As we usually do during the summer season, we will be having a series of monthly clout shoots with barbecue. It will be the next-to-last Tuesday each month, with a 5:30pm start. For those who haven’t done one before, a clout is aimed at a small flag placed in the ground at long distance and you score depending how close you get. The rugby field isn’t long enough to do a full-distance clout, which is up to 180 yards, so we do one at 100 yards. Most people should be able to reach that far, even with lightweight bows. It does mean aiming high up, but that’s part of the fun. This is an informal series and not intended to be anything serious, but there are awards to be had for the best scores of the season, which we normally hand out at our Christmas shoot.
A barbecue will be lit at the same time, so if you would like to join in then bring something to cook.
If you would prefer to shoot at a normal target then you will be perfectly welcome. We can do both at the same time.
That gives an opportunity to try again the following week if the weather is bad.
