Double Elimination – 5 Man Team/Archery Shoot & Prize Tourney

Requirements:  Each team will have five armored combatants (fighters) and one archer.  Each team will be a separate color.  Each armored combatant will have an 8.5” x 11” target of his Coat of Arms.  If the fighter does not have suitable arms, their name will be written in a blank shield on the paper.

These targets will be placed on hay bales and shot at by the opponent’s archer and vice versa. Each archer will have 30 seconds to fire as many arrows at their targets as they can.  A hit inside the shield will be a death to that fighter.

The Marshal in Charge and the Archery Marshal will tally the hits.  Before the fighting begins the Marshal in Charge will take each fighter aside and tell them whether they had been hit or not.

On the battlefield, each team will face off and advance towards each other.  The Herald will shout, “Arrows coming in!”  Every fighter whose shield had been hit by an archer will immediately fall.  The fighters who remain standing will fight until one team is victorious.

A box with six prizes will be awarded to the winning team.

The winning team, excluding the archer, will face off in a single elimination, weapon of choice tournament.  The winner will receive a prize.
