Join us under the moon-shadowed sun to vie for glory in the Barony of Three Mountains’ Archery Championship (aka the Wolf Fork Invitational) and Thrown Weapons Championship!  Can you eclipse the competition?

In addition to the championships, there will be related activities, classes, games, and a silent auction. Food will be provided by the Virgin Countess Inn for an additional fee.

Parking is somewhat limited depending on how recently there has been rain.  Carpooling is appreciated!

While we anticipate pleasant weather in the 60s, please feel free to bring a cloak or coat, and while you’re at it, possibly a chair to rest them on if not needed. As with most working horse arenas, chairs are in short supply, as horses categorically refuse to use them for reasons only they can explain.

This is an outdoor event.  As we all know, mid-October weather in the Pacific Northwest can range from lovely to miserable.  Please check the forecast and be prepared!  The arena is covered but not enclosed.

The paths are gravel, but the underlying soil is soft.  Depending on the recent weather, the ground may not be accessible for some wheeled devices.  The covered arena has paved or packed walking areas and the raised platforms are wood desking.

There may be an accessible drop-off area with valet parking available.  Please contact us for more information.
