Dawn Metcalfe says the experience gets people out of the office for some laughter and a relaxed afternoon. The country venue, located halfway between Auckland and Hamilton, includes areas of large trees where the activity is held.
After dismounting in the carpark, people can relax with a drink on the deck. They then accept their medieval calling and transform into a royal, a noble, a knight or a peasant. After that they head to learn the ancient art of archery.
Participants compete for the ‘Bullseye Trophy’ then enjoy a banquet of chicken drums, breads, corn, salami, pickles and cheeses.
Metcalfe says part of the fun is cheering (or booing) the victors in a rowdy awards ceremony. The activity programme is available for a maximum of 40 participants. More details are available on their website www.themetcalfes.co.nz or view the Metcalfes listing on our website here
