Fun Shoot 2006

The Sway Bowmen annual Fun Shoot was held on Saturday 22nd July. In spite of a thunderstorm and rain that continued almost up to the starting whistle, members of Sway Bowmen and their friends managed to enjoy a wondeful and dry afternoon of archery that did not conform in the least to GNAS rules, or indeed to the rules of any known archery society. Alix won the Fun Shoot seniors' prize, while Olivia won the Juniors' prize. David did a superb job as Field Captain - he was called upon to adjudicate on several 'near' misses and 'line cutters' - a role that taxed to the utmost his "you're havin a laugh aren't you?" style of diplomacy. During the afternoon, Geoff and Shirley stoked the BBQ so that the ravenous competitors found hot dogs and burgers ready for eating when they'd finished the shoot. As they say: "a good day was had by all".

Sway Manor Shoot 2006

There were 22 people who shot at Sway Manor this year on a very hot day. The numbers worked out well with 11 of our experienced archers and 11 new members. Names were drawn and each experienced archer was paired with a new member.

Daniel and Tipper were this years winners. Our President Shirley Gulliver presented them with the trophy.

Many thatks to everyone who helped with all the equipment.
