Needwood Games The Great Hunt and the Annual Competition for The Lochmere Arrow Shire of Roxbury Mill Westminster, MD
The Needwood Forest Company of Archers, in partnership with the Crescent Guard, the Shire of Roxbury Mill, and the Barony of Bright Hills, sound the Hunting Horn! It is fall, the deer are rutting and the boars are scouring the forest floor in search of acorns. Join us as we roam meadow, woodland and orchard to hunt game and fowl for our winter larders and winter furs.
Activities: Target archery. This is an all target archery event, with team and individual competitions. Archers will participate as part of teams representing their local group, archery company or household. Archers who are not part of an organized group will be treated as free agents and drafted into teams so all may participate. The Needwood Games from 10:00 am until 2:30 will include two roving shoots and a team event. An assortment of prizes will be awarded, both to teams and individuals at every level of skill. Competition for the Lochmere Arrow, shot by pairs of archers representing local SCA groups will begin at 2:30.
Arts & Sciences Activities: The Autocrat is sponsoring a period archery A&S competition, in the following categories:
Best period kit (attire, equipment, and persona).
Best period bow.
Best period arrows.
Best period archery-related gear (bracers, string keepers, quivers, etc).

The A&S competition will be judged by the populace. Since we are all learning here, documentation is essential!
