(Sunday 1:30-4PM (Finals 3:30)
Archos William Cristofer welcomes archers to compete to succeed him as Archery Champion of Adiantum! To win the title one must be a current SCA member(18+). The Champion designs the tournament. This year he has included a requirement of TWO Royal Rounds which must be scored BEFORE participation in the Championship, either previous to the event or when Royal Round shooting is available(Friday afternoon or Sunday morning). Royal Rounds are shot at Adiantum Practices on a bi-weekly basis. This requirement is intended to even the field.

- Sounds like fun. What source are you basing the Flemish Flowers circa 1535 upon? I have been trying to find more information on that competition.ThanksJon
- Your AWESOME book, of course! I made the boxes bigger and changed the difficulty to accommodate a 'newer to archery' population.
If they hit three of the 'same flower' they Get a silk flower to wear in their lapel or give to their 'inspiration'!(unless they are a high ranking archer, then I make them hit more. :)
- Ah ... I was hoping you had found further information. I am going to be working that up for a SSAC. If you could post a photo of it to the group, I would be most grateful.Thank you.Jon
