Raven Field Archers held their annual Open Shoot last weekend at their new ground at Langrish near Petersfield.

The new course is set in a picturesque valley and is very different from the old course. Most of the shots were on slopes and Jim's team had worked very hard cutting steps and providing ropes to assist getting between the targets. Everyone I spoke to thought it was an excellent course and rated it hard to difficult.

Congratulations to everyone at Ravens.
