July 15 archery practice recap

14 people came out to enjoy an unexpectedly modified practice that also
included the return of lost archers!

Today we saw Lovell, Leonard and Trish, and Edwin on the range!

The practice was modified due to the unexpected presence of cars on the
range, so most of the practice we could only shoot the 20, with the 30 able
to be uncovered near the end of practice.

Score submitted:
Target Buster:
Tymme – crossbow – 105

Tymme “Prodkiller” Lytefelow, OGGS

Archery Practice Report for 7/8/15

Greetings Archers!

Well the weather was not set to “Broil” today and a breeze kept things cooler and much more interesting for shooting!

Apparently apologies are in order, one of the guys must have put out the “No Girls Allowed” sign and we were stuck with six men on the range. Mea Culpa!

To the scores!

Evrard: 87
Gervais: 84

Tymme:101 (One of his best and he’s back to a Grand Master average again!)
Gervais: 79

Period Crossbow:
Tymme: 90

This weekend I’ll have the range with full loaner gear. Weather looks like it will be optimal for archery!

Archery Report for 6/10/15

Yesterday was an amazing day to enjoy shooting a little archery at the range!

Eighteen archers took the line and it nearly looked like a class reunion of the SCA archers. Names like Lovell, Kate, Rauthulfr, Osanna, Sebhdann and Marion joined us once again this Wendesday. Don’t be strangers guys!

We had one unusual happening, a brand new string for Osanna almost came completely apart after a couple of arrows downrange. No one injured and it looked worse than it was.

Did you know that every strand of B-50 string is rated for 45 pounds? Lots of redundancy built into a 12 strand bowstring!

To the Scores as 10 of the 18 attending archers recorded Royal Rounds.

Sebhdann ingean Cinaedha: 50
Emma la Rouse d’Argentan: 63
Irene McKenny: (Senior Youth) 49

Dearbhail: 85
Gervias Blakglove: 77

Tymme Lytefelow:94

Archery report for 5/9/15

Forty Five people attended a gorgeous Saturday morning practice, FORTY
FIVE! It’s like you guys like archery, rapier and thrown weapons in the
same location or something.
Our Baron and Baroness had a “kangaroo court” (In the Baron’s word’s
“Because you never know when we’re going to pop up!”) to give out the
remaining medallions for last years An Tir Top Ten rankings.
Wyewood earned around one third of all the medallions in all of An Tir last
To put this in perspective, up until 2005, our fair branch had 3
medallions, all shot by children, until Daffyd and August medaled.
Since then we have earned 207 medallions.
We have come a long way from a fledgling canton to a strong barony where
the archers are known and feared.
To the Scores!
Rignach of Argyll: 64- career best!
Daffyd de Doake: 90
Rurik Sokolov: 55

Dearbhail: 77
Wulfwyn: 71
