fifth international archery contest in Sokcho

As I am out of town, I forgot about this but a friend on Facebook reminded me this morning.

At the Hwarang training centre this weekend is a mounted archery contest (Hwarang is the name for Shilla knights of yore). After a short search, I could not find any information about the event this year. A British team attended last year and, at some point, a Korean archer was filmed at the event.

The Brits are back again this year, along competitors from Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Iran, Japan, Mongolia and the U.S. Those are the ones I remember. A friend of ours, a Korean English teacher who takes horseback archery lessons, is translating all the announcements.
It's a very cool event!
