Hear ye, populace of the Crown Province of Østgarðr!
As we come ever closer to the changing of season so must we, your provincial champions, also make way for change. As your archery champion, I hereby announce this year’s tournament to decide the next provincial champion.
This year we will be hosting the provincial archery championship at The Feast of John Barleycorn. The theme will be “An Archer’s Coming of Age”. With the aid of Lord Friderich Grimme and Lord Francisco de Braga, we anticipate this year’s tournament to be a great one.
I implore all Archers of the populace, regardless of skill, to participate in this year’s tournament. For those who are not of the province we also encourage you to participate so that we may recognize the best Archer from far off lands.
Yours in service, Catelin Straquhin, Crown Province of Østgarðr Archery Champion

This weekends archery practice will be moved from Sunday to Saturday the 18th at 1pm, in Willowbrook Park Staten Island.
Of course there will be no practice after that due to Pennsic. Practice will resume on 8//23.
Hope to see you at Practice and look forward to seeing you at War!
Remember to shoot your Archery war points!
Anyone who does not have archery equipment, if you would like loaner gear at war please contact myself or Suudur (Brad).
If you have shot with us at practice – or we generally know who you are, you can pick up the loaner gear and return it at the end of war or whenever your through using it.
If you have not shot with us and need loaner gear; you will need to shoot when we are at the range.
We will not have loaner gear for those who do no request it. Loaner gear is limited and at a first ask, first serve basis.
We will be holding our weekly archery practice in Willowbrook Park today (Sunday). Loaner gear will be available.
Practice will be beginning promptly at 1pm until 3pm. This will be the regular time for practices, hence forth. Targets will remain out after 3pm for people to continue shooting if they wish. This beginning time is scheduled for SCAdians who wish to shoot. i.e. people who are, or are very interested in becoming SCAdians. There has been an issue of people coming out just to shoot and not have any interest in the society and have been monopolizing the marshal’s time and equipment. This is why we are leaving the targets up after 3pm. If the mundanes want to shoot, we will welcome them to shoot after 3pm.
If you have any questions feel free to contact myself or the other Marshal’s, Chinua or Conor.
Lord Suuder Saran
Captain of Archer of Ostgardr
