Clout Shoot

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.
