Gregory the Great Academy celebrated the second weekend in October with their annual Robin Hood Days festivities. Activities for Saturday afternoon included competitions in knife throwing, fire building (without matches of course), archery, quarter staff jousting, and a timed rabbit hunting exercise. The students camped out on Friday night and on Saturday, ate a deer shot by Mr. McMyne, who organized the day.
Come, fill us some sack! Let us e’er be merry while we may, for man is but dust, and he hath but a span to live here till the worm getteth him, as our good gossip Swanthold sayeth; so let life be merry while it lasts, say I.
~The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
