The Results are now available from the John Hartfield Memorial Field Shoot held at Daventry Rugby Club on 16th & 17th June 2012. The shoot also incorporates the EMAS regional & NCAS county championships.
Northamptonshire Sport instigated a programme as a part of the build-up to the Olympics based on the year 2012. The programme is aimed at getting 20 Companies taking part in 12 sports. On the 20th June WOAC hosted, on behalf of NCAS, an archery session for 7 companies who expressed an interest in trying archery. Each team consisted of 4 members who were instructed in the basics of shooting followed by a team competition. From the feedback it was enjoyed by all and there were quite a few enquires for information about clubs throughout the County.
Archery was the first sport on the programme and to date the most popular event, equalled only by golf on team participation numbers. The winners of the competition – 1st Northamptonshire Sport A team, 2nd YMCA Trainers, 3rd Northamptonshire Rejects.
Thanks must go to WOAC club members who gave up an evening’s shooting to help and the rest of the club who were shunted to the far side of the field.
Many congratulations to Bradley Denny of Archers of Raunds who has been chosen to shoot for England in the Home Nations competition at Lilleshall in July as part of the Junior Nationals Weekend.
