Medieval Field Shoot – Poltimore House 2 Jul 17

Early on Sunday morning Friar Mike, Josh Hood, Little Harry and Sire Donald set forth for the Medieval Field Shoot at Poltimore House, Near Exeter.  Ok, well we all went in fancy dress as it saved a few groats on the entry fee (although we spent far more than that on the costumes).  As with all shoots there was a friendly relaxed atmosphere and everyone was impressed with the shields hanging from the rafters of the chapel; every single person taking part had their coat of arms on one of the shields.  This was an amazing idea and well done to the organisers who went to the effort of doing this.

it was a great day and that it was fun to take part, with a well thought out, interesting course and thanks to the organisers for making it such a great day.
























































































Mike won a Yew wood stave in the auction. The basis of a bow and some arrows, yet to be made.
