Event Information

Royal Archery Tournament (2019-09-14) Bright Hills

Master Janyn Fletcher of Lancastreschire welcomes the archers of Atlantia and beyond to a day of archery. This year's theme will be based on artwork from Amy Brown's fantasy and fairies. Your job will be to rid our Kingdom of the nasty monsters and not the kind helpful fairies. All Atlantians are welcome to shoot for the right to be the next Atlantian Royal Archery Champion. If you decide you don't want this honor that is fine as well, please come out for a day of fun and shooting with us!

There will be at least 10 stations including a 4-5 station woods walk. You will need a full quiver of arrows or bolts as we Atlantians like to shoot so please assure you are properly outfitted for the day. This is our top championship shoot of the year so the targets will be challenging. There will be youth stakes placed so youth can still participate and enjoy shooting with us as well.

At the end of the day, there will be a head to head shoot-off to decide the winner and next Royal Archer of Atlantia. I have decided to carry on the 16 archer field to give more archers a chance to participate and have a chance at the overall championship. Along with the title, there will also be prizes awarded for the top scores in each of our royal round ranks. Each of those winners will receive a beautiful award arrow and also the Kingdom medallion of their ranking to wear during the year. So please to each of the current holders of those ranking medallions, make sure you return them to me prior or at this shoot. If you can not make the shoot, please assure you hand it off to someone that will be present at the shoot so it may be presented to the next recipient. There will also be prizes for a few of our Youth archers to celebrate their achievements on the archery range!

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact Master Janyn Fletcher, (janynfletcher [AT] comcast.net) for shoot related questions or the autocrat for event-related items.

Hope to see you all there!
