|St. Sebastian's Fair **UPDATED** ||Event date: May 10th, 2008|
|Hosted by Shire of Hartshorn-dale - Schwenksville, PA||Event Last Modified: February 25th, 2008|
|Robin in the greenwood is
and he wants us to join him. On May 10 we will return to the grounds of the Limerick Bowmen for a fair celebrating the flight of the arrow. (This year, no snow!)|
Archery activities will include a roving range (including, we hope, a running deer), royal rounds, practice areas and novelty shoots.
We will also have thrown weapons and fencing.
There are both a hall and an outdoor shelter for those not shooting to gather to visit, game, or ply their crafts. Artisans are encouraged to bring projects to work on and share. (Bring tables and chairs). Merchants are most welcome (no charge above gate fees), with merchants of goods related to Archery, Thrown Weapons and the Fence given preference if space becomes an issue.
Please be aware of several things: The site is semi-rustic. There are indoor bathrooms as well as latrines, but limited handicap accessibility. (Contact the Autocrat with any questions.) Parking is slightly cramped and we do encourage carpooling. The Roving Range has been called brutal by area hunters bring your older arrows, not your A&S projects, and sturdy shoes are encouraged.
Site fee includes dayboard by Lord Bran ap Rees. There is no feast, but several restaurants are nearby and a list will be available at the door.
Gate opens at 10:00 a.m. and the site closes at 6:00 anyone left at the end of the day has volunteered to help clean up (with our thanks!). There will be opportunities to volunteer both for marshals and others, contact the autocrat.
Site Opens: 10:00 a.m.
Site Closes: 6:00 p.m.
