The individual with the best score was Mestari Urho Waltterinen, and the team with the best score was Lady Phelippe "Pippi" Ulfsdotter and Countess Rosalinda d'Castille, for their performance they were awarded with tasty beverages.

On this day the youth archery champion Lady Alyssa von Stahlgeist relinquished her position and ran a tournament to determine her successor, which was run with the assistance of Baron Sogtungi Bataar. after shooting at cowardly lions, tiggers and care bears there was one whose performance stood out from the rest. Carl Brandubhson proved to be the best shot this day and so was declared baronial youth archery champion. With a scroll by THL Kieran MacRae.

Maistir Brandubh O'Donnghaile was called forward as outgoing archery champion. He too ran a tournament to determine who was to be the next to bear the title of baronial champion, however before that he presented to Constance the prize that was awarded to him when he won the 7 pearls archery championship, 33 pearls, one for every point he scored in that competition. The victor in that tournament was Ichikeiro Osoroshi, and as Brandubh turned over the baronial archery champion's quiver he placed in it one of his bolts to add to over 10 years of history of the barony's archery champions.

There was yet one more championship that took place this day.

After going through an extremely difficult course there was a winner to this competion, Hanse Drachensohn won the day with a score of 59, however as Hanse is not a resident of the barony he was not eligible to bear the title of baronial champion, so Countess Rosalinda d'Castille was declared the champion with a score of 52.
