The new Baronial Archery Champion is Wintherus Alban. Huzzah!
Woe to any who would attack our walls, for they shall not advance within bow shot for the hail of arrows that will be.
Our thanks to Lord Sigmund for his year’s exemplary service.
We congratulate all those who participated in this years’ championship. It has been a lot of fun.
We had 20 archers in the field round of the championship today, and a number of observers. The picnic lunch was ample and scrumptious, and we were blessed with gorgeous weather and magnificent views.
There were six fabulous entries in the A&S competition, ranging from the practical to the delicious. There was poetry, there were bunnies, there were cupcakes, as well as a masterfully decorated bow rack and a token effort by the incumbent champion.
Lady Avril of Ambledune won the A&S with her perpetual banner, featuring archery motifs and space to record the personal colours of each of our champions past and present.
As Baron and Baroness, we were proud to witness the prowess of our archers, to see their creativity and to enjoy the hospitality of their table. It was also lovely to have other members of the populace turn out to enjoy the day with us. Thank you, and we hope to see you all again very soon.
