[AET] Archers to the Wald

You stand waiting, focused downrange, fingers lightly touching the string of your bow. The range is declared clear and permission is given shoot. You take aim and watch as the arrow streaks toward its intended target, striking home.

The Canton of Steltonwald promises to be a place that the Archers of our Kingdom dream about as we again invite one and all to come and fling your arrows and bolts at this year's Archers to the Wald. It promises to be an exciting day filled with several roving, novelty and long distance ranges as well as the traditional practice ranges to get in that next Royal Round. We have taken steps to ensure that you have more than enough to shoot at. As well as shooting, Members of the Scarlet Guard have agreed to make themselves available for one-on-one coaching, as well as tips and techniques sessions throughout the day. So come out and enjoy a day filled with fun!

In addition to all things archery, there is plenty of space for other activities to be held. We welcome merchants, but please contact the Autocrat as inside/table space is limited.

The day will end with a fabulous feast created by none other than Countess Aidan ni Leir. Feast is limited to 48. Please pre-register for this event as the final numbers for feast will be based on our pre-registration numbers. If you have any special dietary concerns, please contact helen.pinto (AT) comcast.net
