Daffodil Tourney

I'm quite looking forward to the SCA event this weekend, in Victoria. It's my first time at this event, and my first even this year. Apparently it takes place mostly in a sort of barn, in a field filled with daffodils.

I wasn't expecting there to be any archery, but it turns out there is some sort of prize shoot. I haven't even drawn my bow (well, my girlfriend's bow) since October or so. The practices move indoor for the winter months, and I just couldn't drag myself all the way out to Burnaby to shoot indoors.

I haven't decided yet if I'll actually enter the archery lists. Being so out of practice, and my last experience shooting while actually wearing proper SCA garb... it just gets in the way. I need proper bracers for both arms, to hold the baggy shirt sleeves tight against my arms so they don't get in the way of the bowstring.
