Archery enthusiasts looking for a weekend of fun and friendly competition came to the “greatest longbow-only rendezvous in the country,” the annual Great Lakes Longbow Invitational at Historic Charlton Park, Aug. 10-12.
The event included archery-related activities for all ages and skill levels, including tomahawk throwing, Silver Arrow Shoot, the ‘Ol Sagamore Turkey Shoot, Maid Marion, Sherwood Challenge and a Commemorative Arrow Shoot, and a chance to hear archery experts around the campfire.
A coached children’s range with bows and arrows provided was available for young archers beginning their longbow adventure.
Archery vendors offered custom made items and a trade blanket and barn raffle was held for those looking to barter or pick up archery odds and ends. Demonstrations include bow building and flint knapping.//
