On a lovely October day did the Crown of the East visit the shire of Endewearde for the purpose of a Royal Hunt. In the evening. They held court to reward certain of Their subjects who deserved recognition. The King was momentarily disconcerted by the presence of a broken black arrow on his throne, and asked Master Godric the meaning of this. Master Godric denied all knowledge of the arrow, stating that his arrows had different flights. Then did the King call for Lord Ane du Vey to bring him mead so that he would be prepared to drink whenever the word “hunt” was mentioned, and at last court was opened.
Firstly, the King spoke, thanking the shire of Endewearde for their hospitality and saying that They appreciated all the support given throughout the reign, from providing garb, to fundraising, to roasting a pig for the Pennsic state dinner.

The Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition (IKAC for short) is a privately sponsored shoot open to archers from all over the Known World. There are categories for different types of equipment, and separate divisions for young archers.
This year’s competition ends on December 1, so there is still time to participate. The IKAC can be shot at any event or practice where EK Royal Rounds can be run, as (for adults) it uses the same 20, 30 and 40 yard distances.
The current standings can be seen here: IKAC 2012 Standings
As you can see, the East Kingdom’s young archers are well-represented, but we need a few adult submissions in order to show a “team” average in some of the divisions. So, please consider shooting some IKAC’s at your practices before the end of November!
