We have secured a much larger section of the park this year, with double the parking area, double the camping area, and the large ravine which runs the length of the park to fight in as well as the large well groomed field used last year. [This site usually doesn't allow doqs -ed] We are happy to make arrangements for fighters wishing to also partake in the Archery Competition, just notify Norwache's Captain of Archers, Sigurd Storm rider to set a convenient time to shoot.
