The far side of the lake will be for all things flight – archery, thrown weapons, atl atl and siege. Access for all of these activities will be from the end of the grit road around the top of the farm house and through the field gate. Access from the South (near the chicken farm) and across the bottom of the lake are prohibited as these areas are designated as range or range overshoot.
Targets for recreational shooting will be available while there are marshals on duty. For archery that will be 9am to 5pm except when Kingdom court and the procession are scheduled. Lunch break will be from noon to 1pm. Royal Rounds targets will be available, again, while there are marshals on duty. A RR score cannot be recorded unless a marshal is present.
Each day there will be a clout shoot, when a marshal is available, that starts at 120 yards and progresses forward to 100 yards, then 80 yards. There will also be a kids option at 50 yards. There will be at least one atl atl battle and one siege competition held on Thursday and Friday mornings (and possibly on Saturday morning as well), depending on populace and marshal availability.
