Greetings to one and all! We archers usually come in third for consideration of time and space. Not this time! This one is for us, the so-called "wimps" who have, throughout history, often been the deciding factor in a battle, not to mention putting food on the table.
Come hone your skills at the many scenarios we have planned. Prove your ranking during an IKAC. Strengthen your endurance with a round of golf. Sharpen your eye with a dragon hunt. Show your worth with a castle shoot. Practice shooting vermin with a game of barchery. Take your chances with a game of cards. Test your precision with a
