Middle Atlantian Archery Day
March 08- 10, 2013
Barony of Marinus

The enemy is at the Tower gates and the King calls all archers to arms.  Defend the Castle then track the enemy thru the woods, down the long path to their own Castle and make our attack!   Along the way, you’ll fight with bow, knives, axes and Atlatl.   Gather your archers from each Barony and Canton and join the fight, from North and South of our great Kingdom!  Calling all archers across the Kingdom to join in!    This will truly be a test of all your skills!   Shoot from an actual 40’ tower, practice on period target pells, and shoot at flying birds and much more!  After the hard day of shooting, join us for a Feast in the hall and brag of your skills and achievements.  Awards for best scores for each set of targets and an overall best will be given.  A&S competition based upon our favorite sport, Archery!

Other Information: Can your barony bring a full team? What is a team? A team is 5 archers all shooting targets together. Oh and someone who is handy with throwing sharp objects is a good addiction. Having someone who knows how to fling an AtlAtl will be even better. And if one of these 5 is a Marshal, you don't have to drag one around with you. Extra points on a full team, regalia, and a cheer (yes I said a cheer). Have fun with it!
