Poulton Hall Spring Rove

A brilliant day roving with the Longbow Club. A bit chilly in the morning but the sun eventually came out and everyone had a great time. Delicious cakes from Nina, super soup from Sarah and flapjacks from Alison. Thank you to everyone that attended and to the members of The Longbow Club for all the effort to put on such a great day.

…a well organised Rove as always – well done everyone

…another enjoyable event, very well organised as usual. Thanks!

…I am just grateful for you all putting on the event and the very welcome homemade soups and cakes. You all deserve a pat on the back. I think we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

…First rove I’ve ever topped the list so pretty chuffed.

…A very big thank you to you and your colleagues for arranging an excellent and enjoyable Rove yesterday. Look forward to the next one.

…Thanks for an excellent day out today.  Looking forward to your next shoot.

…just to say thank you for the shoot today. It was great fun, despite the glue failue on my arrow points

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.

Flodden Marks

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.
