Are you good with a stick? Do you love to watch your shafts hit the bullseye? Do you quiver at the chance to shoot your bow? If so, Come to Vinhold this Saturday, June 25, and show off your talents!
The illustrious barony of Vinhold is looking for a new archery champion! Do you have what it takes? Is your aim true? Can you keep the evil faeries from stealing the baroness's horses? Can you keep the barony supplied with game for next winter?
As the current Vinhold Champion, I am hosting a tournament this Saturday for my replacement. The event will take place at Skyline Park in Napa, the same site as the war maneuvers between the Baronies of Vinhold and Westermark that day.
The archery range will open at 10 AM for practice and sign-ups for the Championship. You need not be a resident of Vinhold to serve as Champion. Archers will have an opportunity to shoot Royal Rounds/IKAC starting at 11 AM.
Sign-ups for the Championship tourney will close at 2:30 PM, and the tournament will start promptly at 3 PM. The plan is to complete the tournament by about 4:30, so that the new Champion can be invested at the final Court of the day.
Target arrows will be used in all of the Championship competitions. Shoots will include 3-D animal targets, wreaths, a wand shoot, and a kill-the-evil-faeries-without-hitting-the-horse target. The winner
will be expected to run the Championship tournament next year, and to serve as the Baroness' champion in archery as needed.
Come test your hand and compete to be the Barony's Champion!
