Event details

This is Master Rupert's final year designing the archery shoot for GGG, so he's pulling out all the stops, with TWO days of shoots, and the ever popular night shoot to take advantage of the holiday weekend!  (weather permitting)

In addition to the most devilishly demented shoot yet, we will be deciding Carillion's Baronial Champions for heavy, fencing, thrown, A&S, bardic, and of course archery.  Details for the individual tournaments will be forthcoming.

Archery Tournament:
Top score of Master Rupert's wandering shoot.

A&S Tournament:
The theme is monsters, anything that is or can be related to a mythical beast.  Bonus points for creativity and for obscurity of the beast selected.  Documentation should include something about the beast as well.

Bardic Tournament:
A single performance of music, song or story performed by a single person or group.  The theme can be a choice of something scary, or something that includes a Tyger.

Fencing Tournament:

Heavy Tournament:

Thrown Weapons Tournament:
