Benefit Bull’s Eye Derby Tournament at 3-Day

Attention all Throwers! The Barony of St. Swithin’s Bog will be hosting a Benefit Bull’s Eye Derby tournament at our annual 3 Day event. We recently updated our thrown weapons loaner gear and this tournament will be a benefit to help offset the cost to the Barony.
The tournament will begin when the range opens on Saturday, July 14th and throwers can participate in the tournament until two hours before court starts.
To participate in the Derby, a thrower must pay $5 per attempt (20 throws), and they can make multiple attempts. The goal is to get as many bull’s eyes as possible with 20 throws. All throws are at the 10 foot range and with any combination of axes and/or knives. If a thrower makes multiple attempts, only their highest score counts toward receiving a prize. A tie will be broken with a free set of 5 throws for each thrower, scored in the same fashion as the Derby.
The Marshal running the range may display the current three high scores or tell anyone that asks what the high scores are (but will not state the names of the throwers).
We are planning on having prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, which we will try to display.

Annual Bog 3-Day

BREAKING NEWS! This just in! Word has reached the Barony of St. Swithin’s Bog that an invasion force of Valiant Vikings is headed their way. Land fall has been estimated for mid July 13-15, 2018. The Baron and Baroness have been informed to be prepared for incursions from all compass points. But wait, there’s no reason to run screaming into the night! The Vikings are not out to steal the illustrious Saint’s Relic, the Gobi recipe, nor to ravage and despoil the lands. NO! They are coming to participate in the Bog’s Annual Three-day Event. Fighting? Of course there will be fighting! The Bog has the honor of hosting the next leg of the Æthelmearc 500 again this year! That’s not all, there will also be lots of Heavy Weapons, Fencing, Thrown Weapons, Youth Fighting and more. This will be a day of martial activities to satisfy even the hardiest of competitors….
