This season Louisa was determined to have fun by making sure that she shot at all the great local Junior tournaments that we have on offer in the area. Her plan kicked off with a visit to “The Lintman” which, along with “The Little Acorn”, was one of the first tournaments she ever took part in. Non-RS, is it an excellent beginner’s tournament with “Colour Spot Prizes” i.e. circles in each of the coloured rings which align with chocolate prizes (none of which Louisa won) and a “Best Gold” and “Worst White” spot prize too (neither of which she won either).
Louisa was though fortunate enough to win Top Junior Lady with a SJ Western score of 832. Please do put it on your calendar for next year and see if you can win more chocolate than Louisa – Andrew Seale did as well as winning the U16 Gents Western class!
Earlier in the month Louisa ventured a little further afield to compete in the Bowmen of Glen (Leicester) RS Rose Tournament on 10th May. Shooting 1228 on a Bristol 4 she claimed the Surrey County Record that has stood for 32 years!
And finally, at the Middlesex on BH Monday, she shot this 3 arrow end at 10m on her way to a Metric 4 Club Record of 1314!
