Thrown Weapons & Atl-atl

Thrown Weapons Marshal in Charge

TH Lady Eadgyth aet Staeningum

So that all throwers from all kingdoms can participate, we will be using the Society Thrown Weapon Rules rather than rules of the Middle, East, or Æthelmearc.

In addition, please note these items for Pennsic War 48:

The marshals are always willing to teach new people to throw. There is a small "teaching" range available for classes and teaching only. If a contest is in progress, this range can be used to teach beginners.

The Range

The Thrown Weapons and Atl-atl ranges are located on the east side of the Battlefield, just to the right beyond the Fort.

The range can be open if a minimum of two adults, one being a TW marshal, are present on the range. We have a flag system to show the range status: the green flag signifies the range is open. The red flag signifies that the Atl-atl range is open. If no flags are flying during normal operating hours, the range is closed (likely due to weather or terrain condition making the ranges unsafe).

If you are available to help with set up, your assistance will be greatly appreciated. The old adage, "Many hands make light work" is very true for range setup. The more help we have, the faster the range can open up for throwing.

Marshals & Training

Marshals are needed to run all of our ranges throughout Pennsic. Help from Marshals-In-Training (MITs) is encouraged, and a quick way to put in your time.
