Greetings onto the Throwers of Æthelmearc do I, Baroness Anastasie, send greetings and put forth this competition.
This isn’t a big competition but one to help challenge you and to help get you back in the swing of everything. I know we have trained ourselves to aim for the center of the target, this however will be a little more of accuracy than aiming for what we have trained ourselves to do.
This is to be done on a normal Royal Round target, scoring is as follows:
- 3-inch circle equal to 4 points.
- 8-inch circle equal to 7 points.
- 14-inch circle equal to 10 points.
- Outside of the 14-inch circle equal to 1 point.
So as you can tell, you want to aim for the 14” ring. The number of weapons will be the same, 4 axes and 4 knives from the 10’ line and 2 each from the 20’ line. This can be done at any thrown weapons practice, a normal Royal Round score sheet can be used and you can email me the scores. Please only score per practice, only exceptions would be if you wanted to do something like trying it off hand (mark with OF) or a separate spear Royal Round (mark with SP, special categories).
This will start June 1st and will continue June 30th. I know it’s not a whole lot of time but there will be more to come after that.
There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and first for offhand and spear if anyone does them.
Please remember to maintain social distancing, wear your masks, do your best and I look forward to seeing the scores.
