SCAS 3D Field Championships
The hills above Kingsclere were once again the venue for the regional field archery championships hosted by Overton Black Arrows. Archers were shooting a World Archery 3D round where competitors shoot 2 arrows at each of 24 fake animal targets. Targets are roughly life sized, but not what you would normally see in the area, with Vernon the Velociraptor, a Segasaurus, Polar bears and a large blue deer, to name a few.
Fifty-two archers took part from all over the south east of England, with some visitors from further afield. Local club archers from Overton Black Arrows did well, with Rob Aldridge coming 4th in the Barebow category, Richard Buckner and Paul Williams coming 1st and 2nd in the Recurve category and Steve Allam & Angus Falcon Relf coming 2nd and 3rd in the Traditional category.
Once again the club was raising money for their chosen charity - “Time to Talk” www.t2twb.org and have raised a further £225 to add to this years total, which has now reached over £1000 and been match-funded up to £2K
