BOWMEN and women from across the country will head to Thirladean this weekend for the Ettrick Forest Archers open target and clout competitions.

Saturday sees a Western target event, while the double clout round will take place on Sunday, both kicking off at 11am.

Last weekend, the club held a come and try event as part of Traquair’s Shakespeare Festival, yet another successful outing which saw them introduce more people to longbow shooting.
