Clout Shoot Saturday 27th August – 9:00 to 12:30

Gipping Valley Archers is pleased to announce we will be running our second Clout Shoot of the year (so far!).

The location is: The Chalk Pit Little Blakenham IP8 4LX. Other forms of location finders are - What3Words  or Google maps: . There is off road parking on site and there will be a porta loo available.

There will be an "assembly" (range briefing and shooting rules) at 9:30am – please be on time as you must attend the briefing to be able to shoot. This will be followed by an end of 6 sighters. The Clout will then start at 10:00 sharp and last up to 2½ hours.

There is a useful introduction to clout guide on our website and available here at

This time we will have three distances, Men’s flag 180 yards, Ladies and over 12 years 140 yards and 80 yards for under 12.

Arrow marking is recommended so you can identify yours. We will be shooting six per end. Best marked with your initials, these could be on a strip of paper sellotaped round the shaft near the fletching. Or a piece of insulation tape with your initials marked on. Or directly on the shaft or fletching with a sharpie or felt pen if you wish. Also, you may wish to use your old arrows rather than your best target arrows!

There will be NO refreshments available so please bring your own.

If you are new to the club and don’t yet have your own equipment, we can arrange to have the club bow and arrows you have been using available. But please tell us you intend to participate no later than 5pm Thursday 25th August.

Any questions please get in touch.
