Conditions were warm, damp and heavy on Sunday with the archers having to put up with periodic rain showers throughout the day. The round of the day was a 720 metric, that is 72 arrows shot at a single distance – 70m for Recurve and 50m for Compound.

Colin Moore, Pete Mumford and Rhys Moore lined up in the Gents Compound division with Rhys once again dominating from the get go. Pete Mumford put in a season’s best score in second place with Colin having to settle for third. Both Rhys and Pete carried on in the afternoon session to shoot a Double 720, which saw Rhys shatter the Club Record previously held by Pete Mumford by 76 points.

Only Josh Trafford and Danny Cowin showed up for the Gents Recurve. Josh was breaking in a new riser which had greatly affected his sight marks but he need not have worried as he led from start to finish adding 27 points to his pb for the round in the process.

Lone Ladies Recurver Barbara Harris put in a season’s best score but was still a little way down on her best.

Meanwhile the Junior Club members were getting in some practice ahead of next Sunday’s Junior Club Championships. James Hill and Toby Young were joined in the Short Metric III (30 & 20m) round by newcomer Luke Kenna. James added 30 points to his pb for the round but had to settle for second place behind Toby. Luke put in an encouraging first time total and we hope to see more of him.

 Tilly Ashton and second new face Nathan Kinrade shot a Short Metric IV (20 & 10m). Nathan was a little nervous over the first distance but settled well in the second distance and like Luke we hope to see him at the Club Championships. Tilly Ashton claimed to be a little tired after her excursion to the JNOC’s in Lilleshall but still managed to shatter the u12 Girls Club Record by 50 points.

Jacob Brookes was the only Junior to put in a full day and his efforts in the Metric IV (40, 30, 20 & 10m) rewarded him with not only a pb but another Club Record.
