Archery practice happening this Tuesday evening!

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!

Vivat!
Ronan O 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!

Sunday’s archery practice will include the next Stellar Tournament!

Archers of the Debatable Lands, this Sunday November 14th will be the next monthly installment of the Stellar Tournament – Sky List!

This month’s tournament will be held by Lord Godfrey, last month’s Defender of the Sky. Come out and shoot and see if you have what it takes to become this month’s Defender!

Archery joins the Stellar Tourney this Sunday!

Archers of the Debatable Lands,

As you’ve no doubt already heard, this Sunday a new list will be added to the Stellar Tourney! We have a Defender of the Sun and a Defender of the Moon. Now we seek to name a Defender of the Sky! And who better to defend the sky than the archers?

Join us at the Washington Boulevard site on Sunday August 15th at 11:00am as we hold our usual practice. Then around 12:45 we will shut down the range and begin the tournament at 1:00pm. All are welcome to compete!

The format of the Sky List tournament (like the format for all of our archery championships) is a surprise and the targets and rules will be different every month, so be ready for anything. See if you have what it takes to become the Debatable Lands Defender of the Sky!

If you have any questions or if you would like to request loaner gear please email me at archerymarshal (at) debatablelands (dot) org.

Let’s Make Target Stands

Once more the passage of time (time flies like an arrow, they say) has wrought its depredations on our Barony’s archery target stands. Two years ago, the Debatable Lands A&S community and the Woodworking Guild banded together to make new target stands, and we are planning to do so once again this Sunday, July 18th!

Two of the new stands, at practice.
Two open archery target stands, with archery practice in the background.

Come learn or practice some basic woodworking skills while providing service to the Barony and its Archers! Join us at the Washington Boulevard site from 11am to 2pm, the same time as Archery Practice. Please wear close-toed shoes, and bring your protective gear like gloves, eye protection, and mask.

Captain of Archers Ronan is providing materials, Master Alaric is providing a good set of instructions, and I’ll be bringing tools. Feel free to bring your own tools if you have them.

See you Sunday!
