What a wonderful weekend we had for the Longbow fraternity. Dry and sunny on both days, a ‘little’ damp under foot but not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the hardy longbow archers who had travelled from all over the country to take part in the 2 tournaments. The ‘Jimmy Melvin Memorial’ on the Saturday and the ‘EAF Longbow Championships’ on the Sunday. Photographs, courtesy of our judge, Steve Richardson, are on the links below.
ERIC ‘The Viking’ trophy is in fond memory of Eric Coggins. The trophy will be awarded to the archer with the most Red’s – hence the Lucky 7. The lucky archer gets to have a drink on Eric, Jack Daniels was his favourit tipple, and the bottle will be replaced each year.
The tournament takes place on Sunday, 13 May, entry forms are available from the County Website and from Brian Trotter, the Tournament Organiser, or click on the link below to download a copy.
Thomas and Rob both took medals at the Green Lane Bray’s on Sunday. They both shot their Longbow and Rob came a very well deserved 3rd and ‘little’ Thomas, who is rapidly becoming the club mascot, took 1st place as Junior Boy.
