THE WAND AND CLOUT
This Wand is rather unique to Mole Valley Bowmen, with the standard boss being replaced with a foam target measuring 6 foot by 4 inches, at ranges of 100 yards for gentlemen, 80 yards for ladies and 60 yards or closer for the various junior age groups.
The tournament is split into two classes - longbow and everything else. However we do exclude compound bows.
The Wand Shoot has grown in popularity over the years, attracting up to 100 archers, many in medieval dress (they can be seen below!).
Since 2016 the shoot has included a non-record status Clout in the morning. Archers new to a clout have the opportunity to receive instruction before shooting commences.
The shoot is held at Therfield School. A map of the location can be found here.
Following the success of last year, we will be continuing the Wand and Clout format this year. The 2017 entry form is available to download here.
The results can be downloaded below:
Yvette, Jenny and Catherine getting into the spirit!
