    April Best Shot In The Realm
    submitted by Toni Fierce

    It was a cool, spring Friday night that April’s BSR was held at the Skara Brae Faire Grounds. This was the first time that the famed BSR was held on an early weekend night. Twenty-One archers showed up for the event. After Toni Fierce, GM of M!S, gave her welcome to the BSR Speech, the archers signed up at a convenient table next to the podium.

    The 1st Round minimum of a score of 70 was breezed through with only one archer failing to meet the total. Count of Berg was given a consolation check for his efforts. It seemed to the archers present that the quality of shooters had definitely risen and that all must bring their "A" game to be crowned the winner as no less then three archers robin hooded in this early round and 10 others were perfect.

    The 2nd Round only found two more archers falling out with five more archers sharpening their aim with robin hoods.

    When the 3rd Round started, it was a difficult round where only the perfection of three bulls-eyes would move you to Round 4. The 3rd Round started with Zanza and Aeon Flux piercing the buttes to perfection, and then IT happened. Who knows what caused it? Was it a Friday night evil omen? As Kathryn (February’s winner) and Arson stepped up to shoot, the buttes shook, the wind picked up, spectators were looking around in wonder, and 8 consecutive shooters, some of Baja’s best, shot arrows all over the place, and 8 consecutive shooters failed to pass Round 3. Some wondered if only 2 shooters would move to round 4. Then the murmur in the crowd ceased and the wind slowed ... Nikita ,Cherokee, and Ahebban joined the first two to move to Round 4.

    The final Round 4 required a score of 200, a number beyond just perfect bulls-eyes, started with Zanza, Aeon Flux, Nikita, Cherokee, and Ahebban vying for the crown. Cherokee robin hooded the final round but also had a near miss and a 10 score on one of her shots, but Zanza who was perfect all evening showed his skill and with a 200 grabbed April’s Crown and a seat in the years end Champions Shoot.

    Toni Fierce awarded Zanza his winner's 1- million gold check and his engraved bow while the crowd cheered.
