Shoot Begins: Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Shoot Ends: Friday, September 30, 2016
Scores must be Submitted by: Sunday, October 30, 2016 


This shoot consists of three stations:

Ground Target Station

 •Target old socks stuffed with plastic shopping bags. Each target shall be approximately the size of a male clenched fist, with a knot tied in the back of the sock to keep the stuffing in the foot of the sock, and with a tail of unstuffed fabric in the back. The targets will be secured to the ground with a 9” length of ¼” fiberglass rod spiking the unstuffed end of the target tail into the ground.
•Distance 5 targets are placed at each of the following distances: 5 yards, 10 yards, and 15 yards. There should be approximately 1 yard between each of the 5 targets across the range.
•Time Limit 90 second timed end
•Scoring Each target may be hit only once. Scoring is 1 point per hit on the 5 yard targets; 2 points per hit on the 10 yard targets; and 3 points per hit on the 15 yard targets. Any contact of the target (either stuffed or unstuffed areas) with an arrow or bolt counts as a hit. Shots do NOT have to be a full “stick” in the sock target to count as a score, therefore spotting by non-shooting archers is encouraged.

Wand Station

•Distance 20 yards
•Time Limit Untimed, 6 arrows/bolts

My Good and Noble Atlantian Friends of the Bow,
IT’S ON! We now have 4 practices willing to shoot the SPACSS on June 26th. 
In the North, we have the Bright Hills Practice, 
in the DC Area we have the Roxbury Mills Practice,
 In VA we have Grimmsfield,
 and in the South we have Lorelei’s practice.

The Challenge:
Any practice (private, baronial, shire, or canton) that can submit more scores to the SPACSS shoot over the last weekend of June then Grimmsfield will receive a dozen Royal Round Targets to that practice or practices.  
Please note, this prize does not go to the practice with the most, but to any practice that can get more scores then Grimmsfield.  This will be for new scores as well as archers increasing their current scores. I will accept scores from Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  Because I know that none of you can beat the might of the archers who shoot at Grimmsfield, I will be happy to deliver these targets to you by crawling into court on my hands and knees and proclaiming to all the might of the archers of your practice. 

In other news from this shoot:
Atlantia now has 7 scores for the shoot posted, all in the top 12. We hold spot 2, 3. 4. 7, 8, 10, & 12. 
This is a great Start, but let’s truly shows them the weight of the Atlantian Archery program.  Even if you are not going to Pennsic or do not think you will try out for the champions team, please come out and shoot this to show the size of the Atlantian Archery programs. 

Grimmsfield Practice:
 Sunday June 26th from 11 am till dusk. We have a full complement of loaner gear as well as people willing to help you learn to shoot. This need not be an all day event if other business presses, but please come and join us for an hour or 2 if you can.
 If you cannot make it during this time but want your name to represent Atlantia, please pm me and I can arrange a time for you to shoot the shoot.   

Grimmsfield will be cooking hotdogs and Bratwurst in sauerkraut over the fire to as a repast from the shooting. Anyone coming is invited to bring snacks or a side dish to go along with this. 

Thank you,
