2014 Debardchery: Archery, Bardic Poetry & Silly Games | Pacifica

The Shire of Cloondara (the San Francisco branch of the Society for Creative Anachronisms, who re-create the customs, combat, and courtesies of the Middle Ages) invites you to attend “DeBARDchery,” the annual archery and bardic tournament.

Watch people dressed in middle ages garb match their mirth, merriment, and archery skills (including using novelty targets) followed by a medieval poetic composition.

The theme 2014′s bardic competition is “King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.”

Wear Medieval Garb: Participants are expected to make an attempt at medieval clothing. Free medieval loaner tunics and accessories are available, but it’s best to put together your own medieval ensemble beforehand.

Bring a dish to share: There will be a free lunch, but please contribute a dish based on your name: A-J: side/salad; K-R: dessert; S-Z: main dish. The hungry archers will appreciate it.
