Noak Hill Archers - Scorching hot in July
Well, where to start, as we see the hottest weather since 1976 Noak Hill Archers have been setting the competitions alight as we come to the end of the month.
Longbow, Field and Target archers representing the club have been winning and finishing very well throughout the month.

We have seen the juniors yet again win the Essex Team award at the W1440 tournament held at Rayleigh with a combined score of 3143 and this was made up of the individual scores as follows:
Rhiannon Easton shot the ladies WA1440 and scored 888
Samuel Gulvin shot the Metric IV and scored 1185 another JMB score
Andrew Lock shot the Metric 2 round and scored 1070.
All three archers won the individual gold medal for their category.
Sunday 29th July saw the older guard go to the Abbey Bowmens new ground at Broxhill sports centre at the top of straight road for the Havering over 45's competition.
While the weather was warm the winds were challenging for all the competitors and this made for a very interesting day.
Archers were trying to focus on shooting and stopping their chairs/tents and other sundry items from blowing across the field, both John Raffin and Max were were watching their hats blow across the target field and hoping no one tried to shoot them....
Noak hill archers were again successful in all categories to varying degree's with Gold Medal's for Allan Horne, Sharon Lawrence, John Raffin, Mark Lawrence and silver medal for Glenn Rodgers with Max Room winning a bronze medal and Noak Hill also retained the team recurve award gold for the event.
