Ivy Keating 2022

Ivy Keating 2022

The Ivy Keating match 2022 was a great day!!

Firstly a big shout out to Wellingborough Archery Club for hosting cracking job a big thank you to Paul and the club for organising the event. As the opening comment says it was a great day with the ‘Tricky’ wind kept all archers on their toes, but the day was warm and bright. It was great to be on the same field with the opposition, and Bedfordshire always have a bit fun and are a great county to work with.

Great to see new faces on the squad and to put actual names to faces from those that I have only seen as names on the Postal league shoots.

So in no particular order hello to the newbie’s on the squad:
HOBBS Frances
WATTS Aethon
ELLIS Finley

When you look at the scores it was close in some of the classes, very close!!!

Over all we took 1st in:
Senior Recurve
Senior Barebow
Junior Recurve
Junior Bare bow (Reported as a Beds Win on the day)
