I had posted to the Caer Darth Mailing list that I would be "hosting" an archery practice at the DeLavega park on the 3rd Sundays of the month. We had our first practice this month and it happened to fall on the Santa Cruz Archers first annual picnic!! - but guess what this months 3rd Sunday falls on a war Weekend for Sept... so.. For those of us who cannot attend Ducal ( seems 3 day weekend calls to memories house projects) and since the following weekend is the horse show - this >>>> Sunday 9/3 <<< is it! So between 1-2 we will be doing archery practice and then from 2-3+ we will playing with our rattan ( war practice! and /or raprap practice.). Now some of us < pointing at myself > are new and just getting our kit together, but we can still play with the hope of getting authorized in time for WAR! If you have combat arrows I would be interested in seeing them as I will have my first set hopefully ready for the WAR! ( yes yes plus authorization!).
If you can make it great!.. If you have information or are part of the Darkwood War Unit (is there one??!) let me know!! Would love to chat with you and understand how this goes. I will be at fighter practice this thursday ( I think it is thursdays at 730 ish? right?!!! in the parking lot?!)
