[ATL] Southern Atlantia Archery Day

A cold wind blows from the North. On that wind ride the long-ships in full sail. The NORSE! They are set on the pillage & plunder of our homelands.

Hide your women, your goods and your livestock. Break out your bows and steel, and join the Canton of Crois Brigte in the Barony of Sacred Stone, as we try to stop the Norse invasion.

Your skill in archery as well as spear and axe throwing will be challenged. Persons of all skill levels are invited to participate.

Awards in a variety of different categories will be given. There will be a night shoot as well as a special bonus shoot available for those willing to try. Make your way to the scenic Elchenburg Castle in Boonville, North Carolina, at 2239 Center Road, Booneville, NC 27011. Free camping on site with your registration. Wet site. Hot showers and flush toilets. Hotels near-by.

There will be no feast. Roanwoulfe Tavern will again be on site for those wishing to purchase their always fine sustenance. Other food is available in nearby Yadkinville, Jonesville, Elkin, and Booneville.
