The Archery Tourney will be Saturday and start at 12pm noon sharp! We’ll accept the first 16 competitors as thats our maximum that can compete. At 11 am the Board will open to allow people to enter themselves by touching the scoreboard. After seeding the tournament with the competitors, Archers will face off against each other , and the best score of 5 shots will allow them to advance until we have a Champion! The Champion will receive the coveted Golden Bow Trophy & 500L. 2nd & 3rd Place will receive $250L & $150L Respectively.
The Joust Tournament is on Sunday and starts at 11 am SLT on the Button! Again we can only accept 16 competitors so like the Archery event the day before… Plan to arrive early to assure yourself a spot! Once the Tournament Scoreboard is opened, people may enter themselves into the Tournament by touching the board.
All rounds will be SINGLE ELIMINATION with the Exception of the Championship Match which will be best of three ( AKA 2 out of 3 falls).
Trophies awarded to the top 3 finishers. Grand Champion will receive $1000L, 2nd place $500L 3rd Place $250 L
Bloodsong is teaching Classes for Raglan U at the Joust & Archery Platform all week on how to Joust properly using the Lance and Hud while atop your Horse! Check the Event Calendar for class times!
Also you can practice at the Archery Range and at the Joust Tilt all week until the day of each tournament so feel free to get some practice in! Bows & arrows that you need for the archery are free at the Archery Range and Demo Horses and Demo Lances are available at the Tents by the Joust Tilt as well as full version Horses with and without Armor and Lances, both for purchase.
*NOTE – The Demo Lance will NOT work with the practice Rings and Practice dummies but you can still practice Jousting with a friend on the Tilt with the demo.
