Just thought I’d show off some of the trophy’s I’ve won over the years.
Not enough room on the shelf…so Mick is putting up another. (Yeah! Yeah! You know what they say about ‘if you’ve got it-flaunt it!’)
Lft. Colonel Jack Churchill’s Longbow. Used in WW11 which we took to the Antiques Roadshow.

Mick’s Car !
Although absolutely nothing to do with archery…I had to put up some photo’s of Mick’s single seat road (NOT a racing) car that he has just finished making.
He started it about 10 years ago, but due to bowel cancer (now in remission); a new hip; a broken tendon in his left foot and weeks in hospital with pneumonia and blood-clots; its been a long time in the making.
He has made all of it including the moulds for the bodywork. The frame; the wishbones (whatever they are!); And all the stuff that needed welding; plus most of the wiring which he hated doing!
Now, although still on crutches most of the time, He’s building a Trike and wants to build a Tiger Moth airplane. So for his 80th Birthday I got him flying lessons!
To say I’m a proud wifey is an understatement!!
SMUG I think !!!
I thought I’d get a few more colours in the Dacron B50 that I use for making strings.
Before you ask…I don’t make strings out of Fast-Flight’ or any related material!
I don’t like what it does to the wooden bows
Dacron B50. The larger yellowy spool is actually VERY bright orange.
Well…tried out the Gorilla epoxy with the piles…seems to work fine, so now an official stockist!
I thought I’d get the super glue gel as well as get asked for it.
Got soooo wet a couple of weeks ago I decided enough was enough and bought a marquee to shoot from.
Might have to use a brolly to collect your arrows…but I’ll be in the dry while you do so!!!
