Appledore is unique in choosing an all-round champion,
competitors vie for points in 6 categories;

Each category is open for all to compete, each championship
candidate is scored on a scale from 1-6 points. The candidate
with the most points at the end of the event is named
Champion for the next year.
The champion has some responsibilities to the Shire for the
1) Represent the Shire at every opportunity, be proud of the
championship and show it.
2) Assist the Shire with all events, as much as you can.
3) Learn the history of Appledore.

always get along”- A round robin style tournament. Watch for
some fun scenarios to get the adrenaline flowing
c) Archery-elimination shoot- 3 Arrows each-Starting at 5yrds

hit in the “vitals” move back 3yrds and shoot again. Shooting
continues until only one shooter remains. Watch for some fun
shoots to get the adrenaline flowing
d) Arts-Create a “piece” of artwork the would have been used
or made by hunters in your personas time period
