A small but dedicated group of archers and thrown weapons enthusiasts braved threatening weather for the traditional creative fun of this yearly event. The highlight was the woods shoot, which featured a wide variety of challenging scenarios including shoots through castle windows, an “immature wand” shoot through brush, and a swamp gas shoot. The course was made even more challenging by the torrential rain that broke out part of the way through the shoot. Although the archers came back thoroughly soaked, a fun time was still had by all, and the lunch table put on by THL Melusine and the Bastille du Lac crew was worth the wait (and the yellow jackets thought so, too).
