Yep, less then two weeks now. This will be a medieval clothes/gear style event so we need as many archers as possible in the green&white. See under Traditional Archery for details Smile

.... our hobilar outriders have just reported a strong contingent of frankish troops massing on the eastern approaches to Melbourne. The Black Griffins have answered the call to arms and are to meet with the Men of Cheshire to crush this frankish invasion.

We should be able to bring them to battle next weekend on the banks of the yarra river.

If we can take them as they cross the ford we should be able to funnel them into an ambush where their numbers will count for nothing...

I'll see you on the field men.... for king and country!

Well said White Hawk ! For everyone going don't forget its medieval gear ! We want some good photos and video footage so if you turn up in jeans and T-shirt you may be kicked off our army and will have to shoot with the rabble.

We're expecting about the same numbers. We have a few spare green&white tunics/surcotes we can lend people , they will just need to bring a belt to wear over them.

The shield is painted!! Now lets hope not too many people put big holes in it Smile

There will be a sort of naughty satisfaction putting holes in someone else's shield as you know they have spent some time painting it up and making it look perty Laughing

Actually it will be great to get plenty of holes at it will look like it's been in a real battle!

I have incorporated a St-George cross upon which is emblazoned a black griffin, underneath which is my family coat of arms. Looks pretty swish I reckon.

The quandry! the balance of details and the look, against practicality of it being blasted into powder and styrene!! I'm hoping the rain holds off.

Who pulls the plug and when is the decision made???

Hey Llywd, your shields looking magnificant. Just re - oiled my bows to make sure ther'ye water proof as there is no stopping of this event due to weather. But to be honest as long as its no worse then today's weather it will be not too bad

They are lovely swans, not that there's anything wrong with ducks. Hope you all have a grand day. I've got a wedding soiree' party to attend so I will only be with you in spirit. Good-luck Ladies and Gents, Silverlady.
