Sway Bowmen White Rose Trophy 2019

White RoseTrophy and Gold medallists presented to Dave Edmondson and Yvonne John, by Ophelia ClarkeOn Sunday 7th July Sway Bowmen held their annual White Rose Tournament. This tournament for many years was held in the grounds of the White Rose Hotel in Sway village on the Sunday of the Sway Village Carnival week. As it was shot in the gardens it was necessarily a short distance round, so a Portsmouth round of 5 dozen arrows at 20 yards on to a 60cm target face was used.  When the White Rose changed hands some years ago now the shoot was moved to our archery field just outside the village.

This year 33 archers took part in good weather conditions. Medals were awarded to the top scorers in each category and the White Rose Trophy itself is contested by mixed pairs drawn on the day and posting the highest combined score.  Our thanks go to our Judge of the day Karen Fountaine and to our our hardworking tournament organiser Jem Mason.
