Club Longbow champs

A good turnout of 8 archers took part in the club longbow shoot on 19th June 2022.

As usual a Western round was shot. The scoring zone was hit plenty of time as were the ground, the legs of the target stand and once of twice the wooden winder for the target ropes. After the 8 dozen arrows the results were:

1st place with a score of 381 and the club Longbow champion for the second time – Mark Martin

2nd Barry with 328

3rd Tim with 306

4th Dave 386, 5th John B 228, 6th Steve 176, 7th Neil 168 and 8th Mel 137.

Good fun was had by all that took part. Come and join us for the next club tournament.
