The Twenty-third Year

5th Annual Archery Competition -- Cloondara

June 5, 1988 (AS XXIII)

From The Page (May, 1988):

All are most welcome to Cloondara's 5th Annual Archery Competition, starting at 11 am on Sunday, June 5, at the archery field in Golden Gate Park. This event traditionally draws archers from all over the Kingdom and will include both combat-style and standard target competition. Although there will be no actual combat archery, war archers are encouraged to wear their armor during contests using combat-legal arrows and bows. The IKCAC and IKAC will be shot as well as the fantasy target games using last year's wonderful "monster" targets made by Robert of Coldcastle.
     Non-archers are of course, welcome to join us, as many other activities are planned, including a contest for garb under $15 (bring receipts), and medieval dancing to (possibly live) period music. Children are encouraged to come and compete with their own bows.
     The field banquet will begin around 3 pm, with your choice of either bringing your own food, or buying a period style cold picnic from our "foodcrar" Maudeline. The picnic is sold by advance reservation ONLY, which closes on May 28. Enclose a SASE for tickets to be returned to you, and any reservations received after May 21 will be held for you at the event. Mail checks to (contact info omitted). Checks should be payable to "SCA, Cloondara." Everyone is encouraged to bring period field furniture as well as feast gear, as there are no tables at the archery field. No fires are allowed, and pets and smalls must be restrained. Competition will end at around 6 pm, with prizes awarded to winners based on overall points. Please bring extra food, drink and musical instruments for the usual wild revel at Elayna's afterward. Autocrat: Asclin Thorne, (contact info omitted).
