Event description:

Altavia's Agincourt Anniversary Sunday October 28, 2012 The Battle of Agincourt was a decisive victory for the English during the Hundred Years War. The French were sure their superior numbers and the crossbow would bring a swift victory to France. The outnumbered Englishmen with their longbows proved them wrong. C'est la vie!

The Barony of Altavia invites you to join us on October 28, 2012 at Woodley Park archery range as we celebrate the 597th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt. Altavia's Archery and Thrown Weapons champions (adult and youth) will be decided from the day's competitors!
