Upcoming Events

It's time to set down some kind of schedule so folks know where they can catch me if they want to speak in person or see what I've got in my sweaty little hands.

On Saturday, March 12, I'll be at the SCA event Gyldenholt/Calafia Friendship Tournament in Garden Grove. I won't be selling at this event but will have the bow horse and the now-famous hickory bow to work on. I've been working on this danged bow for at least two years now and hope to have it finished and shooting before I have to go into a retirement home. Stop by and have a chat!

Possibly my favorite 3D shoot of the year is coming up on April 9th - 10th.
This is the Chamberlin Ranch Traditional Rendezvous near Solvang, CA. While the shoot is only listed as being Saturday and Sunday quite a few people go up there early to really pack in the fun. I should be driving up Wednesday and coming home Sunday. I'll have the whole booth with me ready to sell custom dyed bow socks, beef jerky (sold out last year!), beautiful ready-made arrows, bamboo arrow shafts, and I'll be more than happy to take orders for custom arrows.

Saturday, April 30, will see us with the whole kit at the SCA's Angels Robin Hood Archery, Rapier, and Thrown Weapons Tournament at Woodley Park in Van Nuys. This is a rescheduled date as the original February date was postponed for weather related issues. This is a great event and I'm really looking forward to it. The winner of this event receives title to a square foot of Sherwood Forest in England. How's that for a great prize? He or she will also get something else but you'll have to wait for opening court to hear what that will be.

For the time being, that's as far forward as I've looked. I'll be adding a couple more events to the list soon. For sure there will be the Conejo Valley Archers traditional shoot but I have to look up the dates for it. I'm sure there will be other SCA events, too.

Stay tuned!

Happy archery!

This sucks. Almost all of the events are when I am away on business. However it is good to see you getting out and hopefully getting more orders for arrows.
