10/03/2012: Lord Otto Gottlieb, Endewearde Brewers' Guild Master, writes: The Endewearde Brewers' Guild is please to once again host the Annual Potables Competition at The Hunt. We are most honored to have Their Majesties in attendance. You are invited to submit ONE ENTRY PER CATEGORY for judging by your fellow brewers. Please also remember to bring a clip board, pen, clear tasting glass, water, and a chair. It is also highly recommended that you bring multiple copies of your documentation to pass around during the time your potable is being judged. This will expedite the process, but leaving ample time for Q&A.
The potables competition will begin at 4:00 PM on Sat., 10/6/12. This is between the woods walk ending at 4:00 and dinner starting at 5:00.

Arts & Sciences at the Endewearde Hunt
Embroidery competition with Elizabeth of Endewearde

Endewearde's First Archer Competetion
Endewearde Archers only
Sunday at 1:00 pm
Lord Gwillim Kynith, First Archer of Endewearde, has designed three shoots, with a tie breaker. Unlike previous years, there will be NO elimination shoots; every contender will be able to participate in all three shoots. The First Archer shoot will start on the range at approximately 1:00 pm on Sunday. It should be quick and fun. Everyone is encouraged to show up and cheer on our archers.
To select the contenders, eight Endewearde archers with the highest scores from the Hunt (who are present and wish to compete) will advance. Other than choosing the eight contenders, the Hunt score will have no bearing on the champion shoot scores. In fact, the first shoot will help level the playing field for all; it's called "The Equalizer."
Lord Gwillim, Captain, NTAC
