The Isle of Wight Special
Open Tournament Weekend

On the 26th and 27th of September 2009, The Wight Company of Field Archers held a 2 day 'Special' open Tournament, set in the beautiful Isle of Wight Countryside

Day 1 Consisted of some hard fought Field Archery
After the shooting in the woods near Brading, tournament goers were given the opportunity to try their hands at SPTA (Society for the Promotion of Traditional Archery) style events, including Popinjay, Speed and Barrel Shooting

Other events laid on by the Wight Company also included Knife, Axe and Tomahawk Throwing followed by a fabulous fire show presented by a local extreme performance group


Day 2
Continued with more SPTA events and an awesome Bow Hunting Course set on the grounds of Roebeck Camping where archers had the opportunity to sleep in Sioux Style, tipis were available to hire over the whole weekend

By all accounts a great weekend was had by all - which probably means we will do something similar next year :)

Below are the results
