Archery

See the general timetable for times and locations of the various archery activities on offer.

The following is the list and descriptions of these activities.

IKAC (Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition)

An IKAC shoot will be held with Adult/Yeoman/Youth/Child divisions for period and non-period target archery.

The Hunt

There will be two prizes, one each for the top scoring adult and child archers.

Kings Round

Each archer has an agreed number of arrows (often 3) to hit the target, starting at 20yds. If unsuccessful the archer is eliminated. Successful archers move back 10 yards, or the target is moved back 10 yards.

The process is repeated until only one archer is left. In the event of a tie, a count-back is used with the archer hitting the target with the earlier of their 6 attempts being victorious.

Queens Round

A shooting competition that tests target archers accuracy at 30 yards.

Royal Round

A timed shoot competition that tests target archers accuracy under pressure at 40 yards, 30 yards, and 20 yards.
