Our archers had a very good day at the Berkshire championships. Harry had bronze in the double WA70 with an impressive score of 1014, Martin won the gold in the compound WA50, along with a good portion of the raffle prizes. He wasn’t there to receive his prizes but we were under instructions to ” GET ALCOHOL”.! Steve won bronze in the WA60 novice recurve with a score of 412. I should of shot better than that but it was a bit blowy, the sun was in my eyes, and i’m sure my arrows are wonky plus loads of other excuses. definitely not operator error… 🙂
Bob and Allison were shooting the WA40, Bob scored 485 and Allison scored an impressive 582.! With scores like that they’re ready to tackle the next level up i reckon.!
Emma was also shooting in the compound WA50 but retired part way through due to operator and equipment failure. ! 🙂 The fletch ripped off one arrow and another shattered into 3 pieces ! an achievement like that deserves a medal in itself !!
B.P.A Clout competition 17th March 2019
Well there was eventually a break in the weather allowing the competition to take place. It actually turned out to be a nice bright morning, though it was a little on the chilly side..! even the wind had died down allowing the arrows to stay in roughly the right direction so any ramblers in the area were safe too..!
Getting ready to shoot
Some of the bows used by the archers
It was a brilliant morning for all that took part regardless of skill level
Of course, after shooting there is the long walk to see how well you have done. If nothing else, you get some exercise in.!
How can you not have a great time when you’re surrounded with sights like this??
A good session tonight. Alison shot a perfect 30 which led to a score of 59 for the end. Very impressive ! and Steve got a couple of 30s which led to two ends of 58. pretty good!
Alison’s Perfect 30
