A big thank you to Cherry for organising and hosting this event.
I’ve never shot clout before and for me it was a very enjoyable day. I think everyone who participated will tell you the same thing.
Hopefully we’ll have another such event soon and if you’ve never shot Clout before, come along and give medieval archery training a try.
Yet another great day, and congratulations to Ogmore on taking the cup, we were pleased to see everyone mixing and enjoying their selves at such a well attended event. Thank you to all our guests for taking the trouble to travel to us and support the event, it makes it all worthwhile. Continue reading “Multi Club Friendly Results”

What an excellent day’s shooting and it is always good to welcome our friends from Fast & Loose, even if we did have to beat them again.
all went well and the food was great, with a nice relaxed social event, makes us look forward to the next one.
Thank you to everyone that put in a lot of hard work setting up, preparing food and putting the kit away. Particularly thanks to Richard who helped line the field and reminded us nearly too late we needed some target faces, these always help at a shoot. Continue reading “Fast and Loose Friendly”
