Feast of the Saints: Feast of St Sebastian
May 9, 2015
Canton of Falconcree
This year, we honor Saint Sebastian, the saint of archers, athletes, and soldiers! We have chosen to hold this event in May to honor him, as it is also National Military month. If you serve, or have served in the military, you will receive a special favor that you can take home with you.
To celebrate Saint Sebastian, there will be a large archery range open for those who enjoy shooting. Lots of space for bows, crossbows, and Atlatls. As always, there will also be heavy weapons and rapier for all our soldiers. There is also a possibility of combat archery.
There is a private lake on the site that you are welcome go fishing and relax. Perhaps someone can research and present an A&S project or class on period fishing techniques! Also, we will be looking for all sorts of archery related A&S projects to stay with the event theme.
Since Sebastian passed in 288 AD in Roman, Roman garb is encouraged.
Martial Activities: Heavy and rapier working together as teams. When you win you fight you shoot a combat arrow at the opponent of you teammate. Archery and ATALATL with a special archery prize. A bow.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Any archery related projects, Open A&S, and scroll blanks
