24th Lancashire Archery Double One Way Clout

A great day at the Blundellsands clout today with friends old and new.

The weather was not as windy as it usually is, and it was warm enough for shorts…..that is until just after the presentation as we were packing up, the heavens opened.

Congratulations to Katrina Horton 1st Lady Longbow and Longbow Team winner along with partner Chris Eccles.

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

Very difficult wind again with added hailstones! We had a wonderful time.
