There were several success stories coming out of recent open shoots for Fleet Ibex members.
Southern Championships 16th and 17th July 2016
Several members competed in the excellent 2 day Southern Championships organised by the Apollo and Raven clubs. Only those completing the full 2 days (11 Ibex members) were listed in the results but these included (in medal positions):
Gents AFB - Denis Alston 2nd
Gents Bowhunter - John Jackson 3rd
Junior Girl Bowhunter - Lara Evans 1st
Ladies Compound Limited - Caroline Jameson 1st
Gents Compound Unlimited - Edward Britton 3rd
Ladies Primitive - Carolyn Neville 3rd
Magna Carta 24th July 2016
A smaller shoot but none the less equally enjoyable was the open shoot at Magna Carta on 24th July. Several Ibex members achieved medal performances:
Gents AFB - Glenn Martin 1st, Grant Hazelton 2nd
Ladies Barebow - Sharon Charman 1st, Vanessa Manchester 2nd
Gents Barebow - Rod Harris 2nd, Derek Manchester 3rd.
So, an excellent day for Sagittarius bows - all 6 medals in the bag!! Of particular note was the performance by Sharon whose score would have won her gold in the gents barebow.
So, next date for the diary is 14th August where we are holding our own open shoot of the year. Many thanks to all clubs involved (Apollo, Raven and Magna) for all their effort.
