Archery will be held at the Freestone State School which is roughly 3/4 km away from Freestone Hall.
The start time has therefore been altered by a half hour to start at 1pm.
The activities will be (time and conditions permitting):
1:00pm - Archery practice starts.
1:15pm - IKAC starts
3:15pm - Royal Round Starts
4:30pm - Archery ends
The school has requested a small donation and so I ask participants to bring a gold coin to donate to the school as thanks for their assistance with the grounds. This is entirely optional.
Activities for Children.
There will be bread making, which the children will present at the feast to their Excellencies.
This activity will be ongoing during the day with a lesson in prepping the bread but the important part will be in the afternoon when the children will shape the bread however they like and present their efforts to their excellencies before placing the bread on the tables.
There is space in the hall for the children to play inside, out of the sun.
Although there will be some childrens activities, please bring items that will
entertain your children.
Things to Remember
- For the feast, remember your feasting gear, a teatowel, and candle and candle holder.
- Parasols and hand fans in case the weather is hot and sunny, there is little shade on the grounds
- Sunscreen and insect repellent (although mundane, it may make your visit a little more comfortable)
- Your arts and science project to enter the Baronial Arts and Science competition. See above.
