The purpose of Archery is so great men and youth might
be stirred to labour, pastime and virtue,
to be plucked from idleness, unthrifty games and vice.
How honest a pastime for the mind,
how wholesome an exercise for the body,
not vile, not costly for poor men to sustain,
not lurking in holes and corners for ill men to misuse it,
but abiding in the open sight and face of the world.
Roger Ascham 1545
The Clout. Our Grand Master Bowman scored 5 x 5's and a 4 from 180 yards
Portsmouth round on the field
The Archers Pardox, see how much the arrow bends
The Shoot Whatever you Want round
Wand shoot, a 4'' post from 100 yards
Field Archery, good for getting close to nature, just mind the trees
The Worcester, only 5 arrows an end for this round
How many arrows will fit in the Gold ?
