A brief update with the May results and names for the June draw.
Congratulations to WAC OnTarget team of Sammie James, Andy Hopkins, James Woodgate and Roy Watts who narrowly missed out by just one point on a victory over CMO on Sunday.
A particular well done to James and Andy for winning all of the recurve matches and to Sammie for great shooting, the first time she has shot anywhere other than Woking!
Roy and Sammie pushed the “giggle factor” up to an impressive 8 out of 10 assessment and the team wishes to extend its thanks to CMO for putting on a great spread and for providing excellent hospitality.
Next year eh?!
It was a glorious day for the Surrey Longbow Shoot that was held at Woking AC club on Saturday.
Thank you to all at WAC who worked hard to lay on a great event and to all the archers from around the county (and beyond) that took part!
Congratulations to Candy Schofield for her award of a Silver Plaquette presented at the ArcheryGB AGM in recognition of her work with the Archery GB event team, particularly at the 2016 European Championship at Nottingham.
A huge WAC well done to Chris Woodgate who is this year’s BUCS Indoor Gent Compound Champion.
Finishing second in the Fita 18 qualifying round with 572, Chris won his first round H2H match with 145pts to set up a semi-final with the number 3 seed (who went onto win Bronze). Another 145pt score saw Chris safely into the Gold medal match which he secured with a consistent 144pts to win by 3pts.
Overall his Warwick Uni compound team were second out of eight UK teams from as far afield as Edinburgh to Portsmouth and Aberystwyth to Kent!
