In service to our beloved Baroness, Mary, the Caerthen Archery Warden competition will be held during St Sebastians this year. And in consideration of the time, and gas needed for a camping event St Sebastians will be one day only this year. Join the Canton of Hawks Hollow for more of his lordship Eric's entertaining shoots as well as the determination of the archery champions for Caerthe (hand bow and crossbow).
