Hello!

Members of  Free Archers Association, Romania ( Asociatia Arcasii Liberi)  have the honor and pleasure of inviting you, between 1-7 July 2013, to attend our bow making gathering. We offer the following:

- we offer free accommodations in camp or in a hotel for 18$/bed ( this is up to attenders)
- we offer food (breakfast, lunch, dinner)  and drink (beer, soda, etc) at price of 30$/day
- we offer bow stave of black locust, dogwood, for bow making  for everyone as much as you can work
- we offer bamboo and ipe ( wich is very hard to find here) at cost price ( 4$ and 8$) for someone who wants to make lamanted bows and save money on transport of big luggage.
- we provide all necessary tools and you should bring minimal tools for bow making
- each day we`ll have an organized archery shooting ( flight, golf archery, 2D targets, flu-flu targets, etc) and of course a free target range when you want to shoot in our camp
- in one day we will visit Sighisoara the only fortified medieval city continuously inhabited during  XII  and the house where Vlad the Impaler  was born ( transport is included, visiting is up to you but no more than 10$ per ticket)

We  will take care of traveling within Romania! We`ll be in touch with every one and help you arrive fast and safe to our meeting and after to go safe!
Because traveling costs are big no matter from where you come we will sell some bows and the money will be used in equal share for each PP member that comes to the meeting.
Our biggest goal is to have a happy and great time in Romania and make new friends and strengthen old friendships and for one week to forget all worries. We are waiting for you! All the best!

If it is possible try to get a ticket for one of this destinations in order stated below but if you have a best deal for one specific airport choose that one:

1. Tirgu Mures airport
2. Sibiu airport
3. Cluj-Napoca airport
4. Bucharest airport (last option)

First 3 airports are close to us (100 km range) and Bucharest not so close (350 km). But there are transport choices every two hours so it is not a problem at all. Tirgu Mures, Sighisoara, Dumbraveni are veri close and to the intersection of the roads from any airport.

Maybe you guys don't remember, but for our gathering in Bojenci Florin sent us a big box with steel plates for our blacksmithing workshop, with horns for bow nocks and glue and some tools. I'm still keeping a part of them which were not used! 
If you guys need something that we have here - just drop a line!

The aeroplane tickets are much cheaper if you buy them early as possible. We are anxiously searching the best solution to fly there.  Now it looks like we have to come to the Bukarest.
Who else wants to come?
