will begin at 9:00am at the Gate. Inspection and
warm-ups will begin at 10am, and the tourneys will begin promptly at
10:30am. The archery tourney and the thrown weapons tourney will be
held concurrently until the fields have been narrowed to two or four
contestants. Weapons throwers may compete using loaner equipment
provided at the event. The finals for each event will be held
individually so that all may enjoy them. A brief Baronial Court will
be held after the finals of the events to invest the champions.
There is no age limit for participation. All are welcome to compete in
the tourneys provided they have attended at least one SCA practice for
the tourney art in question prior to the championship. While we
welcome less experienced people and want very much to have as many
people as possible join in the fun, we are unfortunately unable to
provide instruction or a newcomer's range at this event prior to the
Championships. Archery loaner equipment may or may not be available -
please contact the autocrat if you want to make sure there is some.
