2019 Linecutter Trophy

2019 linecutterSunday 5th May saw Sway Bowmen start their outdoor competition season with their Line Cutter Shoot. Traditionally held on the first Sunday of May each year. 21 archers took part this year shooting a Metric IV round of  three dozen arrows at 40 mtrs followed by 3 dozen at 30 mtrs. Outright scores are not counted for this trophy, it is purely the highest number of arrows cutting the various lines separating the coloured bands of the target face that count.

The winner this year was Alan Barratt shooting a recurve bow with 17 `Line Cutters`. During this Metric IV round three new Club records were broken by Heather Tarbard ladies compound bow, Bob Hughes gents bare bow, and Bertie Mason junior gents recurve bow. Well done to the Line Cutter Trophy winner Alan Barratt and the three new Club record Holders.
