    May's Best Shot In The Realm was held on a late May Saturday night. A gathering of archers not before seen had showed up to compete for the coveted Best Shot in the Realm crown. Toni Fierce, GM of Misfits of Society, gave her welcoming speech and the signups concluded with 28 archers anxiously awaiting the first round of shooting.


    Yourself was the first shooter, and everyone knew that this night would be different when he posted a 200 and a robin hood before the crowd had even settled into their seats. A 70 score is required with 3 shots in the 1st round to move onward ... after the first round ended, and to everyone's surprise, NOT a single archer failed to move to round 2. Toni Fierce, with an accumulation of gifts donated by guests and shooters to be given out , was unsure of what now to do when the 50k consolation prizes and a number of arrow commodity deeds were in her pack with no one to award them to.

    The second round started, and the buttes were not as kind as a number of archers including such renowned shooters as Frigin Azim, Kathryn, the early robin hood shooter Yourself, and others failed to move to round three.


    Round Three, with a perfect 3 bullseyes needed, found the field being reduced further to just six archers ready for the next round. chocalot, Lazarus, Maleki, Tsukiko, and Decimation showed they were getting ready when all posted a robin hood in Round 3.


    Round 4 is usually the deciding round, and the round where you have to be beyond perfect to win ... 3 bullseyes with a robin hood thrown in scores you a 200 and usually the crown.
    Parisa and Lazarus were perfect without the winning robin hood. Maleki posted the robin hood, and the crowd thought the event was over when his last shot went wide leaving him with a 160 score. Everyone was told not to leave as a shoot off was in the future.

    A 5-shot shoot off was announced by Toni Fierce ... the highest score would be awarded the crown. First up was chocalot who posted a robin hood and set the bar. Parisa was next, and an onlooker said 'Hey yur bow's coming apart!' But Parisa shot anyway and scored a 90. Tsukiko was called next to shoot, and then called again and again ... she was gone!! Many in the crowd wondered why she would have left at this moment when Theoran hollered over (Theoran is the guard at the small house) 'She'll be right back, she's busy!' Toni skipped her to move to the next shooter. Lazarus and Maleki both posted 210s; then decimation shot 5 bullseyes for a 250, when Tsukiko came running back asking, 'Am I too late?' Toni answered, 'No. Go and shoot now.' Well the shack visit must have helped as Tsukiko posted a robin hood and ended with a 300 score to snatch May's Crown and was awarded the million-gold check and a one-of-a-kind engraved bow.


    May's tournament was over. All the shooters were thanked as another winner of Misfits of Society's 2009 Best Shot in the Realm was crowned, and another seat in the year end Shoot-off of Champions was added.

    The next Best Shot in the Realm will be held on Friday, June 19th at 8:00PM Pacific ( 9:00PM Mountain, 10:00PM Central, 11:00PM Eastern)
