Spookey Shoot

On 28th October Sway Bowmen held their annual Halloween shoot. This very goulish and ghostly event was held at our Club field in Sway and was attended by 20 Club archers. Well done to all 20 as it was quite  a messy event this year with all sorts of coloured liquids etc squirting everywhere.

All the archers at this event are required to shoot barebow ie; no sights or other shooting aids. 

The senior prize went to Bob Hughes, the junior prize went to Polly Graham and the award for the best costumes went to Anthony and Leon Hausdoerfer. 

All those competing  said how much they enjoyed  this lighthearted shoot and many thanks must go to our Tournamount Officer Jem Mason for his hard work and creation of the multitde of grisly targets.

Sway Bowmen 30th Outdoor Championships

outdoor champs 2018Sway Bowmen recently held their 30th annual Club Outdoor Championships at our Club field in Sway. 36 archers took part this year on a breezy but dry day. It was good to see a number of new archers taking part having joined the Club earlier this year. There was also a very good turnout of Junior archers all producing good scores in what was for most of them their first competition.

The rounds shot were St George, Albion, Windsor, Short Windsor and Junior Windsor, with 3 dozen arrows at each of 3 distances from 100 yards to 20 yards, totaling 9 dozen arrows for each archer. A good cross section of distances to give all archers including Juniors a good chance.

Our Lord Patron this year was club member Adrian Jones, Karen Fountaine was our Judge and Field Captain and the event was superbly organised and run by Jem Mason. The Club thanks them all for their hard work.

The main results;

Ladies recurve, First, Karen Fountaine with 564 points. Second, Yvonne John with 471 points. Third, Jaymi Vine with 428 points.
