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:
VAN GEFFEN Lexi
When you look at the scores it was close in some of the classes, very close!!!
Over all we took 1st in:
Junior Bare bow (Reported as a Beds Win on the day)
So it’s the start of our face to face shoots after the few years of Covid!! Starting with the inter-county against BCAA (Beds) at the IVY Keating on Sunday 22nd May 2022, and the rounds will be Short Metric’s.
I will be looking at scores shot in the previous Postal and past events, so if you’re interested in being selected, here’s a few ways of making yourself known.
Got to local shoots!
Email me with your scores!
Let your club selector know your interested!
I will be looking to contact archers within the 2nd week of May as the shoot is on the 22nd as of yet team size has not been finalised all categories, are being looked at.
Several county records were broken at the recent Ivy Keating county match against Bedfordshire in May.
GBR squad member Susan Corless of Northampton AC, improved on her own Ladies Compound WA1440 record with 1387. In the process she also improved her records for the 70m distance with 342, 50m distance with 346, Ladies Long Metric with 687, and Short Metric with 700.
More recently at the UK Masters at the beginning of June, Susan also broken the 60m distance record with 348.
Other records were also broken at the Ivy Keating match, including James Halsall of Wellingborough OAC, who achieved a new Junior Gents Barebow record for a Metric III round with 628. A number of other records achieved on the day are yet to be claimed.
As some of you will know we have our first inter county shoot coming up on the 17/05/2015, we as a county are not hosting it this year so as of yet I don’t have all the details from the Bedfordshire County Captain. I’m letting you all know due to historically the invites would be coming out after the 1st Caswell, I may still send some out but I don’t want to send out too many as I may have to contact some of you and ask for you to stand down. Again this would be due down to numbers for the squad? Again decided by the hosting county.
I hope you all shoot well over the next few months and remember if you think I don’t know how good your scores are then you need to let your club reps know ( each club should have a rep whos on teh team selection committee) or send me your scores!!
