"Novelty" shoots involve non-traditional targets. "Combat" archers are armored and shooting at each other.
The Archery Contest will consist of 5 events intended to test the accuracy and control of both Experienced and Novice alike. The contestants must kill the “Mad Bear”, accurately conquer the targets of skill, and defend the peasants from the Enemy Knight by firing through the castle wall. These events will be scheduled Saturday for the Adults and Youth, and an “Over 40” event for 10am Sunday so that our older participants will be well rested for the competition.
