On Sunday August 20th we held the Mushroom Shoot 2023, our largest tournament of the year and the 33rd time it has taken single mushroomplace. As an open shoot we were pleased to welcome archers from ten different clubs across Hampshire and neighboring counties. The full range of age and ability, we had new archers enjoying their first tournament experience, some new guests from other clubs and some die hard Mushroom Shoot addicts we love to see every year.

The weather was glorious, even for a summer shoot and the catering team and Tombola crew kept us entertained and fed. A superb day, with lots of prizes being won and some new names to be engraved on the trophies.

Full results of the shoot can be found here and some stunning images from the day are in the gallery here.

We were grateful to our officials for bringing glitz, glamour and good order to the event. Alison Innes (Bournemouth Archery Club) our Lady Paramount, Phil Collins (Waterside Archers) our Judge and Ian Mason (Sway Bowmen) our Field Captain, and to all the members and guest archers who contributed to make it such a great day. 

We look forward to seeing you all again on Sun 18th August 2024 for the 34th Mushroom Shoot.
