Longbow Tournaments

The Company of the Belted Badger holds two tournaments during the course of the Games: St. George's Charge on Saturday, and the Scottish Clout Round on Sunday.

St. George's Charge is a shoot that has been a tradition in archery since the 16th century. Archers begin at a distance of 80 yards and move up ten yards per flight.

Scottish Clout is a traditional event where archers launch arrows at distances of up to 140 yards at targets drawn on the earth with a claymore sword in the middle.
