Archery & Ranges

Archery

Estrella War has many opportunities for Target Archery. Thursday afternoon will have a prize shoot hosted by the Queen’s archery champions in honor of Her Majesty. Friday will see the Barony of Tir Ysgithr sponsoring the shoot and providing a prize for the day’s high score. Look for lots of unusual scenarios and movement.

This year Saturday will host the newly formatted Estrella War Champion tournament. A scenario shoot in the morning will be held to qualify for the double elimination tournament in the afternoon. All score sheets must be turned in by Noon. The list will be posted at 1:30 pm. All qualifying archers should bring a minimum of 12 arrows/bolts to the elimination rounds that will start promptly at 2 pm. Even if you do not qualify to participate, plan on coming back to cheer for the winners of the final rounds, they should be really exciting to watch. Victors on Saturday will be declared the Estrella War Champions in three categories: Handbow, Crossbow and Youth.

This year we will again have a small range dedicated to the novice youth for teaching and a tournament. See the Child and Youth Novice Archery page.

Thrown Weapons will again have it’s own range. Teaching, Tournaments and Practice will be offered.
