Report – Sydney Bond Junior Inter-counties Team Tournament 2019

Report – Sydney Bond Junior Inter-counties Team Tournament 2019

Today I had the privilege of standing in for Martin Ross as county captain as the NCAS junior team took part in the EMAS inter counties tournament for the Sydney Bond Trophy (Recurve) & Bingham Ceramics trophy (Compound).

After a wild day of weather on Saturday I was relieved to wake up to a calm breeze and the early signs of a sunny Sunday. At least I could be sure I wasn’t going to loose any of my junior team to Wizard of Oz style winds which had been my concern on Saturday!!

As we arrived the sun disappeared and as assembly started we saw the beginnings of some heavy rain!!

The juniors stayed in good spirits and got on with it and were rewarded with the return of the sunshine with scattered showers. The rain was bearable it was the mud that was the bigger issue!!

Throughout the day our recurve team maintained a steady 3rd position whilst the compounds shot well but were in last place.

As always the spirit of the Northampton team shone through and I am proud to have been their captain today. No complaining and lots of supporting each other, as teams should do.

Final results for the teams were…

Recurve Team:
Nottinghamshire 5312
Derbyshire 5183
Northamptonshire 5114
Leicestershire & Rutland 4920
Lincolnshire 3393

Compound Team:
Leicestershire & Rutland 2332
Derbyshire 2280
Northamptonshire 2146

Of our team of 10 juniors they have been able to claim:
3 x Rose awards
1 x 6 gold end award

And 6 archers achieved a personal best.

Thank you to the adults who drove the juniors for the event and to my coaches who were put to work during the day.

I think it is fair to say that we have a team of wet, tired and muddy juniors headed home having had an excellent day of archery.

Thank you all for making it easy to look after you all.

Helen Sharpe.

Help! Missing Finger Tab.

Did anyone find a very small finger tab on the field during or after Saturday’s Dawn til Dusk charity shoot?

Rose Sharpe of WOAC can’t find hers and she needs it ahead of the Junior Nationals this weekend. She can’t easilly replace it because of it’s small size.

If anyone happened to pick it up please could you email Helen at treasurer@woac.co.uk

NCAS Dawn til Dusk – Target List

NCAS Dawn til Dusk – Target List

Countdown is ticking on and we are getting close to the start of our crazy day of arrows!

I hope that everyone has a great time, please see attached a preliminary target list.

If I wasn’t sure exactly what you want to do I may have booked you into more than you may want, don’t worry, I don’t know what everyone wants to show bow style wise as I know some people have discussed a different bow for each session, again don’t worry.

There may be people who join you as there is an open invitation to turn up and shoot if they find they have time on the day, everyone is welcome to come and shoot when we are all there with the same aim, have fun for charity.

Any questions please ask.

There will be spaces on the score sheets to complete any missing information to ensure that when we collars the results for the Chris mason league that the results are accurate.

There will be no medals, however there is a little memento planned for each archer taking part, this will not be ready on Saturday but I will get them out to everyone afterwards, it is a little surprise to say thank you for taking part and to remind you afterwards that we all had a great day for a great cause.

A reminder that the event will count towards the 2018/19 Chris Mason Celebration League. Archers highest single National round score of the day will be used, regardless of session. Please email the county records officer Dean Edwards if you need clarification.

Weather – the forecast for Saturday is still hot!!! Exactly what we need on an endurance shoot!
 Please be mindful of the possible heatwave when planning clothing and what to bring with you on the day. The day is about fun, not making ourselves unwell.
