West Kingdom Archery Championship @ Yolo Bowman Archery Club
Oct 23 – Oct 24 all-day

Unfortunately, this year the reigning Archery Champion is unavailable to host the event on the normal date with the Equestrian Championship. So, he has secured the Windy Meads Range. All skill levels are welcome to come out and shoot. Come out and and shoot for fun even if you don’t want to compete. Come out and picnic and cheer on the competitors! Bring a sack lunch and maybe a chair. The overall shoot will definitely be scored as a GAT, a Grand Archery Tournament, but the exact elements are not yet known. The winner of this championship will serve as Kingdom Champion for 1 year, stepping up at Twelfth Night. They should be prepared to meet all archery challenges and agree to run the shoot to be held during the following Fall.
