The IoM Archery Club met at Onchan on Sunday to shoot a WA18 round as part of the Club’s Handicap League. The Seniors shot on a triple face target while the Juniors and Bare bow archers shot on a single face. The scratch scores were then adjusted according to handicap to give the overall result. The handicapping system allows all archers to compete against each other irrespective of age, gender or bow type.

Once again Josh Trafford had the highest scratch score in the Gents Recurve division but had to settle for fifth place after the handicap. Rhys Moore likewise continued his domination of the Gents Compound division but ended up in equal fifth place with Josh.

Newcomer Alex Parkes put in a terrific pb for the round and was rewarded with the overall win. Joseph Reaney found some form to finish in second place after the handicap was applied. Lesley Sleight continued to get to grips with her new bow, recording a pb for the round and taking third place overall.

Aaron Pannell-Cottier and Matt Elliot also recorded personal best scores for the round and finished in fourth and eleventh respectively.

Tilly Ashton was breaking in new heavier limbs ahead of the Outdoor season and was looking to get a feel for the bow rather than score chasing.
