      Greetings to all my fellow archers.

      I must apologize in advance for the short notice, but I have just
      day been authorized to spread the word. The Barony of Storvik
      (Washington D.C./P.G. County/et. al) is staging a Novice Day event,
      which will also include a War Practice. For those archers
      we will be practicing many of the War Points Shoots for this year's
      Pennsic (Advancing man, slot.) There will also be a Castle Shoot as
      well as a chance to work on your Atlantian Ranking by improving your
      RR score. There will be other shoots as well, including possibly a
      water shoot. The range is being run by Lord Robert Runewald of
      Lochmere, so there should be plenty to keep the archers busy. The
      original event posting on the Acorn did not list archery, so it may
      not have captured the attention of the archers in the area. I have
      included below the revised event listing, along with the directions
      the site. We should have beautiful weather this weekend, so wax up
      those strings and come prepare for War! I look forward to seeing all
      of you that can make it.

      In service,
