History

The second of two championships created in the reign of William and Elspeth, 2nd Baron and Baroness of Terra Pomaria, the Archery Champion is the fourth earned title created in Terra Pomaria that began at Long and Short of It Tournament XXXVII/2002. The 2nd champion, Gawin of Kevelioc had to abdicate the title after being elected as heir to succeed as Baron of Terra Pomaria revealed at Summits Fall Coronet Tournament XXXVIII/2003. His selection resulted in a conflict of fealty that required abdication of his championship. Baron William and Baroness Elspeth released him at the next Terra Pomaria event Baronial Revolt XXXVII/2003 and after consultation with the Mistress of the Lists, it was deemed suitable that the runner-up in the last archery championship tournament, Duncan McKai, would be invested as the 3rd champion to finish Gawin's tenure.

Determination

Determined annually at the Long and Short of It Tournament. The means of competition involves input from both the current champion and the branch archery marshal. Forms of competition have included a "wand shoot," "royal round," "string shoot," and combat archery firing at a moving armored human target.

Consort

Entrants competing for champion are not required to have a consort. Since Long and Short of It Tournament XXXVIII/2003, the consort of the Archery Champion has been deemed eligible for receipt the Order of the Iris of Saint Elizabeth (also known as the Honor of Elspeth's Iris) of Terra Pomaria by the will of Elspeth, 2nd Baroness of Terra Pomaria.

Regalia

Includes the baronial bow bearing the barony's arms, the baronial quiver containing arrows with the name of each champion etched on them (both items created by Gawin of Kevelioc) and a cape bearing the colors and arms of the barony.
