Ledbury Archery Club

Target and Clout archery for all

Invasion!

Leave a comment

Once again the clubs valiant archers were called upon to defend their green and pleasant land from rather unsavoury characters from somewhere across the channel. A sneering king had brought his royal court, including his Jester, to the fields of Putley and it was our task to do battle and vanquish the enemy horde.

Of course the balmy summer weather aided the defenders admirably and with bells ringing in our ears, the Timed Target Shoot (under the watchful eye of our Field Captains and Organisers; Gordon, Geoff, and Andy) commenced.

Within a couple of hours, the foes had all been vanquished, tea quaffed, arrows found and peace and serenity had returned. Excellent performances were achieved by all archers, but of particular note were those who went above and beyond in cutting down the opposition: Graham B & Mark B using Longbows, Chris B with his trusty Recurve and Dave Q with his Barebow, even the Jester was not spared and was duly despatched in fine style by Lyndon.

Very many thanks to the organisers for this weekends fun shoot (and donated prizes) and we will keep our fingers crossed that this can become an annual event.

As everyone thought this was a relatively straightforward and easy shoot (tongue firmly in cheek!), our next organised shoot on the 28th September will be a bit more challenging – “The Wand”….
