We hope to bring you updated information for Rowany 2014 soon. Until then, this is from 2013′s Festival:
This year there will be several target archery competitions for you to join in. Don’t worry about it being a competition though, as anyone who has shot beside Lochac archers knows we are a friendly and welcoming group of people. So come and join in. The important thing is to participate because that is where the real joy in Archery is.
As always there will be an Interkingdom Archery Competition (IKAC). There will be two sessions, Friday and Monday afternoons, and you can shoot at one or both. You can find the rules for the IKAC at http://www.scores-sca.org/public/scores_rules.php?R=10&Shoot=157.
On Friday there will be a Queens round. This is an elimination competition shot at 30 yards. You have three arrows and must score with one of them. Each end the size of the scoring area of the target is reduced by half a colour. This is continued until only one archer is left.
On Saturday afternoon there will be distance shooting with both a clout shoot (the target is a big circle on the ground at 100 yards) and a Kings Round. The Kings Round is another elimination competition starting at 20 yards. You have six arrows and must score with at least one of them to stay in. We then move the target back five yards and do the same again. This is repeated every end until only one archer is left.
Finally, I would remind all archers that you may only shoot when there is a target archery marshall present who is running the line.
