The Hunt for the Prize
- Greetings to all archers and those who love them!
Peregrine Fairchylde here, your marshal-in-charge for
The Hunt for the Prize, the first Gleann Abhann Live
Weapons Championships. This event will be held July
14-16 at the Woodmen of the World in the Shire of
Dragoun's Weal (Hattiesburg, Miss.). In order to
entice more of you to come join us in shooting and
throwing, here are some details of the day's
There will be a dozen archery shoots and six throws.
Each participant can take part in as many or as few as
they want. The top scorers in each of three catetories
(novice, intermediate, expert) will be awarded prizes.
The archery shoots will include: orange trees, friend
or foe, heraldry, wands, William Tell, serpents, rats
and cheese, kingdom arms, balloons, sheep and wolves,
UFOs and a period face. Weapon throws will include
balloons, a period face, braids, friend or foe, a
safari and a sihouette.
The event will also feature the Queen's Thrown Weapons
Champion and Queen's Yeoman competitions. The nature
of these will be kept a closely guarded secret until
the weekend of the event!
We'll start shooting and throwing at 9 a.m. Saturday
and will shoot all day, so please make plans to join
us! Yes, it's July in southern Mississippi; yes, it'll
be hot. But yes, we'll have shade pavilions and plenty
of water and, most importantly, lots of FUN so just
grab your sunscreen and head on down, y'all.
