Weekly Archery Practice Temporarily Relocated

Hi all from Niall!

Our usual space for weekly archery practice is currently infested with goats! Allegheny GoatScape is currently operating in the woods on the hillside where we set our archery targets, and will be there through at least the second week of October. As such, we will not be able to have our usual archery practice there.

But do not fret! We will still have archery practice this Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm. The archery range in North Park is open to the public and provides a nice wide open field for everyone to practice. The range is located at 852-872 Old Ingomar Rd, Allison Park, PA 15101 – this is near Moon Pavilion in North Park, if you wish to use that as a landmark for your GPS.

Yours in service,
Niall mac Rædwulf

Mid-Week Archery Practice, Wednesday

Hi all from Niall!

With the Baronial Archery Championship Shoot approaching this coming Sunday at our regular practice at Washington Blvd., I will be setting up and running a mid-week practice this Wednesday (July 19) at our usual spot, from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm (or we drop). Remember to bring water and sunscreen so you don’t get dehydrated or burned.

Yours in service,
Niall mac Raedwulf

Mid-week Archery Practice, Wednesday

Since the weather looks like it’s going to cooperate, and I still have the gear from last week’s practices burning a hole in my car, let’s have another mid-week practice!

I’ll be at the Washington Blvd. site (our usual practice spot) tomorrow evening from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm (or until everyone is done shooting). If you need loaner gear for Wednesday, please e-mail me at webminister@debatablelands.org.

Yours in service,
Niall mac Raedwulf

Archery Practice Thursday and Sunday

Salve accolens, Debatable Lands archers!

Due to our Captain of the Archers being out of town this weekend, I will be running the line for archery practice for our regular time this Sunday (June 25th) at the Washington Boulevard location. Please note that, due to mundane commitments on Sunday mornings, practice may not start until around 11:30 am.

I will also be bringing equipment so that we can have a mid-week practice tomorrow evening (June 22nd), 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm, at the same location.

Yours in service,
Niall mac Raedwulf

Here’s the archery schedule for the rest of May

Hello Debatable Lands!

There are a lot of great opportunities for archery coming up in the next month. Here’s what our schedule looks like for the next few weeks:

  • May 14th – Regular practice at the Washington Blvd. site from 11am – 2pm.
  • May 21st – *PRACTICE CANCELLED* Come to War Practice instead and shoot in the Kingdom Archery Championship on Sat. May 20th!
  • May 28th – The Sky List Tournament! Come shoot in the latest competition in the Stellar Tournament series, the Sky List! This month’s winner will win a little something extra! Details below. (Regular practice will also take place at the site from 11am – 2pm.)
  • Sat. June 3rd – Scarlet Guard Inn! This 8th annual event run by the Shire of Hunter’s Home and the Scarlet Guard is back, and it’s the most archery you’ll ever find at any SCA event all year! You won’t want to miss this one!

And now for the big news: The winner of this month’s Sky List will also be chosen as the Debatable Lands champion, and with a signed letter from our Seneschal, will be able to compete in a special tournament at the Scarlet Guard Inn! Let’s do our best and show the rest of the kingdom what we’re made of!

That’s all the archery we have to look forward to this month. If you need to borrow our loaner gear feel free to reach out to me on Facebook or Discord, or email me at archerymarshal at debatablelands.org.

Hope to see you all out on the range!
