Thanks also to those that make these events happen.
Not only did we have Archers shooting we had Steve Vallis judging for the weekend. As if this wasn’t enough both Mark Preston and Candy Schofield were there from early Friday with a number of other volunteers getting things prepared and until long after the Archery had finished on Sunday clearing the venue. So thank you to all the volunteers for all the hard work that makes our shoots possible.

The AGB Summer Metrics are out and thanks must first go to Louise Davies (Records Officer) for ensuring that nine WAC juniors’ entries were represented in the lists:

1st place: Louisa Piper (U12 Girl Recurve) and Alex Davies (U12 Girl Longbow)

2nd place: James Woodgate (U14 Boy Longbow), Dan Embury (U12 Boy Compound), Eleanor Piper (U16 Girl Recurve)

In addition Alex Davies was also 4th U12 Girl Recurve, Sam Davies (in what I think was his first national competition, so a special well done to him!) was 8th U10 Boy Recurve and out of whopping entry of 47 U14 Boy Recurve archers, James Woodgate was 9th and, out of an even bigger field of 53 U16 Boy Recurve archers, Andrew Searle was 22nd!

Congratulations on behalf of the whole club to every one of them on their brilliant results!

WAC Clout – 16th Nov

A promising day, with no rain, greeted us on Sunday. Unfortunately, with the ground being rather water logged,  we had to restrict the distances. The younger Juniors shot from 80yds. Older Juniors shot from 120 yds. Ladies from 140 yds & Gents at 180 yds.

The rain held off all day. The ground was very squelchy but we all had a great day. All the 26 members that attended, scored! What a result!  Well done everyone. Thanks very much also to Harvey for being field captain & scorer.

And the results:

Overall Men’s – Chris Mott – 46 points
Overall Women’s – Eleanor Piper – 50 points
Overall Junior Girl – Manon Bristow – 61 points
Overall Junior Boy – Ed Ruffle – 62 points
