Archery

As always, Archery will be an important and integral part of the competition at Great Northeastern War.

This year’s archery theme will be Star Wars: The Castle Clout will be a life size Darth Vader; The Advancing Soldiers will be Storm Troopers; The Castle Window will be a light saber; and our Novelty shoot will be Flying Tie Fighters defending the Death Star

All equipment should reflect the spirit of medieval archery and should be appropriate for, and familiar to, you.

East Kingdom Archery Policies and Equipment Standards will be in force.

War Points

There will be four war point shoots: Castle Clout, Advancing Soldier, Castle Window, and Hanging Novelty Targets. Each archer will have as any opportunities as they wish to shoot each target but may only submit their highest score for each. War point shoots can only be shot Friday and Saturday.

In addition to the War Point shoots, there will also be a standard range for practice and Royal Rounds, as well as a small youth range operating near the tree line for instruction and short range shooting appropriate for our next generation of archers.

Archery Marshals: Help make the weekend much easier on the Archery Marshal in Charge. Any assistance, even if it’s just for an hour or two will be greatly appreciated. There is an online signup to make organizing marshal signups easier. Follow this link to sign up: https://volunteersignup.org/LKPHX. There is a minimum of 3 marshals required to keep the line running smoothly, but we always welcome more marshals for any shift. Contact Lord Magnus Surtsson at if you have any questions. Additionally, this is a great opportunity for MITs to get practice running a complex and busy line and performing equipment checks while also being observed by different marshals.
