We will have a full day of throwing. Starting after court and ending a 1/2 hour before evening court.
Jeanne Hatcher was born Jeanne Fourquet or Laisné, on June 27, 1472, just over four decades after the death of fellow Frenchwoman Joan of Arc, Jeanne was a citizen of the town of Beauvais, which was besieged by the forces of the Duke of Burgundy. That day, the Burgundians made a furious assault, and according to the stories they managed to make their way onto the battlements of the town. In declaration of the impending victory, a Burgundian planted a flag upon the battlement, a symbolic act of victory. with the future of her city in doubt, Jeanne took in hand an axe and rushed the flag. She smote the man, tore down the flag, and the tide of the siege was turned.
Today’s throw is in testament to Jeanne’s prowess with an axe. Our contest is to defeat the Burgundian’s. You must throw an axe, knife and spear and score points by hitting the kill spots on our Burgundian targets. You will move down the line to each station. If you use a multi-edged weapon, you must pick the edge that will be counted. No double points.
