The Society hosts an annual Summer Tournament on our ground near Droitwich, on one of the middle Sundays in June. The round shot is an Albion, with Windsors for the Juniors and a ‘Burntwood’ Albion for visually impaired archers. The tournament is UK Record Status and part of the West Midlands Summer League.
All types of bow are welcome: the shoot attracts a good field of longbow archers, encouraged by the magnificent St. Hubert’s Trophy donated by Patti & Dave Vukomanovic at the inaugural event. From 2005 the event will feature an equally desirable trophy for the junior longbow winner, donated by Alex Pattison.
The Society aim to strike a balance between running a serious shoot for the experienced archer whilst maintaining relaxed atmosphere that will not put off the novice or first-time tournament-goer. From the feedback received to date it would seem as though this has been achieved.
There are the excellent facilities of the Droitwich Rugby Football Club’s clubhouse. This includes the bar, which is open all afternoon, and the restaurant, which will be serving hot food (e.g. burgers and pork rolls) until mid-afternoon.
