Horses and Heroes 2016
October 21-23, 2016 Location: Ponderosa Trails Campground, Pineville, MO Royalty
- Blood of Heroes Shoot. The featured shoot was the Blood of Heroes Shoot held in the morning. This was a team shoot and we were able to shoot 5 rounds. Teams of 4 archers shot at targets related to the Blood of Heroes Game.
- Michael the Wanderer’s Moving Target Shoot. Once again, Michael agreed to bring his moving target to a Grimfell’s event. This year’s target that I call Version 3.0 was particularly challenging and I believe everyone had a great time shooting at it.
- Contiguous Numbers Shoot. In this shoot, archers shot at targets that were divided up into sections where the smaller the section the greater the number of points. Archers were only allowed to score points when they hit target sections that direction bordered each other.
- Open Circles Shoot. In this shoot, I cut out the 5 different colors from a standard target and attached each color separately on the target butts. Scoring occurred if the archer hit the color or hit within the circle of the color.
- A total of 15 archers participated. We had two archers from Gleann Abhann.
