Exmouth Archers World Archery Weekend

20 August 2023

Three Yelverton Bowmen archers gained entry into the Exmouth Archers hosted tournament between the 19th and 20th of August.

Iain Lees braved the early conditions on the Saturday in the Compound WA50 round and scoring a respectable 500 which earned him a White WA target badge. Results from day one can be found on Ianseo.net.

Sunday saw Linda Wright and Neill White join Iain to shoot the WA1440 rounds.

Conditions were somewhat better than the previous day with early rain giving way to sunshine in the afternoon and a packed shooting line with over 70 archers taking part.

Iain shot again a highly respectable 1154 in the Men’s Compound WA1440 and gained another 2 awards of the Black Star 1100 WA badge and a Blue DCAS FITA star – well done !

Linda came in 2nd in the Ladies Barebow WA1440 with 599 points and Neill managed 3rd in the Men’s Longbow WA1440 with a qualifying MB 50+ score of 473. Results from the second day can also be found on Ianseo.net.

It was another “good day out” for Yelverton Bowmen so hope to see more of us on the shooting line soon.

The next competition is the DCAS Autumn Gold hosted at Redruth Archers.
