2018 is the 30th anniversary of the formation of Sway Bowmen and we were delighted to welcome 64 archers from 11 Archery Clubs across Dorset and Hampshire to our 30th annual Mushroom Shoot on 19th of August.
The weather was kind to us with sunshine and very little wind for the Western Rounds shot. These were the Long Western at 80 and 60 yards, the Western at 60 and 40 yards, the Short Western at 50 and 40 yards, the Junior Western at 40 and 30 yards, and the Junior Short Western at 30 yards and 20 yards. 4 dozen arrows were shot at each distance.
Sway Bowmen would like to thank our Lady Paramount for the day Hannah Mitchell, our Judge Richard Hillier and our Field Captain Roger Lee for their help with the running of this popular shoot. Also our thanks must go to all the archers whose support always makes the day so enjoyable. Finally the Club`s thanks go to Jem Mason, our Tournamount Organiser
for his hard work and smooth running of this annual shoot.
