The Scarlet Guard Inn VII
June 7 @ 3:00 pm - June 9 @ 12:00 pm
Hosted By: Shire of Hornwood
**There is a ramp to get into the pavilion where the food is. The archery ranges are on open fields and through woods. It will likely take effort and help to get to the farther ranges, and the woods shoots may not be possible to navigate. Clean up after yourself. Leave the site better than how you found it. On leash or kenneled animals are welcome. Clean up after your animals. Well behaved pets and more importantly well behaved pet owners are currently welcome. Animals displaying aggression to any other animals or humans or loud running children as well as those who are overly disruptive will be asked to take their humans and go home. There are very few events that still allow animals. Please don’t ruin this for the future. A communal fire will be available in front of the pavilion. Fell free to join us there, entertain us there, or toss one of your hotdogs or marshmallows on a stick and heat it up. Fires appropriately cleared and with fire control items at hand are allowed at your tent. Just again clean it up and replace sod when done.**

Join the Shire of Hornwood again this year for The Scarlet Guard Inn Archery Festival. This will be the 7th 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 short of MAYBE Pennsic. As well as archery there is food, camping, music, thrown weapons, games, campfires, and of course good friends.
Come and enjoy more archery than you can shake a stick at. On average we have about a dozen different ranges to help keep you occupied and happy. On Friday evening we have a flight shoot and night shoot. During the day Saturday we have many novelty ranges and a few roving ranges so make sure to wear your walking shoes and bring plenty of arrows.
In addition to all the 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 group’s 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 email@example.com.
Since there will already be plenty of arrows flying through the air we might as well set up some thrown weapons butts too. Bring your axes and knives, maybe a spear or two and give them a throw.
Hornwood invites merchants to set up their wares at no additional charge. We had many great items for sale last year.
There will be a variety of classes available on a variety of archery related topics for varying skill levels. Please contact Baron Charles O’Connor for a list of classes, or if you are interested in teaching something yourself.
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.
We will have the main fire provided for socializing, feel free to join in front of the pavilion or have your own fire. But please leave the site as you found it.
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. Inspection are at the small building near the pavilion.
Don’t forget sunscreen and tick/bug spray, this is an outdoor event and some ranges take you through deep woods.
The site is discreetly wet. Pets Welcome On Leash and Well Behaved, clean up after your animal.
