LONG Buckby Archery Club recently hosted 70 county archers in a three-way contest.

The event was held at Daventry Rugby ground.

On a hot and sunny day archers shot a Hereford round of 12 dozen arrows with distances starting from 80 yards.

All the usual types of bows were in use ranging from Compound to Recurve and Longbows.

After the contest participants tucked in to a buffet while the results were being calculated.

At the end of the day honours were about even with each county team presented with a trophy in one or more categories.
