- Clout with Moat Monster: Shots landing inside the 30' circle were worth 3 points; shots hitting the crouching guard targets in the center were worth 4 points; there was a "moat" at approximately 50 yards worth 1 point, with a "moat monster" in it worth 2 points; 6 shots, untimed.
- Viking Ships: 6 shots, untimed; targets depicted viking ships at 15, 35, 45 and 55 yards, worth 1, 2, 3 and 4 points, respectively; archers could shoot at any target they wished with their 6 shots.

Archery Champions Team Tournement
(1 war point, shot Wednesday, August 8, 2011)
This year the allied East and Midrealm kingdoms fielded teams of 20 each, as did the Atlantia and AEthelmearc alliance, for a total of 80 competitors (plus alternates). The winner of this war point was the side which won 2 of the 3 shoots.
- The Roving Range consisted of 10 stations, laid out on the main archery ranges (not in the woods). The theme of the day was that the Archery Champions were starting Ragnaroc, with targets such as a gjallarhorn, snowflakes, Odin and Slepnir, and freeing Loki from shackles.
- The traditional Friend/Foe shoot was at a depiction of Lif, Lifthrasir and Yggdrasil: on a target at about 30 yards, archers had 30 seconds to hit the tree (Yggdrasil) for 2 points while avoiding the intertwined figures on which hits were negative 1 point.
- Long Distance: all team members took 4 shots each from 3 different unknown distances estimated to be between 130 and 50 yards; there were multiple warrior targets with hits on each illustration worth 1 point.
