This year the round was an American, probably because the 4th July Independence Day was on the following day. Or maybe Warlingham were playing their Trump card (yes that was an attempt at a joke). An American round is 30 arrows at 60, 50 and 40 yards or two pints of Budweiser and a Manhattan if you're at a bar (another attempt, another fail).
CMO Bowmen hosted this three-way friendly match between us and Reigate Priory Bowmen as holders of the trophy which we won at Malden last year. With me so far? Unfortunately Malden found themselves a bit light of archers and so the three-way became two.
