Greetings
to all:   August 24-26 WILLIAM TELL
XVII
 

This
year’s William Tell is going to be Archery only!  Due to low
participation numbers in Equestrian, in the last few years, we have
decided to dedicate our energy and talents to putting on an
outstanding Archery event even larger than we usually do. 
More area will be dedicated to the archery range and as we have
been doing, combat archery with the castle will also be included.
Royal Rounds, York Rounds, Novelty Shoots, as well as the
Competition to be our Protector for both Adult and Youth. 
Letters of intent to the Seneschale/Stewardess before the
competition is required.

The
Mountain/River Double Dipping War that was drowned out at Defenders
Tourney and War, will be continued.  Fighters  come help
defend the honor of the Shire of River’s Bend!!

Thrown
Weapons of course will be a big part of the event. Classes for
learning how to throw as well as Marshaling.

Bocce
Tournaments for Women, Men and Children.

A wide
range of  Classes for Archery and Thrown Weapons as well as
others to have something for a wide range of interest. We will be
able to take care of Marshal promotions as well.

The now
traditional Ladies High Tea will be held Saturday
afternoon:






Unto the Ladies of An Tir, Gashi (Greetings):

 

         The Lady Eglentyne
and I would be honored for all Ladies joining us at William Tell
this year to come and partake of the many

resplendent treats and teas garnered from along the Oriental trade
routes and throughout Europe.    Those Ladies who
are so

moved we will again be having prizes for tastiest
treats:   tea sandwiches,  mouthwatering biscuits,
croissants, cookies, platters of succulent

fruits and vegetables, competition with 4 prizes chosen and
transported from distant lands with care for the master chefs
and

Overview
of the beginnings and history of An Tir. Discussion oriented
class
with a handout.  This is a great class to ask questions
about
the SCA, good for newcomers who want to know how it all began.

Making Arrows,
“Medieval Style”

Rhobert am y bwa will discuss period
arrows and what we know about them

based on visits to English and French
Museums, finds from the Mary Rose and

archeological evidence.  He will
then explain how he makes target and

replica arrows using today’s
available resources, demonstrate the

techniques and how to use various
handy tools.  The class will look at

shafts, nocking, cutting fletches and
attaching, whipping (wrapping or

binding) fletching, piles and
points.

The intent is to learn to make your
own period looking arrows for target

shooting and SCA events for about the
same price as you would pay for wood

arrows with plastic nocks and field
points. Each person will get several

handouts so it will not be neccessary
to take notes.  But you can if you

want.

In case you need an introduction, I
am Robert ‘Bob’ Chenoweth.  I live in

Moscow, Idaho and work for the
National Park Service as a Museum Curator at

Nez Perce National Historical Park
just east of Lewiston, Idaho.  I

attended my first SCA event in June
2010, Honor War in Lewiston and am

active with Lyonsmarche.  I have
travelled twice to Europe in the past 7

years to research medieval archery,
ship building, and life.  My main area

of interest is England and Northern
France (site of most of the fighting

during the 100 Years War).  In
that regard I’ve visited York, Leeds (Royal

Armouries), Portsmouth (Mary Rose
Museum), Hastings (and Battle) for Norman

Conquest,  Dover, Calais,
Bayeux, Caen, the towns and battlefields of

Cressy and Agincourt, Crepy en
Valois, and various Museums in Paris

including Musee du Moyen Ages. 
I also have a keen interest in Nordic

seafaring and trade, and have visited
Viking village and archeological

sites in Sweden, Denmark and Northern
Germany, the Roskilde Viking Ship

Museum and Northern cities associated
with the Hanseatic League.

I have two boys in college, four cats
and two Mini Coopers.

Since this is not a workshop that
produces a product there will not be any

cost.  Because we will not be
“working”, I do not want to restrict the size

of the
class.
