As the dawn’s mist slowly
clears we see a group of archers standing ready. Why have they
gathered? What would bring them together in the chill morning’s
light? This is the moment they have been waiting for. A chance to
test one another’s skill in the art of bow and arrow. A chance to
stand as Archery Defender, for their Baron and Baroness….for
Lions Gate!

A&S Contest
Theme: Anything Goes!
Categories: 1. Period Recreation This would include any piece that
is based on an actual period artifact.
2. SCA Creation This would include any piece based on our SCA game

period in a museum that would go into the Period Recreation. On the
other hand, if you created a slipcover for your Canadian Tire camp
chair that hid the fact it was a folding camp chair, that would go
into the SCA Creation.

must fit on an index card no larger than 4″x6″. Information should
include the artist’s name, what the piece is, whether it is a
period recreation or an SCA creation, and the purpose of the
