Agincourt Shoot - Province of the Silver Desert (Reno, NV.)
Join the Province of the Silver Desert as we once again celebrate the battle of Agincourt with a really fun Archery event. Can you really shoot as well as the average period archer? Can the duck be hit this year?
There will be target, distance, and cloud shooting. Total beginners to advanced shooters are welcome. Bring your own lunch, drinks, and snacks. There will be a bow and arrows you can borrow if you do not have your own.
The site has the following rules: absolutely no dogs allowed. Drive 5 mph or less to create zero dust. No holes other then the edge where the sunshades will go. The gate must remain locked, so just be patient and someone will come to let you in (or arrive between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. for no waiting).
Gate open: 9:30 a.m. The shoot will start with a pancake breakfast and warm-up shooting at 10:00 a.m. The competition shooting starts at 11:00 a.m. and ends when we are exhausted.
Donations to offset the costs of breakfast and privies will be gladly accepted, but there is no site fee.
