      A Shoote in the Wildwoods
      August 29th-September 1st

      Greetings unto the archers of Aethelmearc and the rest of the Known
      World. The Barony of Delftwood is elated to invite all to attend our
      Shoote in the Wildwoods Archery extravaganza. The gates will open at
      5:00PM on Friday, August 29, 2008, and will close at 12:00 noon on
      Monday, September 1, 2008 at Wild Wood Sports Center, 5740 Fikes Rd.,
      Elbridge, NY 13060.

      There will be shoots on every day of the event. This event consists of
      Archery competitions, Thrown Weapons, the possibility of combat
      archery, and even a class on how to make a Roman Rising block
      crossbow. There will also be exciting and challenging novelty shoots.
      The nights will contain bonfires, night shoots and even the
      possibility of bardic entertainment.

      The weekend tournaments will consist of the Seven Pearls Archery
      shoot, Barony of Delftwood Archery Champion, Barony of Delftwood
      Thrown Weapons Champion. But, just because they are the championships
      don't think that they won't be challenging and fun. With all of the
      Archery going on we can't forget the legendary monster attack which we
      need the children of Aethelmearc to defend us from.

      Lord Edward the Grey (Greyledge Archery/Diana's Shaft Shop) formerly
      of the East Kingdom will be joining us for a Roman block cross bow
      making class. By the end of the class you can walk away with a
      crossbow, for target or combat, of your choice and the knowledge of
      how to make them. If interested please contact the autocrats before
      August 15th, about supplies, reservations, and FEES for the class.
      There is a deposit needed as well. There will be other classes to be
      determined later and a full list will be placed on the Aethelmarc list
      before the event. If you are interested in teaching a class please let
      the autocrats know and it can be scheduled.

      We welcome merchants, please contact the autocrats as merchants space
      is limited. Wood for the campfires can be bought on site as they have
      a surplus of firewood. On Saturday August 30th, there will be a
      chicken bar-b-que, with corn, salt potatoes, and baked beans for $8.50
      per person. For Sunday, August 31st there will be a lasagna dinner
      with a salad and Italian bread for $6.00. Breakfast for Saturday and
      Sunday will be pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausage for $4.00 a
      plate. Lunch will consist of Hamburgers/cheese, hotdogs and venison
      stew, the prices for those will be determined by the site. (There will
      only be pre-paid reservations for the dinners and need to be received
      by August 20.) All food is provided by the site. The site fee is $10
      for adults and $5 for children under 12 (includes camping) + $3
      non-member surcharge, there is no difference in fees for day trip or
      camping. Make checks payable to: SCA, Inc., Barony of Delftwood, and
      send all pre-registrations to SCA, Barony of Delftwood, PO Box 6694,
      Syracuse, NY, 13217

      Please note that the owners ask that no animals be brought on site as
      there are already dogs there. (Very kid friendly)
