Saturday 2nd September: No Shooting

Please note that there will NOT be a supervised shooting session on Saturday morning, 2nd September. Juniors can only shoot if accompanied by a shooting adult who is an established member of the Club. This is to allow the Club to prepare for the Field Shoot on Saturday afternoon.

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".
