Halloween Shoot 2006

In spite of dire predictions of horrendous weather, twenty three archers turned up at the Club grounds on Saturday 28th October for the Club's Halloween / Samhain shoot. Luckily the rain held back as the archers braved the task of clearing the field of ghouls and ghosts (in the shape of specially painted targets) for the winter. It was a hard shoot in which being careful to avoid some parts of the target was just as important as hitting the 'kill' zones. Everyone shot barebow, so it was perhaps not surprising that William came tops with a score of 102. Not to be outdone, Jamie tried to equal Will's score, but in negative numbers. With a score of -73 he wasn't far off. The shoot concluded with the shooting of fire arrows to light a small bonfire. Due to the organiser's overcautiousness the fire arrows were not as spectacular as might have been (and the bonfire needed much coaxing before getting going) - so this is something that will be better next year. The evening was rounded off with snacks, toasted marshmallows and mulled 'wine'.
