Dun Carraig holds regularly scheduled Archery Practices on every Friday, at the home of Jonathas and Amalia. This practice is held reguardless of weather!! If it is nice out, the out-door range will be used, which can easily handle shooting at ranges upto 90 yards (but we typically shoot at ranges of 20 to 40 yards), or if Mother Nature is not being friendly, the in-door range will be used, which is only 20 yards. The ranges are open many other nights of the month as well, if you would like to come over to shoot. All archery is of the medieval nature, that is traditional recurves, longbows, and crossbows, shooting wood arrows with feather fletching. Training wheels on the bows are not allowed (modern compound bows).
Directions to Jonathas and Amalia's are available by contacting Jonathas at Jonathas AT DunCarraig DOT net or calling 301-392-0126.
If you have any questions about archery medieval or modern please feel free to contact Jonathas at the above email address.
