Vivat to Mistress Elska on becoming the new kingdom archery champion! As His Excellency Snorri stated about her prowess, she “…won the Champion’s Shoot in a most convincing manner – 21 points, while the next closest competitor had 6! It was a stacked group of eight shooters, including multiple Master and Grand Master Bowmen, and Scarlet Guard members, and she beat them all – AND so impressed the Queen doing so that she was named Her inspiration for the day.”
Mary, ahem, LADY Mary scored second on the overall range in bows, 4 points behind Elska. At court she received an Award of Arms for making arrows and baskets, representing the kingdom as a Pennsic archery champion, and other diverse things. Vivat!
