110 archers set off in the rain to shoot our 40 target, themed, timeline course. At least this time the weather was right for the Agincourt targets! The course was a combination of our previous 100 Years War and Agincourt Shoots. Lost in France? Well the history of the 100 Years War shows that we English & Welsh & Cornish were a bit ‘lost’ by the end, having lost most of our continental possessions!
22 of the targets were Paul Summerfield’s wonderful medieval painted hessian faces, with a couple also by Mike Pruitt. There were also 16 x 3Ds. Story boards at the target number (except for 3Ds) gave brief details of the Date & Battle each target represented and in some cases the character on the target included the coat of arms of a particular knight who had been killed or captured in that Battle. A picture of the target showing the kill was included under the story board. The costumes that some wore all added to the flavour of the occasion, albeit they got a bit soggy! Thanks to Pat Vince for being our Lady P. Thank you all for coming to share the day with us. Yet again the whole SWAC Team did a great job, so many thanks to for all your hard work.
