A further three people completed their 252 award during their supervised sessions. Badges will be awarded once membership has been confirmed.

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 July 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.
Corey, Neill and Linda all won competition medals. Linda and Neill won Rose Awards, and Neill shot a new Longbow 50+ National Record with his Hereford/Bristol I score of 561.
Neill’s national record has now been confirmed. Well done Neill!
A full report of the day can be found in the club news section.
So far only 5 score sheets have been submitted for the club Coronation Competition. Three have qualified for a Gold medal and two for silver.
The competition runs to the end of August and 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.
