The thundering hooves of the Mongolian Empire draw near! Join in their whirlwind of chaos to conquer the Knowne World. We invite you to display your prowess with bow and arrow, and plunder the day away. This will be a kingdom-level event to choose the new Kingdom of Atlantia Archery Champion.
It is a weekend-long event with archery, feasting, and a bardic circle. The Championship will take place at the Baltimore Bowmen club. Enjoy Friday Night travellers’ fare to benefit the Bright Hills Youth Archery program. Saturday will include a continental breakfast, and there will be a dayboard provided to refuel between shoots. The day’s end will bring a sumptuous feast prepared by Duke Valharic, followed by a bardic circle to entertain and recount the day’s events: “No s*@#, there I was, just me and my yak . . .”
Martial Activities: Archery, archery, and more archery. Of course any yak could tell you this is a target archery and not combat archery event. There will be a surprise night shoot on Friday that is not part of the championship. Special prize for Best Mongol Presence during the event on Friday night and Saturday. Lady Cassie Charlesworth is sponsoring a prize for best yak-related bardic presentation during the bardic circle Saturday evening. Dancers and drummers welcome. All equipment must meet SCA safety standards. All archers must pass inspection by a designated SCA marshal.
