Her Majesty Amalie's Contest of Axes
It shall soon be known of the love and skill at axes Her Majesty Amalie possesses and Her wish to share the joy of the range with Her people of the Midrealm. There shall, whenever possible, be thrown weapons at each event that Her Majesty attends during Her reign.
The target for Her Majesty's Contest of Axes shall be a circle of 12" with a centered circle of 4".
The outer circle shall be white and the inner circle shall be red.
The 12" circle will be scored as three points for an ax stick in that scoring ring.
The 4" circle will be scored as five points for an ax stick in that scoring ring.
Inside the 4" circle at the center shall be a green dot of 1/2" in size. This will be used to break tied scores. Should the scores be equal but one person has stuck the green dot more often than the other, the tie goes in favor of the thrower with more hits on the dot.
Each contestant shall throw from a distance at least 10 feet, or up to six of their paces from the target.
Each contestant will make six throws at the target and will be allowed to retrieve and score any weapon that sticks.
Minimum age for contestants is six years old with a parent at the range any time the child is participating in the contest. Should a child wish to participate in the contest they will need to attend an offered Children's thrown weapons class at the event.
