Alison Williams

Cumbria Archery Double Double Clout

Great fun at the Cumbria Metrics at Penrith this weekend, but it was so hot! We usually moan about the wind but this time I would have welcomed a bit more.

All the Lady Longbows were on the same target which meant we had a riotous time!

Nina Horton was 2nd Lady Longbow and Steve Williams was 3rd Gent Longbow.

It’s a pity there wasn’t an ice-cream van there – it would have made a fortune!

Eagle Bowmen Weekend of Clout

A lovely weekend at Penrith for the Eagle Bowmen Clout.

A 2-way Imperial on Saturday and Metric on Sunday. The wind was blowing a hooley on both days (even worse on Sunday) but at least the rain held off.

We had a great time, even better because all the longbows were together on one target instead of spread out all along the line. So many laughs!

Katrina Horton and Chris Eccles came away with shinies and a large doorstop!

Archers of East Riding Double Clout Weekend

Day 2

A great finish to a great weekend at Driffield. Steve Williams was 2nd Gent Longbow and Nina Horton was 1st Lady Longbow. And both with GMB scores!
Very difficult wind again with added hailstones! We had a wonderful time.

Archers of East Riding Double Clout Weekend

Day 1

A good day at Driffield but what a wind! At least it was from behind and not a headwind but it was very gusty and difficult to read. Nina Horton was 2nd Lady Longbow and Steve Williams was 3rd Gent Longbow. Great to see old friends again.

CAA’s Metric Clout

A great day at the Cheshire Metric Clout for The Longbow Club. Katrina Horton was the Cheshire Lady Longbow Champion and Alison Williams was 2nd; Chris Eccles was the Cheshire Gents Longbow Champion and Steve Williams was 3rd; Katrina, Alison and Chris won the Longbow Team Trophy.
Helen Horsley was 1st Lady Visitor Longbow and got her first GMB score.
A lovely day with friends and we had podiums to stand on too!

5th Yorkshire Clout Weekend

Day 2

More medals today Katrina Horton 1st Lady Visitor Longbow and Chris Eccles 2nd Gent Visitor Longbow at the Yorkshire Clout. A great time was had by all especially as Steve Williams and Chris Eccles both won a bottle of wine in the raffle. Alison Williams managed to get a score both in the morning and in the afternoon sessions! Ok so it was only 1 arrow in the afternoon but at least it scored 3!

5th Yorkshire Clout Weekend

Day 1

Better weather today at the clout at Driffield. Alison actually got a score today! Well done to Katrina Horton, 1st Lady Longbow and Chris Eccles, 3rd Gent Longbow. 

Chris Eccles also split the flag pole on the first scoring end, but it wasn’t enough to take best clout.

Yorkshire Spring Clout

Great to be back at clout today at York, meeting up with old friends. A very challenging headwind made it quite difficult, especially for Alison as none of her arrows reached the scoring zone, but Katrina came away with a nice bit of bling as 2nd Lady Longbow.

Thank you to York Archers for putting on the event and the very welcoming, super tasty chill and tacos that was put on for lunch

Eagle Bowmen Weekend of Clout

Day 2

Typical Penrith weather again. The forecast said moderate breeze from over right shoulder – no it wasn’t, it was a light headwind in the morning. Until walking back from about the 4th end Alison realised that the wind had gone round 180 degrees and was now from behind us! The forecast earlier in the week had said we would be baking in 23+ degrees plus full sunshine but fortunately that was wrong too – it was comfortable at about 19 deg and cloudy until the sun came out at the end of the presentations.
No bling today but Alison did manage to skewer the flag again – at least this time it was on a scoring end, not sighters!
The whole weekend was great fun and it was lovely to see old friends again.
