Shoote in the Wildwoods

The Barony of Delftwood is happy to invite one and all to attend our Shoote in the Wildwoods and Archery extravaganza. The gates will open at 5:00PM on Friday August 31, 2007, and the site closes at 12:00 noon on Monday September 3, 2007.

At this event we will choose our new Baronial archery champion, as well as hold a tournament to decide the Seven Pearls archery champion. There will be Royal Rounds, Advancing man, Clout and Novelty shoots to test archers of all skill ranges. The children are asked to defend our lands from the attacking monsters which inhabit our woods. All tournaments will take place on Saturday, September 1st. The site is wet, however we encourage domestic beers to be bought from the bar. We welcome merchants, please contact the autocrats as merchants are outside and space is limited, if you just show up, there might not be any space available. Wood for campfire / bonfires can be bought on site. On Saturday, September 1st, there will be a chicken bar-b-que, corn, salt potatoes, and baked beans for $8.50 per person (There will only be pre-paid reservations and need to be received by August 24.)

Lord Edward the Grey (Greyledge Archery/Diana’s Shaft Shop) of the East Kingdom will be joining us for a 3 day, August 31st – September 2nd, long bow making class. On the third day you can walk away with a bow of the poundage of your choice and the knowledge of how to make them. If you are interested in the class please contact the autocrats before the August 17th, about supplies and FEES. There will be other classes to be determined later.

It is rumored that Baron Ryan’s Beer and Ale Brewing Round Table and Challenge may occur at Wildwood, so come. So if you would like to brew and have a sampling before you leave then this is something that you might want to partake in. Let’s see if the rumors are true. There might be other classes available.

Co-Autocrats for this event are Lord Edward Harbinger (Bill Moore) and Lady Anastasie de Lamoure (Samantha Moore).

Site fee is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 (includes camping) + $3 non-member surcharge. These site fees are the same if you are camping or just joining us for the day. The event is being held at Wild Wood Sports Center, 5740 Fikes Rd., Elbridge, NY 13060. The owners ask that no pets be brought on site, and if service animals are needed please keep them leashed.
