Join The Shire of Hornwood again this year for The Scarlett Guard Inn Archery Festival. This will be the 5th year that our Shire and the Scarlet Guard have teamed up to bring you the premier archery event of the year. Nowhere else in this great Kingdom of AEthelmearc will you find more archery in one location, and we daresay not even at Pennsic. As well as archery there is food, camping, music, games, campfires, and of course good friends.
In addition to their spectacular and creative ranges and shoots, the Scarlet Guard has issued a challenge to all Shires, Baronies, and Cantons to send their best archer to compete. To enter an individual must have a signed letter of entry issued by their groups seneschal declaring you as their representative in the competition. They also ask the competitor to add a small item or token to the prize basket for the winner. In addition to the prize, the victor will walk away with the annual competition banner to display throughout the year. Each year the winner’s and group’s name will be added to the banner to create a legacy of great archery and ultimate bragging rights (members of the Scarlet Guard are not allowed to enter). If you have any questions regarding the challenge please e-mail the archery coordinator Juan Miguel Cezar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also we will be hosting the competition for Kingdom Archery Champion at The Scarlet Guard Inn this year. The current champion, Lord Ichikeiro Osoroshi, will provide us with a great tournament to determine who will be the next Kingdom Archery Champion.
Hornwood invites merchants to set up their wares at no additional cost. In fact, anyone can be a merchant at the Hornwood Trade Fair. If you have SCA related items that you would like to try and sell or trade, feel free to add it to the Trade Fair. We have trustworthy volunteers to keep an eye on your wares while you are enjoying the event.
There will be a variety of classes available on a variety of topics for varying skill levels, tentatively.
There will be no feast at this event, however there will be a free side board open through the day on Saturday in the tavern.
Want to compete off the field as well? Two gaming tables will be available in the tavern with an assortment of games to choose from. We welcome any additions.
We are also inviting the bards of the kingdom to come share their talents. Please add to the atmosphere and join us in the tavern and around the common fire day and night!
Camping is free! Please feel free to stay Friday and Saturday night. There is plenty of camping space and some already have regular spots but, it is first come first serve. There is space for RVs but it is limited and there are no hookups and no dumping allowed, please contact the autocrat ahead of time. Enjoy your own camp fire or be sociable and join us at the common fire. Firewood is available for free also on a first come first serve basis.
Your equipment will need to be inspected before you can shoot. If you are day tripping make sure to be there early enough to get it out of the way so you and our inspectors can enjoy a full day’s activities.
Don’t forget tick/bug spray, some ranges take you through deep woods.
The site is discreetly wet.
