The weather forecast was appalling for the day of our annual club championships but, although wet at times, it could have been worse and we managed to get through the day without too much disruption.
Many thanks to the members who made the effort to attend - 43 of you shooting (about the same as last year)
Everyone seemed to have a good day shooting around 20 targets set out, as usual for this event, as walk back targets either side of the main track. By completing 2 circuits (each time from a different peg) we managed to fit in 40 targets in a small area of ground. Many thanks to Terry and Graham for their excellent course setting.
Perhaps as a club we need to agree whether it’s worth continuing the championship shoot. In my view, an attendance of 43 out of a membership of about 230 is not good. To be charitable, the poor weather may have been a significant factor.
The full results can be seen on the “Shoot Results and Reports” page of this web site.
Well done to all medalists.
In particular, congratulations to Daniel Hawley who took the overall champion award. His score shooting Gents Longbow was outstanding.
It was particularly encouraging for me as the handicaps calculated from the open shoots this year seem to result in a very close competition with the top 3 being from 3 different classes with only 13 points between 1st and 3rd.
