So we loaded the car on Sunday morning for the drive up the motorway to the Wolverine grounds, while still being slightly jet lagged from our Canadian ski holiday. Due to multiple sets of road works it would prove to be a slow drive north and equally slow drive home at the end of the day. You can read a write up of a previous shoot visit here.
This time there were some 105 archers making the trip and enjoying the shoot, a few less attendees than normal, though still a good turn out. Maybe a few had been put off by the prospect of road works. We were very fortunate to have a great group with Lynne and Mark from Centaura, Lynne shooting Barebow and Mark primitive. Though I have to say that at times we weren’t being overly serious.
Wolverine has got a bit of an unfair rep with some for having parking issues if its wet, which I feel is a little unfair as if you drive carefully you shouldn’t have any problems and there are always plenty of people willing to help if you get stuck.
The course on this occasion would comprise of 36 target comprising a mix of paper and 3D faces, with more 3Ds than paper faces.

I think the laughing round and good humour must have works as we all four of us came away with medals, with 3 first places Sharon, Lynne and myself with Mark getting a second.
Thanks for reading.
