June 2018 saw the annual club championship event take place which was very well attended by members from target, field and longbow archers.
Most members shot the American round which is 2.5 dozen at 60yds, 50yds and 40yds for a total of 90 arrows with a maximum score of 810, the juniors and beginners shot appropriate distance rounds to their age or ability.
After a hard fought competition the men.s recurve title was convincingly won by Allan Horne (and his black mamba bow) with a very impressive 758 points from a 810 maximum score available. (Allan commented he actually scored 760 but missed this when adding up)
In fairness the additional 2 points were not required as Alan won by a significant margin.
Other winners on the day were:
Rhiannon Easton (Junior) won the Ladies Recurve
Sharon Lawrence Ladies Longbow
Max Room Gents Longbow
Dennis Oates Gents Barebow
Samuel Gulvin won the junior boy recurve with Luke Knight coming a credible second at his first club championship.
Jacob Horne won the junior longbow award
Lisette Reed won the girls compound
John Raffin won the gents compound
Finally the handicap award was won by Sharon Lawrence.
Well done to all who took part and after a great shooting we all enjoyed the fine food that was supplied by the local chippy which perfectly timed and well organised by Ken
