A brilliant day at the Cheshire Metric Clout. A great turnout for The Longbow Club, probably our biggest team ever – Katrina Horton, Chris Eccles, Steve and Alison Willaims, Graham and Dylan Higgs, Jason and Gabe Powell, Ian Stowell, Phil Wain, Keith Ledson, Jason Lynch and Mike O’Sullivan.
Gabe and Dylan both won 1st place for Junior Longbow at their distances; Katrina was 3rd Lady Longbow; Ian was 2nd Gent Longbow; Chris was 3rd Gent Longbow; Jason Powell got his Red Tassel; Gabe got his Black Tassel; Jason Lynch got his Black Tassle, his first ever tassel; Keith, in his 1st clout, was just a few points off his 1st Tassel and Phil got a PB.
Katrina and Alison both shot GMB scores which was fantastic as it meant we just retained the Longbow Team Award. It was very close, especially as Tracy Cross-Hargreaves from Goldcrest Archers smashed the Cheshire County record with a score only 4 or 5 off the UK National Record! Just shows how strong longbow archery is in Cheshire!
