SWAC Clout

On Saturday 15th October, SWAC invited Bitton Archers to compete in a Head to Head clout competition at Farrington Golf Club. Despite rain during setup we were treated to sunshine throughout the morning, but with a stiff head wind to keep us honest. A couple of sighter ends saw everyone try to get the distance, 140yds for the ladies and 160yds (the rough was a bit too close this year) for the men. Competition commenced for the 6 end round. All bow types were in evidence, compound, recurve, barebow and longbow.

Afterwards everyone met for a beer and a bite to eat in the club house, where the presentations were made for each bow type and the overall winner. The medals were presented by our previous SWAC Chairman Jim Linfield. Overall the honours went to Bitton Archers with an average score per archer of 24.25, beating SWACs average of 23.40. Congratulations to our friends at Bitton, we hope to see you again next year.
