Of Pictures and Stories

In the times before The Wight Company of Field Archers came along there have been many occasions when the Field form of Archery has been tried.

Below are the pictures of one such time when a chap called Pip Bickerstaffe came over to the Island, held a seminar and helped enlighten many Islanders that we didn't just have to shoot at round targets of straw and paper from the same distance - all of a sudden targets varied in shape, size and texture, distances changed with almost every shot and technology gave way to instinct -

How many archers does it take to change a light bulb?
It takes a ROVING eye to see the arrow - get it?

This event couldn't have happened without the careful planning and preparation
of several members of the West Wight Archery Club - our thanks go to you.
