Adiantum Birthday Bash 2014

Now in the spring doth the Dread Baron Durin and the Gracious Baroness Ceridwen call forth from the populace of the Summits those who would show skill with the bow and arrow upon the Target Archery ranges of Adiantum.  In search of an Archery Champion to follow the most excellent Don the Archer, who by right of skill holds the title this day, they have allowed their citizens to bring forth this challenge at their Adiantum Birthday Bash.

Therefore gather, ye good archers, and upon the fields of Coburg prove yourself upon the day April 19th being counted 2014 Gregorian.

What skill of sight will be tested, what prowess shown, what might of bow and swiftness of arrow!?  This alone doth Don the Archer know and will forthwith prepare suitable targets that those who appear before him to meet his challenge may be tested.

 Yet not only archers shall be entertained at this gathering!

Come ye all forth to the festivities for the Event Stewards, the Honorable Lady Johanna, by the grace of God, and her most esteemed mentor William Cristofore of Devonshire, have called on friendship far and near to provide the following activities and their calls were answered most abundantly!
