This event was formerly known as Archery Fest.  We enlarged the scope of it to be more inclusive and changed the name to Vulcanalia.  A full slate of archery activities will happen in the North Field as always; including:  York, Clout, Flight, IKAC, “Light, You’re Dead” (where we shoot floo-floo arrows at a moving bear target) many novelty shoots sponsored by the OGGS (with a prize for the most fun) Thrown Weapons (possible Atl atl) Siege Weapons, Equestrian Archery and Youth Archery Classes.

We’ve added Heavy and Rapier Tourneys and possibly Cut & Thrust, up at the Stage/Shelter area across from the Ag. Museum, also the usual Arts & Sciences and Largess Contests, plus a special Youth Challenge A&S: The best Volcano!

Volunteer Information

We Need a Senior Rapier Marshal and a Lists Volunteer!  Help is always appreciated for set up, take down and of course GATE!  Many Target Archery Marshals are needed to run all of the shoots.  We have a Heavy Combat Marshal, however, should there be an interest in Cut & Thrust we would need a marshal for that.  NOTE: during the plague times many Marshaling Warrants and Fighter’s Authorization Cards have expired.  Please be sure that yours are up to date.  We realize there is a bit of bottle-neck due to the dearth of those able to authorize such, so don’t wait till the last minute.
