Adiantum Birthday Bash 2014

Now in the spring doth the Dread Baron Durin and the Gracious
Baroness Ceridwen call forth from the populace of the Summits those
who would show skill with the bow and arrow upon the Target Archery
ranges of Adiantum. 
In search of an Archery Champion to follow the most excellent Don
the Archer, who by right of skill holds the title this day, they
have allowed their citizens to bring forth this challenge at

Adiantum Birthday Bash.

Therefore gather, ye good archers, and upon the fields of Coburg
prove yourself upon the day April 19th being counted
2014 Gregorian.

What skill of sight will be tested, what prowess shown, what might
of bow and swiftness of arrow!?  This alone doth Don the Archer
know and will forthwith prepare suitable targets that those who
appear before him to meet his challenge may be tested.
