Easter Monday Members Clout Shoot 2018

We're very pleased to be holding another members only Clout Shoot at the Blake End Ground on Easter Monday, 2nd April. Assembly 9am for a 9.30am start.


For those that haven’t shot or heard of a Clout before, this is where an archer aims and shoots at a flag on the ground known as “the clout” and at distances you will have not shot before. 
The Clout is a coloured flag on a wooden pole, only 50 cm or less from the ground. The scoring zones are circles positioned on the ground, surrounding the flag.

Gold: 5 points, Red: 4 points, Blue: 3 points, Black: 2 points, White: 1 point

Round:
The round consists of six ends of six arrows a total of 36 arrows.

Distance:
Senior Gents (18yrs above) 180yrds
Senior Ladies 140yrds
Juniors 80 or 100yrds

Bow Types:
All except for compound bows (sorry!), no sights, no clickers.

Depending on numbers we all shoot from the line at the same time, possibly with 2 details, and we all score and collect together. The Winner will be the person with the highest score after the 36 arrows.

So, fancy coming along to try something a bit different? There's no entry fee but to enter please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
