Sorry, no compound bows please. There will be seven Divisions: Open Handbow, Open Crossbow, Period Handbow, Period Crossbow, Children’s (10 and under), Youth (13 and under) and Yeoman (15 and under). In addition, there are skill levels of Novice, Archer, Yeoman & Master based on past scores, and prizes will be awarded to the three highest scores in each bracket.

A target will be set up for "Inter-Kingdom Combat Archery Competition" (IKCAC) shooting as well, so bring your combat archery gear. A novelty shoot is also anticipated.Also we invite the legendary chefs and bakers of the West Kingdom to come and compete in A Taste of Hawks Haven: The Grand Cullinary Competition.
