Re: Proposal for a fourth Peerage(long)
- Greetings Lord Macsen
I salute and applaud you, for I agree with you. Here in the Kingdom of
Atenveldt I know of Peers that enjoy archery if not fulltime,but parttime.
Lets see now In the Baronies of Atenveldt and SunDragon there are at least 4
Laurels and 4 Pelicans that I can think of off the top of my head. And There
are some Knights who come out and shoot with us on occication.
I feel if we the Archers of the KnownWorld approch the Peers and offer our
services to them. So that they can learn the joy of feeling the bow come
alive in the palm of their hand.
To know the joy of knowing that they made the bow string and/or arrows they
are shooting. Then the peers will start to understand. We all know the
feeling when we step on the field and shoot, How do you describe it to a
person who has never done it.
Does any one remember the first time they hit the gold? Or the feeling of
accomplishment the first time they hit the target? I do, I see it at least
once a month when I have a new archer come out and play. These are the
things in my opionion that we should share with everyone.
This spring I was given a great honor I was a capanion of the Azure
Archer. This is the highest award for Archery in the Kingdom of Atenveldt.
I got this award because I approched Knights, Laurels, and Pelicans and
offered my services so they could learn the sport of Archery.
IN short we the Archers need to talk with the peers and invite them to come
and checkout what we are doing.
the mind is racing faster than the fingers
Go in Peace
Lord Ian Griffen the Archer
Captian of Archers Barony of Atenveldt.
