The Nineteenth Year

Archery Contest and Field Banquet -- Cairn Dhuin
July 15, 1984 (AS XIX)

From The Page (July, 1984):

Take heed, archers! The Shire of Cairn Dhuin is hosting an Archery Contest and Field Banquet at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park Archery Range from 2pm to sunset on Sunday, July 15. The Archery Range is one block from the ocean off 47th Ave. and Fulton, on the North side of the Park, (further directions omitted).

The special feature of this event is an experimental combat-weapon Target Contest. Bring your war bow and quiver, as standard West-Caid Combat Archery rules will apply to all bows, arrrows, and hand protection in this contest; and competitors are encouraged to wear full combat armor. D&D-style fantasy target games will include Wolfpack Attack, Monster Hunt, and Speed Shooting. In accordance with our Kingdom's new archery rules, we will have officials on hand to authorize archers for any future mixed heavy-fighter/archer combat events, so study your rules beforehand.

InterKingdom Archery Competition (IKAC) rounds will be shot, so see the May issue of the PAGE for specific rules. A carpet-armor workshop is also planned, of special note to those interested in participating in the Sunset-CairnDhuin archery-shinai battle on August 18. Please bring carpet, linen thread, and your imagination.

The Field Banquet will take place around 5pm, with a contest for archery-theme dishes by you creative cooks. Bring period field furniture, plate settings, and costumes, as this event will be public, and remember that the field can get windy. No fires, merchants, or fees, and dogs and mini-archers must be restrained. Good shooting!

AUTOCRAT: Aesclinn the Thorne (contact info omitted).
