One new club record was set and one existing club record beaten in July.
Certificates were awarded to the following archers:
The following Classification Badges were awarded under the new Archery GB Classification Scheme:
More information on classification can be found here, or speak to me on a shooting night. You can start to shoot classification rounds once you have achieved your 20 yard 252 or AGB Progress award, and start working towards your first Archer Classification.
Badges were awarded to the following archers:
More information on the two progress schemes can be found here, or speak to me at one of our club sessions.
The following scores were submitted, and as you can see from the results below the club is performing exceptionally well:
Seven of our eight teams won their rounds this month, even Short Warwick team 4 and Junior Short Warwick team 2, who only had one score submitted each. Unfortunately only one score was submitted towards the Compound Long Warwick team, and they were beaten by Wadebridge who had only submitted two scores.
Jack & Neill have retained their titles as the highest scoring U16 Boys Recurve Archer and highest scoring Gents Longbow Archer with a score of 275, respectively.
After the third month, of the five month competition, the team standings are as follows:
Once again can I please remind you all that this is a monthly competition so we all need to be shooting our Warwick rounds for entry into the August round. This is open to all club members who are currently capable of shooting the relevant distances.
Details of the competition can be found here.
Our teams are really well placed but we need your scores in order to keep the momentum up, and be in with a chance of winning a number of the Divisions.
A further 3 score sheets were submitted in July for this internal club competition, which means to date that only 8 people have taken part. Five of these have qualified for a gold medal and three for a silver medal.
The competition is open to all club members and we have decided to extend the closing date of the competition to the 22nd September to give people more time to submit a round, and be in with a chance to win one of the following medals.
The competition details can be found here, anyone with a 20 yard 252 or AGB Progress award, or above, can shoot a Windsor round and be in with the chance to win a Coronation medal.
The Windsor rounds are as follows:
Shooting a successful Windsor round will also go a long way towards an Archer Classification.
If you have any questions please talk to me at one of our club sessions.
