    With the August report-eating Cu Sidhe safely fed and stabled, Toni Fierce, GM of Misfits of Society Guild, welcomed 23 archers to September's Best Shot in The Realm.

    The BSR is a free archery contest -- A fabled event, held monthly at the Skara Brae Faire Grounds (a historical gathering place for many Baja events), and is sponsored by M!S.
    This talented group of 22 archers and one, we think, fencer were competing for the 1-million gold prize, a unique engraved bow, the title of monthly winner and an exclusive seat in the year's end Champion of Champions shoot off.

    The 1st round began as usual with 22 archers merely taking practice shots and one person scoring a “12 “ to receive the 50,000 First Out consolation check. When a competitor asked Toni if that was a record, she replied, “NO! There once was a shooter who shot a 7.”


    The 2nd round only found Richard Lionhart falling aside, and 21 competitors moved to Round 3.


    The 3rd round, where only 3 perfect bulls eyes will move you closer to the title of monthly winner, found 15 archers left in the hunt and the crowd wondering just who would shoot a robin hood (RH) to score 200 in Round 4 and lay claim to Baja's best archer.


    Would it be -- Jonah, 8 bull's-eyes and a RH ? Moo Goo Gai Pan, 9 bull's-eyes? Dirnim, 9 bull's-eyes ? McThugger, 7 bull's-eyes and a rare double RH in Round 3? Or maybe these shooters who already posted RHs in earlier rounds: Chango, Claudia Drussila, Newt Longbow, Cherokee, Lil Debi, llama, Maleki ... or maybe one of the others??

    The last round with the crowd cheering, each archer taking his or her time, and all wishing each other “Good Luck” ended with none of the previous odds-on-favorites shooting the event-ending 200 . Who stepped up and won? None other then Sean Brega, this year's 1st double winner! Then it was noticed not only did this repeat winner prove he will surely contend in the season's finale, but he did it with a store bought bow!!


    Toni Fierce congratulated all the shooters then presented Sean with his 2nd engraved winner's bow and a million-gold check, which he again donated back to the prize fund.

    (Sara's Note: Thank you to Lil Debi for the screenshots, and Toni Fierce and her 'crew' for the score sheet and report as I could not attend the September BSR.)


    Everyone is invited to October's Best Shot In The Realm, which will be held on Saturday, October 24th at 8:30pm Pacific (9:30pm Mountain, 10:30pm Central, 11:30pm Eastern).
