Barony of Lochmere
Their Excellencies of Lochmere, Baroness Avice Claremond and Baron Gabrell Fairecloughe, invite archers to join Their Barony at a scenic waterfront site in Annapolis, Maryland for a day of archery, Atlatl, thrown weapons, good food and better companionship.
Shooting will commence around 10 am on Saturday, May 14, 2016. (SCA time)
As always, the main event will be the challenging walk through shoot. It can be somewhat difficult to get to some of the targets' locations so be prepared to climb up and down wooded slopes. But the challenges only make hitting the target that much sweeter!
There will be a small target archery range set up for practice and if the Marshal-in-Charge permits, and if marshals are available, thrown weapons.
The Barony has lots of loaner gear for archers available as well.
If you do not shoot, the Barony encourages you to come for the food, the socializing with old and new friends and the time to work on small A&S projects. If you are a newcomer to the SCA, this is a nice, low key, no pressure event to learn about archery and some of the many A&S activities practiced in the Society.
There are only a few chairs at the site so attendees bring their own.
