Archers of Caid, come shoot in honor of our new Queen, Kara the Twin of Kelton.
Queen's Champion Archery will be sponsored this year by the Barony of Altavia, and held at their local archery venue, Woodley Park (6331 Woodley Avenue, Van Nuys, CA, 91406).
There will be open and crossbow divisions (we have the OK to use crossbows, so the only contingent is a minimum of three competitors).
Targets and ranges will be varied, in keeping with Her Majesty's wishes.
Children (youth archers included) are welcome at the site, but must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
Spectators are welcome to come sit in the ample shade under the trees and watch as the archers compete for the honor of being Her Majesty's archery champion.
The site does allow merchants; interested merchants please contact the autocrat directly for details.
Please note: Pets are allowed in the park area, but not within the confines of the archery range. THIS IS A DRY SITE.
