Here are some fun shots (as it were) from the Period Shoot held on Sunday:
In a wand shoot the target is a thin strip of wood, and in these modern times a pool noodle often serves the purpose. The qabac or kabak is a mid-east archery challenge, a target on a pole shot from horseback. It is similar to the popinjay shoot, which does not involve horses, and the target usually represents a bird — a popinjay — whose tail feathers must be shot off.

Don’t forget that tomorrow the ranges will be closed to other shooting while the Archery Champions Teams compete!
