May 2017 news
At a recent international tournament at Exbury, Hampshire, Jodie Buckner came 3rd in the Junior Ladies recurve class whilst Richard Buckner came 5th in the Gentlemen’s class. The Bank holiday weekend saw the 50th All British & Open Field Archery Championship in South Wales. Club member Bill Jones competed in barebow and achieved 15th place in Great Britain. Club President, Peter Turner, was one of the judges at this year’s event. He competed in the first championships in 1968 and has been at every one since - either as an archer, judge or, on the organizing committee when the club staged the event at Kingsclere in 2012.
