The Fiftieth Year

Archery Championship -- Principality of Cynagua

November 14-15, 2015 (AS L)

Yolo County Grasslands Regional Park,
Davis, CA

From The Page (November, 2015):

Join us at the shire of Windy Meads for a grand archery tournament to determine the next Cyna­guan Archery Champion!

At this point there are four shooting events planned:

Pop-up Targets: They present from behind a blind at random intervals. The targets are small animals, at 15 to 25 yards. This event is timed.

A Hunt in the Woods: These are 3D animals of various sizes, on a field archery course. The ranges will be unmarked, usually between 15 and 40 yards.

Archer’s Heart Duel: This is an elimination list. Archers compete in pairs. The first to hit the heart wins. This begins at 20 yards and the distance may increase each round.

Shooting to the Mark: The target pylon is placed between 100 and 150 yards. Shots that land near the pylon are scored with a measuring rope. You may want to make sure your bow can reach this distance.

Children are welcome to shoot, and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when on the archery range.

To shoot for the championship you must live within the border of Cynagua and be a subscribing member of SCA Inc. You must have reached your 18th birthday. Contenders for the championship must bring their own bow and arrows.

All archers are welcome to shoot at the event, and all others are welcome to come and cheer for their favorites. Some loaner equipment will be available. A separate list will be held at the hearts duel for non-contenders.

A hot lunch will be provided for all attending. A vegetarian option will be available.

There are flush privies and potable water on site. If it rains, the championship events must still be shot, there is a plan in place to provide some shelter and fires at points around the park. Check the forecast and dress appropriately, layers are recommended.
