In May, the club held it's "Start Archery week" event, 48 people came along. We even introduced Octavia the Ostrich, our new 3D. Was a great afternoon. Thanks to all those club members who came along to help.
English 3D Champs
Later in the month, saw Steve & Angus travelling to the English 3D championships, hosted by Deer Park Archers. Both had a great time, and shot superbly, with Steve in 3rd place and Angus in 4th after day one. After day two Steve took 2nd place with Angus in 5th.
All British and Open Field Championships
At the end of the month, Steve & Richard travelled up to Bedford for the British Field Championships. It was a very tricky course, with some very tough competition. Richard in the recurve category had most of the GB Field and Olympic team there, hence a finish in 13th was a good result, considering the competition.
Steve had a smaller category in Trad, with just him and Ceri (Tosh) Thomas - who had won the championship for the last few years. A good result for Steve as well - 2nd place, but only 2 points behind Tosh, with both Trad archers beating many of the Barebow category!
