On 24th September we held the Club outdoor championships. In a change to the round format of previous years all archers shot a 'Double 720' round, using the Archery GB National Ranking distances as the preferred round. The field saw a good mix of archers from different categories and it was great to see some of our beginners taking on a 12 dozen round for the first time.
Trophies and medals were awarded to our category winners shooting the required qualifying distances, 70m Recurve and Longbow, 50m Barebow, 50m-80cm face Compound, Junior distances as per AGB age categories.
There were also prizes awarded on handicap for Seniors, Juniors, Mixed Pairs, Couples and Parent and Child. We also gave out colour prizes and best golds. For a full list of the results and medal winners click here.
Jem Mason and Jodie Green shared the Lord Patron and Lady Paramount duties, with the Lord Patron prize being awarded to Ian Elcock. Well done Ian for being willing to stretch yourself, shoot the full 70m and put in a very creditable score at your first club champs.
All round it was great to see the hard practice of the summer season paying off and to recognise some different names will be added to the trophies this year.
Thank you to Amanda, Carl, Tamsin and team for providing hot food and drinks. A great day. We look forward to next year. You can see some photos in the gallery here.
