ETTRICK Forest Archers kick-started their 2012 campaign on Sunday with the first club clout shoot of the season.

Scoring was very high for so early in the year – yet still incredibly close.

Mike Pearson took the overall win for the gents with a superb 38 hits and a score of 93, including one clout.

Tony Meldrum was the top scorer in the first half, while Alan Lindsay top-marked the second, and Jim Craig was top clout scorer of the afternoon with two.

Jim’s wife Ev ploughed a lonely furrow on the 120-yard ladies’ clout, but did not let the solitude stop her hitting a worthy 81 from 42 hits.

Results: Gents double clout round: 1, Mike Pearson 38, 93, 1; 2, Tony Meldrum 36, 91, 1; 3, Martin Stillie 35, 82, 0; 4, Alan Lindsay 29, 81, 1; 5, Doug Anderson 26, 72, 1; 6, Kevin Janiak 33, 64, 0; 7, Jim Craig 27, 63, 2; 8, Frank Brown 15, 32, 0.
