All old and new friends, please heed our call, and we’ll all join together and celebrate Fall!
This beautiful site is a great place to camp, and go Viking hiking! If it’s not too cold and damp.

Archery and Thrown Weapons

Friday- September 22

After range set-up and subject to marshal availability, inspections and open practice.

 Saturday- September 23

9 am- Inspections and warm-ups

 10 am- Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition (IKAC)

2 ends of 6 arrows untimed at 40, 30, and 20 yards each, and 2 ends of 30-second timed rounds at 40, 30, and 20 yards.

 11 am- Norse Skein Shoot

Each archer is given an equal length of string (3-4 feet). Each archer shoots 3 arrows per end, from 20 yards, wrapping the string around the grouping and cut off. The excess string is the archer's life line in the next end. The archer is eliminated if they cannot wrap their string around the grouping. The ends continue until most or all archers are eliminated. The person with the longest string at the end wins.

 12 pm- Lunch Break

 1 pm- Iðunn's Apple Shoot

Iðunn, the Norse goddess of apples and youth, was famed for her golden apples that could restore youth with a single bite. But watch out for the poisonous red apples. A single bite will cause one to faint onto death.

 From 20 yards, archers will shoot six arrows at the target.  Iðunn's golden apples are worth 5 points. But remember, a single bite restores youth. Only one arrow per archer per golden apple will receive 5 points, any additional arrows are 0 points. So the archer will want to shoot at multiple apples for higher scores.  

 The poisonous red apples are worth -3 points. But remember, a single bite will kill. Only one arrow per archer per red apple will lose 3 points, any additional arrows are 0 points, because the red apple already "killed" you with the first arrow.  

 The green apples are ordinary apples that are healthy to eat. They are worth 1 point per arrow per archer. Multiple arrows count.

 3 pm- Wand Shoot

Shooting at pool noodles from 20 yards.
