Archery
The Range is our dedicated space for Archery, and right in the middle of all the fun.  This means you don't have to walk to the other side of the world to participate!  Stroll through The Village and enjoy the sites & sounds, turn east near the Equestrian Arena, walk past the trees, and you'll be headed right towards The Range.  Once inside, you will note that down range there is an elevated berm, followed by open space, the 15 foot fence, more open space, then woods and a creek before we get to the nearest populated area.  This arrangement allows us to be near the activities, and still remain safe.  

If your Kingdom or group would like to sponsor a shoot, by all means contact the Archery Marshal and get on the schedule!  The schedule will allow for, and have Open Range time as well.  Check back for updates.

This is YOUR event, and a great opportunity to show off what makes your Kingdom great!!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do we have The Range all to ourselves?
Yes and No.  There is a specific arena that we share  with Thrown Weapons and possibly, Siege activities. Each area has it's own designated location, with no overlap or "sharing" where any cross fire may occur.  However, this does allow for all of these activities to be near one another. The location is also close to the Promenade and camping.

2. What is The Range like?  
We have full stadium seating and an easy walk to the main village area.  It is fenced in on all sides, which will allow for better safety.   (The site is a "Tractor Pull" area for the Fairgrounds, level terrain, and a 15 foot fence with slats enclosing it.)

3. Will there be equipment to borrow?
We are looking in to this.  It is best that you bring your own equipment (as with any sport, having gear you are familiar with is always best), or borrow from someone you know and is okay with this.

All times and schedules are tentative. People from all Kingdoms are invited to sponsor tournaments. As at Pennsic, any Archery Marshal or equivalent may keep the Range open later for a special shoot or tournament, such as Lord Narran's "Period only" shoot.
