Calling all archers! MITs wanted!

Greetings archers of the Debatable Lands!

I am officially putting out a call for marshals-in-training for target archery in our Barony! Some of you have already reached out to me and some of you have already begun training, but I would like to get a definitive headcount of all who are interested in becoming marshals. The duties of an archery marshal include:

  • Inspecting participants’ equipment
  • Assisting in the setup and teardown of the range
  • Assisting the marshal-in-charge with calling the line
  • Ensuring all rules and safety standards are upheld
  • Submitting a quarterly report to the Kingdom Archery Marshal

The Marshal’s Handbook can be found on the Kingdom Earl Marshal page at In the headings at the top of the page, the society wide handbook is under Society Rules and the Kingdom handbook is under Policies. All marshals and MITs must know both rulesets.

If you would like to be an archery marshal then please send me a message either via facebook, or via email at archerymarshal at debatablelands dot org.

*Note: You must be a member of the SCA with an active membership in order to be a marshal.

Thank you all for your interest in volunteering! See you on the range!

In service,
Ronan O Conaill
Captain of Archers, Debatable Lands

Archers of the Debatable Lands!

This Tuesday, May 24th from 5pm to 8pm we will be holding a weekday evening archery practice at the Washington Boulevard site! To make up for missing practice today we will be holding a practice that evening led by Lord Godfrey de Bayeaux. So come out and join us to enjoy an evening of archery!

Hope to see you there!

Archery Practice tomorrow canceled

Greetings Debatable Lands!

Given that some of our equipment and a number of our marshals are at War Practice right now, I will not be holding practice tomorrow at Washington Blvd. I hope everyone in attendance at War Practice is having a blast!

On that note, congratulations to our own Lady Gredechin Mörin de Nordenberg for winning the distance shoot on Friday, and congratulations to the new Kingdom Archery Champion, Baron Snorri!

Archery is back this Sunday!

Archers of the Debatable Lands!

This Sunday 04/17 archery practice is back at the Washington Boulevard park from 11am to 2pm! Spring has sprung, and now it’s time for us to return to the practice field to hone our skills.

Starting this Sunday we will be resuming weekly practices at the site. For more details see the Baronial calendar at:

Hope we see you there!

Yours in service,
Rónán Ó Conaill

Archery practice tomorrow is canceled

Hello Debatable Lands!

Tomorrow looks to be another cold and wet Sunday and so I’ve decided to cancel practice. Sorry to everyone who was hoping to get one last official practice in for the season, but it would seem the weather doesn’t want to cooperate.

But keep an eye on the blog for later announcements! We may still try for one more outdoor practice in December if people are up for it.

Also this winter be on the lookout for events hosted at Chieftain Archery, the indoor archery range where we occasionally hold events. For example, Lord Godfrey is organizing the 3rd annual BMDL Archers Potluck there on December 18th. Hope to see you there!

November Stellar Tourneys!

Hello Debatable Lands!

The next Stellar Tournaments will be:

Sky List – Archery – Sunday, November 14th at practice
Sun List – Heavy Fighting – Sunday, November 21st, at practice
Moon List – Rapier Fighting – Sunday, November 21st, at practice

(Weather, permitting of course. If our marshals cancel practice, the tourneys will be likewise canceled.)

Read more about this month’s Sky List (Archery) here.

We have a special treat for November’s Sun and Moon List, in that both the heavy and rapier fighters will be competing in side-by-side lists!

This special cross-over is a great opportunity for fighters to observe similarities and differences in fighting styles, and enjoy each others’ camaraderie. This is likewise an opportunity for MoLs, Heralds, and Listrunners to gain experience in running multiple lists at once.

We will be breaking from Stellar Tournaments in December, but will resume (if safe) in the new year!
