As in the tradition of earlier celebration days, we will have a variety of period shooting competitions. The garland shoot was particularly successful last year alongside the Infamous Castle of Rasberry Blowing French Soldiers, which it seems both big & little kids love shooting at!
There will obviously be a focus on all things archery with a display of period arrows on show but there are other competitions!
~ This year's A&S competition is for any item at all of either English or French provenance from around the year 1415. We won't hold you down to "October" 1415 although it would be a nice touch!
~ As in past years, there will be a winner for the best Potluck Picnic dish. Last year's entry is a tough one to beat...two delicious lamb pies bearing the English & French heraldry including correct colours.
~ Kid's Boffer Tourney - as Matthew ibn Jelal, the champion of the two previous years, has now passed the age of entry (16) now's your chance!!
~ Best Addition to the Atmosphere of the Day - this can be anything from biscuits with Stowe's device on them to generosity with your mead! Get Creative!
~ Garland Tourney - speaks for itself - he or she who can outshoot Alfgeirr, Fitz or Ysabella deserves the acclamation!
