The Barony of Altavia invites you to join us on October 26, 2014 at Woodley Park archery range for our version of The Battle of Agincourt. Altavia’s Archery and Thrown Weapons champions (adult and youth) will be decided from the day’s competitors!
When engaged in a battle for King, Queen, and country, one should display their colors proudly! To make our re-creation day extra special, please bring and display your heraldic garb, banners, standards, pennons, gonfalons, shields, etc. Anything goes for displaying your heraldry for all to see! Prizes will be given for the best displays, the most creative use of your heraldry and much more.

They may participate if they have passed the proper authorizations and met the following requirements: Persons 14 through 17 years of age must have a properly executed minor’s waiver and medical authorization form on their person; a parent or legal guardian must sign them into the thrown weapons competition.

(From South of the event, that’s the 405 North; from North of the event, that’s the 5 South to the 405 South.) Exit at Burbank Blvd and turn West. The Sepulveda Basin is now to your right (if you cross Sepulveda Blvd, you are going the wrong way). At Woodley, turn right. Look for a sign that bears the legend “Japanese Gardens”. Turn right towards the gardens. Just before entering the gardens, turn right on the access road that traverses that park picnic grounds. Continue along this road, passing the Cricket fields on the left, until you reach a traffic circle. The Archery range is on the left, up the hill. Parking is limited up near the range, but overflow parking is available alongside the range, behind the paved lot.
