Club Champs 15th October 2017
A warm, dry day at Knighton.  We welcomed two new members shooting for the first time with us plus a mainland visitor who we hope will join us when he retires to the Island.  We did things a little differently this time - two rounds in the morning from different pegs, shooting at 10 targets (3 multiple shots) with big game scoring and a third round with bowhunter scoring in the afternoon (single shot at each target).

Woodmans Trophy shoot 24th September 2017
A somewhat smaller turnout than usual - however those attending got their heads around the different scoring of the Woodmans round and tackled the longer shots as well as some smaller (but still very tricky placement) targets.

Bluebell Trophy 7th May 2017
Possibly a little past their best but still thousands of beautiful bluebells (and a few white ones) in the wood today.  Bright and dry with the sun occasionally showing its face made for a very pleasant clamber around the woods  Shooting with old friends and new (welcome Dave) plus a guest appearance by Garfield, an accomplished mainland archer whose stop score won him the right to have his name on our lovely Bluebell Trophy.

Bowhunter Trophy Shoot 9th April 2017
An absolutely beautiful blue sky and plenty of bluebells awaited 9 members (including one returning member) for the annual Bowhunter Shoot.  Just the one arrow at each target this time with the opportunity to score 10 for a kill and 5 for a wound - no second chances (well apart from the second round!)   Thanks to John for devising some really challenging shots, including an owl perched high on a tree.

The Garys' Trophy Shoot 12th March 2017
A newly named shoot (as it was organised by our two Garys) at Brocks Copse.  Being very wet underfoot because of heavy rain this week and light rain for much of the day didn't deter eight hardy members from testing the course.  Big thanks to the Garys for planning and organising an excellent course, making good use of the varied terrain in the wood.
