7th Poulton Hall Rove

I would like to thank the members of The Longbow Club and everyone who attended the 7th Poulton Hall Rove.

We could not have asked for better weather, even escaping most of the rain that started just after the shoot. We hope that you enjoyed the day and look forward to welcoming you all back in April for the Geoff Trimble Memorial Rove.

Cheshire Tri-Clout – Day 2

Last day at the Triclout and the weather was a bit kinder today for the Metric, a bit blowy and some light showers but much better than Saturday & Sunday. Katrina Horton, Chris Eccles and I won the Longbow Team Trophy, although Steve Williams could also have been in the team as he got the same score as me. I hadn’t shot well all weekend but thanks to some good advice from Chris at afternoon sighters I managed to score 21 more points in the afternoon compared to the morning! It was also great to see Keith Ledson at his first Triclout.
