9th November 2014. Abbey Bowmen’s 6th ‘Enticingly Difficult’ Wand Shoot.

Harry Potter aside, a “Wand” is an upright wooden pole stuck in the ground at a considerable distance (120 or 140 yards) from the archers. It has a ring around the base and arrows falling within the ring score. Arrows actually hitting the wand score extra.

A few of our members went along to this one to give it a try, and we did surprisingly well. In the gent’s recurve 140 yard wand Andrew Cox came first, Jack Corps second, and Mike¬†Wright was only pipped at the post for third, coming fourth overall.

Photos were taken, see below, and here’s the results:¬†Results2014
