This will be a return grudge match. Let's hope those chumps that dared to beat us will have the guts to come to Leongatha. Some rules will have to be changed to favour the righteous!

We will have around 10 3D targets as well and flying discs

I'm looking forward to this one. Cool

Mossvale Park would have to be the premium venue for battle clout.

Vengence will be sweet. Cool

Hi All,

If I turn up with about a dozen archers will they all need shields?

Mate, it would be great if you can bring that many and yes they will need target shields though Mick may have some spares ? I know Morgan picked up one at a garage sale the other day for $2.oo so you can get cheap boogie boards at times. Would be really great to see your guys at our comp and we will be having a closer starting line for ladies or juniors who can't make the 125m starting distance.

G'day Sven, the smallest boogie boards are about 50cm x 70 cm so I guess that is about as small you can go if making your own. Remember to make them so arrows will stick in em. Layers of cardboard work well.
Entry is $10.00 and there will be a 3D animal shoot in the afternoon and I'm hoping to get enough guys in armour to do a battle display over the lunch break.

Indeed we are strong. 50 plus strong in members and growing all the time. Just wait till we start more promotion. I am recording a sound track for the archery clip in 2 weeks time.

Lets use this as a chance to get some good footage of our big bows shooting and a chance to further our warbow technique, warbows to the line !

Len and Morgan

Just Curious, are there going to be any individual awards in the Battle Clout event or will it be strictly a team event? Not that it matters much to me anyway. Smile

It will be good to see the warbows getting a workout, even if it's only for a couple of rounds or so. Cool

Mick

Mick, as we are doing the 3d shoot we will be awarding a trophy to the winner of that event so battle clout will only be a team event but I think we might get an encouragment award organised for the top warbow archer in the battle clout Smile

I liked the way the owner of the 'best' shield was determined at the Yarra Bowmen Battleclout event. The owner of the best painted shield was decided by a 'show of arrows', whereby each competitor placed one arrow next to the shield they thought was the best. It was truly a fantastic way of doing it (Southern Fox's idea, I believe Wink ). To be chosen by your peers was a simple, foolproof and unbiased way of doing it.

If you're going to give any awards in the Battle Clout event, this method might be worthy of consideration perhaps.

Mick

Alrighty guys this is going to be a chance to get some good photos/video and i am going to try and organise the local paper to come to this one so lets get as many people in authentic 14th century kit as possible. If you have spares bring 'em! If you've got period armour, wear it!!
