What is the Coastal Grand Baronial Championships?

It is the event where brave and noble fighters, archers, and equestrians will complete before not one, not two, but THREE Baronies. Each of these groups will select their Chivalric, Rapier, Archery, and Equestrian Baronial Champions on that day. Winners will receive great loot from the Barony and well as the title and honor of that Barony's Champion!

But wait, there is more! In addition to the selection of individual Baronial champions, the three Baronies will select overall Coastal Grand Baronial Champions from the Chivalric, Rapier, Archery, and Equestrian competitors. Once again great bounty will be gifted to the winners!

A&S! The event will also have an A&S display competition, by populace vote, documentation encouraged. All levels welcome, including children. And there will be prizes! There will also be A&S classes in the main hall.

Archery Competition Details

Upon the splendid fields of Coastal Ansteorra, the Archery Champions of the Baronies of Loch Soilleir, Stargate, and Coastal will be determined. Come and test your mettle against the best our Kingdom has to offer, vie for either Barony or both if you desire. Rest assured your skills will be tested no matter if you be a crossbowman or handbowman.

We have gathered a noble selection of rounds designed to test your skills against a variety of targets and even a Combat Archery round to make sure our Champions can defend no matter what the field of battle may be. The Combat round will have available the required combat legal bow/crossbow, ammo, head and hand appropriate armor.

We look forward to seeing the best Ansteorra has upon the fields of glory that our gracious hosts are providing.
