Pennsic 48 Archery – Day 1 Populace Shoots

There's a demon in the castle window, worth extra points.

There’s a demon in the castle window, worth extra points.

This year, a fourth Populace Shoot has been added. In addition to the clout, advancing soldier and castle window (untimed), there is now a friend/foe shoot. This shoot has long been a part of the Champions Team Competition, but now everyone gets to try it. It is timed, and there are negative points for hitting the “friendly” part of the image.

Here are the results for the first day of shooting:

East and Allies Middle and Allies
Day 1 Points Archers Points Archers
Castle Window 472 121 444 106
Advancing Soldier 820 113 1184 170
Clout 418 70 571 78
Friend/Foe 188 56 178 64

The Populace War Point Shoots take place over 5 days:

Sunday, August 4 11 am – 5 pm
Monday, August 5 11 am – 5 pm
Wednesday, Aug. 7 11 am – 5 pm
Thursday, August 8 11 am – 7 pm
Friday, August 9 9 am – noon

Archers may shoot each of the four populace War Points up to a maximum of 5 times – either once on each day the range is open, or by shooting multiple times on fewer days. Please note that the Populace War Point shooting is CLOSED on Tuesday, because the Archery Champions Team Competition uses the whole range.

Every archer of any level of skill or experience can score war points. Come out to the range and make a difference!

Volunteers Needed to Set Up and Pack Out East Kingdom Royal Encampment at Pennsic

Tags

, , ,

Greetings all! Now that it’s close enough that you maybe have an idea of your Pennsic schedule, please consider assisting with setup and/or teardown of East Kingdom Royal Encampment at Pennsic. It’s a great way to meet people and it’s fun to see it all come together.

Companions of the Order of the Tygers Cub will be serving cold beverages to the work crews – any children old enough to work without direct parental supervision are invited to help them.

Setup Start Times: Tues 7/30
Tygers Cubs: 9:45am
Gate Pavilion: 10am
State Kitchen: 10am
Windwalls: 11am
Vigil Chapel/Garden: 11am
Hospitality: 12pm

Teardown Start Times: Friday 8/9
State Kitchen: 11am
Hospitality: 1pm
Tygers Cubs: 1:45pm
Everything else: 2pm

We’re looking for just an hour or two of your time – with the streamlined, staggered workflow there shouldn’t be any standing around waiting. Last year teardown was complete by 3:15!

There are some small jobs that don’t require strength or the ability to stand for very long, especially in the State Kitchen, so don’t hesitate just because you’re not able to swing a hammer or carry a heavy box.

In Service to the East,
Mistress Eleanor fitzPatrick
EK Royal Pennsic Steward
