The Shire of Hunter’s Home is reestablishing The Scarlett Guard Inn Archery Festival. This will be the first time our Shire and the Scarlet Guard have teamed up to bring you the premier archery event of the year. Nowhere else in this great Kingdom of AEthelmearc will you find more archery in one location, and we daresay not even at Pennsic. As well as archery there is food, camping, music, games, campfires, and of course good friends.
Come and enjoy more archery than you can shake a stick at. On average we have about a dozen different ranges to help keep you occupied and happy. On Friday evening we have a flight shoot and night shoot. During the day Saturday we have many novelty ranges and a few roving ranges so make sure to wear your walking shoes and bring plenty of arrows.
In addition to all the spectacular and creative ranges and shoots, the Scarlet Guard has issued a challenge to all Shires, Baronies, and Cantons to send their best archer to compete. To enter an individual must have a signed letter of entry issued by their group’s seneschal declaring you as their representative in the competition. They also ask the competitor to add a small item or token to the prize basket for the winner. In addition to the prize, the victor will walk away with the annual competition banner to display throughout the year. Each year the winner’s and group’s name will be added to the banner to create a legacy of great archery and ultimate bragging rights (members of the Scarlet Guard are not allowed to enter). If you have any questions regarding the challenge please e-mail the archery coordinator Juan Miguel Cezar at email@example.com .
Your equipment will need to be inspected before you can shoot. If you are day tripping make sure to be there early enough to get it out of the way so you and our inspectors can enjoy a full day’s activities. Inspections are at the small building near the pavilion.
Don’t forget sunscreen and tick/bug spray, this is an outdoor event and some ranges take you through deep woods.
Since there will already be plenty of arrows flying through the air we might as well set up some thrown weapons butts too. Bring your axes and knives, maybe a spear or two and give them a throw.
Hunters Home invites merchants to set up their wares at no additional charge. We had many great items for sale at our last event.
Please contact Maggie Rue firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in teaching something.
Camping is free! Please feel free to stay Friday and Saturday night. There is plenty of camping space and some already have regular spots but it is first come first serve. There is space for RVs but it is limited and there are no hookups and no dumping allowed, please contact the autocrat ahead of time. Enjoy your own campfire or be sociable and join us at the common fire. We will have the main fire provided for socializing, feel free to join in front of the pavilion or have your own fire. But please leave the site as you found it.
The Food: There will be no feast at this event, however there will be a modest sideboard open through the day on Saturday in the tavern.
Want to compete off the field as well? Two gaming tables will be set aside in the tavern with an assortment of games to choose from. We welcome any additions.
We are also inviting the bards of the kingdom to come share their talents. Please add to the atmosphere and join us in the tavern and around the common fire day and night!
The site is discreetly wet. Pets Welcome On Leash and Well Behaved, clean up after your animal.
