The list will be standard double elimination (possible single elimination) pending on the numbers. Archers will be set in two 3ft circles 25 feet apart. Arrows must be in the quiver. Bows/crossbows can be held as archer is comfortable. Crossbowman will be able to have the string notched when they enter the circle. At lay on, archers will load and shoot. There will be no hold called to allow crossbows to reload so don't even ask. SCA standard killing shots only. Step out of the circle..you die. What happens if you miss? I'd recommend reloading faster then the other guy.

There are prizes lots of prizes ranging from a crossbow made by Ld. Bartholemew Hightower (KCAM Artemesia) to your choice of 2 back up weapons with belt mounts made by the Atenveldt Earl Marshal, Sir Jason of Antioch. 1st place gets 1st choice, 2nd gets 2nd choice and so on.

The Quick and the Dead Tourney will be at the same time as the Outlands prize tourney to allow for combatants to participate in both should they wish.
