Black Diamond has had a very strong and active target archery program for over a decade. Target archery is open to anyone, including children (some have started as young as three). Target archery uses "traditional" archery equipment and eschews modern developments such as compound (hunting) bows, sights, and so on.
For those interested in target archery, it is encouraged to visit Atlantia's target archery site at http://archery.atlantia.sca.org/index.php. For information on baronial practices, see the Baronial Calendar.
Marshals are safety officers in the Society, responsible for understanding the rules and regulations dealing with their particular martial activity and making sure that all such rules are followed. These rules include weapon and armor standards as well as what actions are and are not allowed on the field. If there is ever confusion about the rules, a marshal for that discipline is a good place to start asking questions.
Black Diamond has the following target archery marshals. If you're interested in becoming one, please contact one of the current marshals.
