Shoot the Marks

Poulton Hall – Autumn Rove

A fantastic day at Poulton Hall for The Longbow Clubs’ Autumn Rove.

The weather was forecast rain until lunchtime, then brighten up, but then a downpour around 3pm. However, we got some drizzle in the morning as we assembled but then it cleared and the sun came out and it stayed dry all day.

Thank you to the members for all their help and support in making the day so enjoyable. Thank you to Alison for the flapjacks and to Katrina for the cakes.

But the biggest thank you is to all the archers who attended. without you, this event events would not be possible.

Sandringham Rove

What a fabulous day at Royal Sandringham. Thanks to Pip Bickerstaffe and the Shire Bowmen for making it so much fun.

We started of with the Shire Bowmen doing what looked like the March of the Archers. Sorry I only took stills, wish I had turned the camera to video.

Congratulations to Katrina Horton who came 1st in the Light Bow category.

Thank you also to the ‘Thumb Ring Archers’ for demonstrating their style of shooting. 

Flodden Marks
