Wolfshead Autumn Open Field Shoot

Thirteen Scarborough Archers booked places on Wolfshead’s Autumn shoot and we were made up to fourteen by a welcome visit from our old friend Sheffield John.

The day was unbelievably hot, especially on the open moorland section of the forty target course; we were glad to get into the woodland section for some shade.

A great course with a variety of interesting problems for the archers – Wolf Hill with three animals positioned on the steeply rising slope, a new crocodile shot downhill from a wasp peg, a goose in mid flight and our old favourite, the elephant in the broom.

Once again our younger archers did us proud. Adam, Dylan and Ben achieved gold medals in their bow styles. They must have an impressive collection of gold hanging on their walls at home. Of the big people Andy B. shot a good round and came away with a silver medal in the longbow class, with Kelly winning a bronze medal in AFB.

As usual the members of Wolfshead put on a great show, an imaginative and challenging course. Lots of food and and drink to suit all tastes; little wonder this shooting so popular with field archers.
