Old Basing Valentines day shoot....
Six of us went to the Valentines day shoot, on the 12th. It was an indoor shoot....Hah. It was COLD. The venue was great - an indoor tennis facility, but this had no heating, so we might as well have been shooting a frostbite.
Talk to Mike Bone when you want to know when to turn up to competitions - he can advise well on punctuality
Talk to Steve about crap shooting at competitions
Talk to Rob about post-shooting pubs
Talk to Richard about defrosting...
Richard shot the WA25 followed by the WA18 - the rest of us just shot the WA25.
Overall, Richard came 4th - and missed third place by ONE point,- unlucky!
Alexander picked up a Bronze in the U18 class!
The rest of us, based purely on the WA25 results, out of 30 gents recurve came: Richard (535 - 4th), Mark(517 - 12th), Rob(497 - 19th), Mike(464 - 23rd), Steve(444 - 24th)
