2009 Cheshire FITA Clout Shoot

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Cheshire is the very Heartland of Clout archery, and their County May Day Bank Holiday FITA Clout was the first ever FITA Tassel Award shoot, and so was also their largest-ever shoot with entry numbers approaching the size of the Nationals.

Liz Bowyer, Jon Stafford and Russ French showed their National Recurve Clout Team win last October wasn’t a flash in the pan by beating last year’s Cheshire FITA champions Stalybridge by one point to take the Team award home with an aggregate score of 900.  Jon was also the highest scoring recurve Gent with new Sussex County Single and Double Round scores, and Liz was First Visitor and Third Lady Recurve overall, with a new Sussex Double Round record score.

It was very cold and gloomy with a strong wind and occasional rain – hence Liz’s wet-weather gear in the picture below – if you look carefully you can see her arrow heading down-range.
