    European medieval an renaissance archery contests and target

    Post by dutchbow on Fri Aug 12, 2011 1:34 am

    Hello All,

    I found a document on archery contest. I find it very interesting.
    In the article is a contest named Popinjay. This contest is still held by crossbow guilds here in The Netherlands.
    That also what I'm doing in my avatar.

    Her is the link to the PDF:
    European medieval an renaissance archery contests

    enjoy.

    The author puts on some great shoots and has a lot of information on period shoots. I had a lot of fun shooting in one of his period crossbow tournaments he hosted at Estrella War (2nd largest SCA event) two years ago. I am hoping to get him to host another one at Estrella War again soon.

    Thanks for posting.

    Hey thanks Dutchbow. I hadn't seen this before but that is one good resource.

    I think I will have to keep this handy for when I have to design a tournament. Which is coming up in several months. So this will be useful sooner than expected.

    Yes, thank you, Dutchbow... I very much enjoyed reading that. Geezer has often told me of many kinds of tournaments, but that doc has some great info, and some historical tidbits that were fun to read.

    Best!

    Very much so, John, thanks again. Have a recent client interested in Italian bow tournaments, and I think he will find it intriguing, as well.

    Best!
