Tri-Clout Weekend

Tri-Clout  -  What is it ???

Well it's the only 3 day archery tournament that holds all 3 types of clout rounds, with each one having tassel and record status titles. It's held at Neston Company of Archers ground at Neston on the Wirral. It's a great chance for archers to try their skills at clout and also a good stepping stone towards their clout ranking (more details about the rankings for clout can be found on the Northern Counties Archery Society website).

Saturday features the 2 way double clout, Sunday is a one way double clout, which also hosts the Cheshire County and Open Championships, as well as the English Archery Federation  clout championships.

Then on Monday it's the FITA and Metric clouts, so there's lots to aim for - 6 national records, 3 possible tassel badge claims and of course 2 separate 6 clout end badges.

If any juniors enter the JAWS award scheme, then there's a bag full of points to be gained as well.

Neston allows on-site camping and the night time entertainment is something to be remembered (if you can).

Medals and trophies are awarded throughout the event, with some very nice trophies up for grabs in the supreme archers award category. This award is available to any archer shooting all 3 days using the same bow type on all 3 days, be it recurve, barebow, longbow or compound. There are awards for both seniors and juniors.

So why not bring the family and have a great long weekend. There are lots of local places of interest to visit (and shopping) for those who do not shoot and if you are not into camping there are plenty of B & B's nearby.

Further details and the entry forms are available on the Cheshire Archery Assocation website. For further details please contact the tournament organiser Peter Gregory on 0161 351 0013 or email

X MARKS THE SPOT

Another first took place at the Tri Clout weekend, August bank holiday at Neston, not only did we hold the very first record status and tassel shoot run by traffic lights but a trial run was held using an X as part of the scoring.


I thought I’d trail this as an experiment to help decide a tie, with the ever increasing skills amongst our clout archers and increasing scores, sooner or later the score for a WA/Metric clout will be near maximum on a regular basis, the score sheets included an X this was made clear at assembly that it still counts as a five (not a 10 or a 6 ha ha).

This also meant that a sixth colour sergeant was needed, there is plenty of room to fit two people within a 1.5 meter zone, everyone I spoke to on the day agreed that it was a great idea and we should run this way in the future.


I have emailed archery GB to inform them of my idea and told them I would be trailing it and asked them for some feedback but like with most things regarding clout it’s always watch this space and don’t hold your breath.


So can I please ask tournament organisers to continue with the X’s and get this established, if you want a copy of a score sheet please feel free to use the one on Goldcrest Archers Website....http://goldcrestarchers.co.uk/achievements

Keep up the good shooting yes

Horn Trophys

I first came across these stags horns whilst walking in Lyme Park. They were just lay in the grass waiting for me to pick them up. I took them home and put them in a cupboard, there they stayed for around 6 years. Geoff Trimble from Wirral archers asked me at the Cheshire clout Champs in 2010 if there was any chance I could arrange a trophy for a longbow team – Guess WHAT? Yes I can I told him. So over the winter time I set about a design and got on with it. 7 pieces of Oak make up the stand which I shaped and grooved to take the shape of the horns, 6 coats of varnish and loads of name plates make this a trophy Worth shooting for, because they are a pair I thought I’d use one for the Cheshire FITA clout in May and the other for the Cheshire Imperial clout in August which is part of the Tri-Clout weekend, any Longbow team can enter , May 2011 winners went to Kettering archers, Dave Burnett and Russ Chicken Chops Duffin and they also won the other in August, well-done to them both for a great score, the trophies are up for grabs once again this year 2012, but looking at the Photos would you like to challenge them ?? I am sure if your team shot well and beat them they would kindly hand them over, but don’t bet on it. They are fine Bowmen!!
If you fancy your chances and can put together a team then come along and have a great day, entry forms are on the Cheshire website

Shoot Well and Enjoy the Sport.
