Event details
England is in peril.  King Richard the Lionheart is away at the Crusades and Prince John usurps the throne in his absence.  Taxes are too high, those who cannot pay are jailed, and poverty is on the rise.  The people need a hero, and that hero needs help from you!  Join us in Sherwood Forest, as Robin Hood and his band of merry men rob the rich to help the poor.  Together, we will fight back against "the phony king of England!"

This will be a day of archery fun and games that explores many of the different tellings of the Robin Hood story.  Take aim and try to discover "the greatest treasure in all the land" - or will you have to call a locksmith instead? Help Robin to sneak bags of gold away from a thumb-sucking sleeping prince!  Stop the sherrif of Nottingham from taking money from the villagers!  Will you have the courage to enter the grand archery tournament? The winner might get gold coins pilfered out of the royal treasury, or a golden arrow, or perhaps even a Patriot Arrow!

Also on this day, the Baron and Baroness Concordia shall choose Their next champion of archery, in a tournament designed and run by the outgoing champion Baroness Elizabeth Hawkwood.  Who among us shall prove that their skills reign supreme In Defense of Concordia?

There will also be a thrown weapons range and a heavy weapons list set up for those who desire to hone their skills in other ways.

Shooting begins promptly at 10am.  All archers wishing to partcipate in the day's activities MUST be inspected and ready to start at that time.
A selection of loaner equipment will be available on request.
