Ancestral Rememberance Celebration (ARC)

October 03, 2014 to October 05, 2014
Myrtle Holt

Grants Pass, OR

Autocrat: Bowen Doyle

Join the Shire of Myrtle Holt for our Ancestral Remembrance Celebration. What is the Ancestral Remembrance Celebration? The A.R.C. is a chance for anybody to join us to gather and celebrate the lives of those within the Society that we knew personally who for one reason or another are no longer with us on our journey through life.  A.R.C. is a day meant to be a celebration of life, full of fun and games, tourneys and competitions, and other such frivolities capped by a potluck feast, and finally an evening of bardic offerings commemorating our fallen friends.  We pay special attention at this event to providing lots of entertaining activities aimed at pleasing the youths of our families at all ages.  We want our SCAdian children to have an event that they really enjoy going to. Tentative list of activities planned for this year's ARC event: Myrtleholt Heavy Defender Tournament, Ronald Hawkwood Single-Sword Tournament, Myrtleholt 2nd Annual  Shire Archery Championship, the 2nd annual YAC Castle Diablotin Defender Tournament, The Tir Taingiri Estate Autumn Hunt (equestrian archery), Castle Wall Defender Strafing (equestrian archery), Classes, Childrens activities, Granny Grimm Kettle Toss, Garbology Competition, Remembrance Bardic.

Myrtleholt 3rd Annual Archery Championship
This year we have a very special and fun championship put together.  Based on people's interest and
excitement over the Tir Taingiri Equestrian Hunt that has been a staple of this event for the last few
years, we've decided to incorporate a walking hunt as part of the Championship this year.  Fortunately,
this will involve less walking than doing a York Round as we've done in years past, but do be prepared
to walk at least a 1/2 mile for Part 1 of the Championship. 

Championship Part 1: Tir Taingiri Estate Pedestrian Hunt  (Starting 10 AM Saturday)
Archery Championship entrants will have a
chance to do a ground-based hunt shoot at about 1/4 of the targets
that will be used in the Equestrian Hunt in the afternoon... PLUS additional targets specifically for the ground archers on
the second half of the walking hunt course.

Championship Part 2 -- Castle Zombie Fighter Shoot (Starting around 2:30 PM)
As available and willing, fighters who were killed in our other
Heavy championships later in the day will be enlisted to rise
up from their graves to become zombie targets for the archers
to kill. Exact scenarios are still in consideration, but may
include: Keeping the zombies from escaping the castle,
Defending the castle from zombie fighters, etc.
This section will require competitors to be shooting live
(well, yes, zombie alive) armored fighters with combat arrows
so if you have combat arrows, please bring them. Competitors
will have the benefit of not having to be armored. Zombies will
only be killable by valid helm kill shot, and will hold the arrow
of the slaying archer... scoring will be based on # of zombies
slain in each scenario. Zombie fighters enlisted will need to
have full armor and a demonstrated capacity to stagger slowly
