Come one and all to celebrate another summer of shooting and riding! After six celebrations of the German Schutzenfest, we're taking a trip to Mongolia. Called "the second-oldest Olympics," this summer festival has celebrated archery, horse-racing, and wrestling for centuries, reportedly since the time of Genghis Khan!
Shoot 'til you drop, ride 'til you fall, compete for the title of Schuetzenkoenig, and feast and revel into the night. The event opens with a torchlight shoot on Friday evening. Saturday starts with some challenging twists on the standard Schuetzenkoenig competition, the Nordskogen Archery Championship tourney, and an afternoon of novelty shoots and a youth-only shoot. Equestrian activities include a challenge course and horse archery.

First boil five to six cups of water, then turn down the fire. Put 4 bags of tea or 4 heaping tablespoon of loose tea in the water and boil again for a couple of minutes. Take out the tea bags or if you use loose tea, strain the tea leaves. Pour your tea, one quarter of a teaspoon of salt, two tablespoons of butter, and a half cup of milk into a chandong, which is a kind of churn.
Note: Since Chandong are kind of rare outside of Tibet unless you make one, you can cheat, which is to use any big container with a lid, so you can shake the tea, Churn, or shake the mixture for two or three minutes. Po cha tastes better if you churn it longer. Serve the tea right away, since po cha is best when it's very hot.
