Æthelmearc Holiday Shoot
December 10 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm
Hosted by: The Shires of Hunter’s Home and Coppertree
Archers of the Sylvan Kingdom, please come join us for a day of challenging indoor archery, holiday fellowship, and fabulous prizes!
The Shires of Hunter’s Home and Coppertree are combining forces to bring you the Æthelmearc Holiday Shoot, at the ENORMOUS indoor archery range of Route 157 Archery World in Venus, PA, on December 10th, 2022, from 9 AM to 8 PM.
There are over 80 3D targets at ranges out to 50 yards to be shot, as well as a few surprises in store from your co-Autocrats and Marshals-in-Charge, THL Alrekr Bergsson (David Bessler – firstname.lastname@example.org) and Baron Snorri skyti Bjarnarson (David Haldenwang – email@example.com).
In addition, this shoot will also incorporate the Kingdom Archery Championship for Their Highnesses Arnthor and Ceirech’s winter reign.
Event Price: $10
Member Discount Price: $5
In addition, there is a range fee of $12 for all shooters, payable directly to the Archery World range staff at their counter after you troll in.
Due to current COVID regulations required by Æthelmearc, all participants will be masked while indoors. No food or drink may be consumed indoors. No dayboard will be provided.
Participants have the option to register for a simple bagged lunch (which must be eaten outdoors). The cost for this service is $5, payable at the event at sign-in. Anyone desiring this service should pre-register for it here:
No food will be provided to anyone not registered via that link.
If you do not wish to purchase a bagged lunch, you have several options:
1. Provide your own food
2. Show up promptly at the event start, complete your shoot, depart for a late lunch off-site, and return for Champs, court, and awards after eating
3. Have brunch mid-morning, and show up to the shoot late. There will be plenty of time for you to finish the entire shoot if you come at noon.
Please be aware that the closest restaurants to the site are in Oil City and Shippenville; both towns are 12-15 miles away from the site on 2-lane surface roads. THERE IS TIME FOR YOU TO GET FOOD – but you must plan accordingly.
9 AM – Site opens, open practice begins
9:30 AM – Open practice ends, scored shooting begins
5 PM – Kingdom Archery Champion Tournament
5:30 PM – Royal Court
6 PM – Open shooting until range closes
Finally, Baron Snorri and THL Alrekr, the Autocrats, wish to give everyone a heads up so no one has to feel awkward on shooting day. Most of this facility’s space is dedicated to the 3D range. Between having space for troll and for inspections, tables for bag lunches, an area for royalty, and of course the shooting lanes, indoor space will be at a premium. We can’t promise there will be much space just for sitting and observing, especially if the weather doesn’t allow us to make use of outdoor space.
