All loaded up and ready to go on the Saturday, I just had the simple job of picking up Malc, Boggy Marsh and Alan B on route and Sunday’s fun could begin.
A Lone Wolf, Going it Alone
Along with my band of Merry Men. I bring you juicy tidbit tidings from the club of Castle Moat and Folkestone Bowmen

Further to Sunday's shoot from the tower, an onlooker was overheard offering this top tip:
"If Castle Moat and Folkestone Longbowers (stick chuckers) are defending a castle you are attacking, wear a multicoloured, circular-patterned hat with the predominent colours being gold, red and blue. Avoid black and white as they sometimes hit this colour, but on no account wear green as this will be fatal."

As organiser I was growing more and more concerned as the tournament drew near that there would not be enough people taking part. The uptake from outside clubs had been incredibly slow (only two entries at the time of the committee meeting a couple of weeks before).

So by all accounts Castle Moat's Open Tournament was a success. I wouldn't know as me and the Merry Men were hiding out behind the barbeque trying to score some bacon sarnies. It would have worked too had Friar 'Belly Buster' Tuck not decided to get in there first, leaving us only a few crumbs and the greasy waft of a used griddle.
