On April 22nd, an enhanced martial practice will be held at Earl Thomas Byron of Haverford’s castle, the address of which is listed in the Dark Pages.
The primary focus of the day is archery, with a range set up in front of the garage all day and also a shoot from the castle turrets from about 1:00 pm onward. THL Deryk Archer has worked hard to create a set of target challenges for us. The Thrown Weapons and Youth Fighting communities will join us. There will be a space dedicated to A&S, and a few classes will be held.
This practice will be held on Sunday, April 22nd in place of the regularly scheduled practice.
