As always, Archery will be an important and integral part of the competition at Great Northeastern War.
This year’s novelty archery shoot will be sheep themed! You are the shepherd of a flock of sheep. In the distance, you see an approaching wolf ready to attack. Between you and the wolf is your flock of oblivious sheep. You must guide your arrows or bolts through the hanging sea of frolicking sheep to dispatch the stalking wolf!
Alongside the frolicking sheep shoot, there will also be traditional clout, advancing soldiers, and castle window shoots.
All equipment should reflect the spirit of medieval archery and should be appropriate for and familiar to you.
War point shoots can only be shot Friday and Saturday. There will be four shoots: Castle Clout, Advancing Soldier, Castle Window, and Frolicking Sheep. Each archer will have as many opportunities as they wish to shoot each target but may only submit their highest score for each.
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.
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 a minimum of 3 marshals required to keep the line running smoothly, but we always welcome more marshals for any shift. 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. Contact Lord Magnus Surtsson at if you have any questions.
