Sunday, February 17, 2019
The Barony of Lyondemere is proud to host their annual tournament to choose Their Excellencies’ new champions of Archery and Arts & Sciences at Lyondemere Arts and Archery on Sunday, February 17, 2019 at Rancho Park Archery Range. All are welcome to participate in a fine day of archery, competition, and sharing of artistic endeavors.
Because we are a seafaring land, our themed shoots and activities will be centered around what else, the sea! Artists who desire to compete for our championship will be awarded extra points for providing objects related to the theme.
Throughout the day there will also be fun, hands-on arts demos.
Shoot till you drop! (Then shoot a little bit more.)
We’ll have fun with novelty shoots, which you can shoot as much as you want, with only your highest score counting. There will be sic different shoots going throughout the day, including some terrible monsters to shoot, as well as our current champion’s favorite seasonal (can you beat her highest score?). We’ll be using the 10m, 18m, and portable targets for variable distances on the 50m ranges.
There will be a special art shoot starting after lunch. To qualify, either the archer or their consort* must enter an art or science entry in a special art competition (*your consort may be your partner, a friend, sibling, an artist/scientist that you admire, or one you just met and decided to team up with).
Once the tournament ends, DON’T pack up yet! While the final scores are being tallied, come to the 18m range for the return of the beloved balloon melee! Every archer will get a balloon to pin to the target wall, representing their life on the melee field. Try to take out as many other archers balloon until someone gets yours. Who will be the last archer standing?
The finals will be a modified forester round, on a novelty target. The Baron has challenged our current champion to come up with something really difficult, will you be up for the challenge?
We will have a few options for you to show off your newest object d’art (and/or science)!
To enter Baronial Championship you will need one period object (any type, from functional to non, any period medium) and provide written documentation. Please send a brief description of your entries for arts champion, by January 15, to our minister of arts so she can arrange suitable judges for your work to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a great opportunity for those wanting feedback on their projects for Pentathlon to assist in honing your entries.
All ages welcome (there will be a youth category, judged separately). The Lyondemere Art and Science Champion is judged on a recent, completed in the past year (2018-2019) project, and is expected to be fully documented. Because the judging is to be “’blind” please do NOT put names or any other identifying marks on entries or documentation. Entrants will be given a number to identify their entry at List.
Archer/Consort Art championship — anyone vying for the archery baronial championship, and provides an art or science project (either from the archer or their consort), will be placed into a special shoot and their submission will be eligible to win a prize. These entries will be chosen by their Excellencies and all objects need to come in with no identifying marks on the item or documentation (if provided).
There will also be a People’s Choice Arts Competition for those who wish to display their skill, but do not have proper documentation, or do not wish to enter in the championship competition.
A donation breakfast and lunch will be available. Further details to be posted closer to the event.
