We are hosting the national barebow championships on sunday 24th of november. Full details and entry forms are available on the link below and on the DNAA website.
Two of the clubs juniors have excelled themselves this weekend.
Thomas Jones, shooting for the County at Penrith won the Boy’s Overall Longbow trophy with a score of 354, a personal best for him and also gained him his Black Rose Award.
Caitlin Bailey, who for the past few months has been doing her Level 1 Coaching Course, passed her assessment on Saturday with flying colours. So we shall have a brand new Level 1 Coach on the line on Wednesday night.
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to you both.
The final leg of the Maureen James Trophy was shot on Sunday 22 September and was won by Lia Seccombe with an adjusted score of 1529 closeley followed by Kate Dunnighan with 1526 and Sheila Carney with 1517.
Lia has won all 3 legs of the competition winning the trophy out-right and becoming the new name for the event, i.e. ‘The Lia Seccombe Trophy’, to be shot for next outdoor season. This is Lia’s very first season having only just completed her Beginners Course in February and over the duration of the competition Lia’s handicap has gone down from 86 to 73, impressive for any archer but for a 10 year old is outstanding.
As can be seen from the full result sheet on the link below Lia was 387 points ahead with 4671, 2nd and 3th place was very close with Alan Dunnighan on 4284 and Sheila Carney on 4262 and Lia’s Dad, Paul coming in 4th with 4098 and Gloria Capeling 5th with 3983.
Vivien Davies took the Club Record for the American round with a Compound bow with a score of 768.
16 archers took part in the trophy shoot but only 5 managed to shoot in all 3 legs.
The winner of the trophy for the month of August is Gloria Capeling!
