Flodden Marks

A fantastic days shooting at The Flodden Marks today. Shooting with friends old and new and with perfect weather. An excellent turnout from The Longbow Club, with Sue and Pete Price, Josh McLaren, Sarah and Colin Cavanagh, Abbey and Ben Cavanagh, Katrina Horton and Chris Eccles.
Congratulations to Ben Cavanagh 1st Junior Longbow and to Katrina Horton, 1st Lady Longbow.
A great big thank you to Rebecca and Jason Stokes and The Flodden Crew for an superb day, a very challenging rove and free cake!

Unbelievable Rove…

A great day roving at Poulton Hall with lovely company. The thick fog didn’t help much, especially at the pond where Alison decided she was going to ‘Kill the pond’, which she did in true Longbow style.

The thick fog and the eerie quietness made for an unbelievable end of year Rove.

3rd Poulton Hall Rove

A brilliant time at the Longbow Club’s Rove at Poulton Hall. Great to see old friends after such a long time. Thanks to Chris Eccles and Pete Price for laying out such a great course and to everyone who helped to make it such a wonderful day!

Just a short note to thank you and all your ‘team’ for organising such a great day.  Vic and I were really pleased to have taken part and look forward to hearing about the ones you hope to organise next year.  We returned to our hotel, tired but happy- once again, thanks for a really great day.

Thank you again for all yours and the teams efforts. I would say it was a resounding success and Karen and I look forward to your next one

Wow! Best. Day’s. Rove. Evar!

Thanks Chris and to all the team, it was a great day. Very entertaining and challenging, well managed, and fun. Thanks again- Andy

Thank you for an excellent day Roving, great course and great organisation. It was so nice to finally get a few arrows away and spend the day with you all

Many thanks for this. It was a super day out and I’m looking forward to your next Rove. Hopefully by then I will be able to pull a few more pounds.

I am disappointed I wasn’t able to shoot this afternoon but nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed the morning shoot. Thank you to you, Katrina and all your colleagues for an excellent day’s shooting. I look forward to news of your event in February. 

An awesome gathering of likeminded friends today – was fantastic to see everyone together again! Thank you to everyone for organising a brilliant shoot.

A fantastic turnout not only for the Flodden Marks, but also for The Longbow Club. Represented by Sarah, Colin and Ben Cavanagh, Sue and Pete Price, Josh MacLaren, Katrina Horton and Chris Eccles.

The weather was reasonable and the 14 Marks, quite challenging. Congratulations to Sue Price, the overall victor, collecting the Sword of Flodden. Sue was also the winner of the Lightweight Bow Class with Josh coming second and Katrina third. Ben Cavanagh was the winner in the Ultra Light Bow class 

A huge thank you to Jason and his team for a fabulous day.
