Tri-Counties Match – Results

Tri-Counties Match – Results

A great change to be out competing again and great to see many of the county archers come out and support the inter-county shoot. Some of the team were called in last minute as others had to stand down due to all carbon arrow ban for the day. An ongoing storm we all know but the farmer who puts his sheep to pasture on the land doesn’t allow them so we have to go with the organisers decision, now let’s look past that.

Welcome to Fii on the team first time out for the county ‘See wasn’t that scary’.

So it was a cold dry breezy day and Northants turned up and gave it our all I as your long standing suffering captain took the usual barracking from Bedfordshire, I would be worried If Terry wasn’t giving me grief.

At one point the captain were called together by the judges and were warned that the shoot may be reduced to a national due to the wind conditions, but luckily the wind stayed as a head on wind so the worries of the judges was soon hushed. Unlike the barracking form Terry!!

We all manged to get packed up just as a shower came over and let us know it was about, we were ushered into the indoor range where we waited for the results!!

In the end the scores came in.

Recurve 1st
Compound 2nd
Longbow 2nd
Bare Bow 1st
Juniors 2nd

Overall winners…. Northants!!!!

Thank you for those who filled in the gaps last minute and all that !! Again thank you all for your support greatly appreciated.

Up and coming EMAS Senior Inter-counties Tournament (Thoresby) 2021.

As we know it’s been a strange year and this year the selection for the shoot has had to take a different approach after contacting the ‘selectors’ from each club it was decided that I would need to canvas the archers that had taken part in various team events.

From the approach taken we have the following archers who have agreed to represent the county in this event.

Recurve:
Steve Allen – Targetcraft Archers
Ioannis Chrisinas – Northampton AC
Rebecca Stevens – Towcester Archers

4. When to be shot: All scores to be in by 31st July 2021

5. How round is to be shot: Where possible can the 6 dozen be shot on the same day. We ask that if you cannot complete the 6 dozen at one session, please shoot them in 2 sets of 3 over 2 sessions if needed (not just one dozen per session)

6. Record all the scores as you would normally, X`s, 10`s and so on. Please submit the final score totals only (not each individual arrow value) in the normal format, including the following information. Archer, Gender. Club. Bow Style. Senior/Junior (if junior age and which round shot).

7. All the scores will be on trust. We will be watching you.

8. Scores can be submitted either by:
· Either utilising the web portal as before I can pass these details on again to those who have not got the information
· Or sending the details direct to myself or your club selection committee volunteer. If these are to be sent direct to me please let me know details as mention in point 6

That`s it. Please acknowledge receipt of this email and if possible let me know that you will be taking part and we can expect scores from your archers. I think that every county rep has been included in this email where the county clubs have acknowledge who their Rep is. If that is not the case please let me know or pass it on.

RESULTS – NCAS vs BCAA Postal Match

Hi All

Just a big thank you for all that took part in the intercounty postal shoot 2020 out of the 62 archers taking part with 12 of those being archers who have shot less than a year which is great!!!.

After taking the highest score submitted from each Archer I awaited the call from BCAA (Bedfordshire County Archery). After the usual pleasantries we got down to business of how many archers per category would make the team.

This time it was difficult as I had twice the number of archers than they did so I matched their numbers. So from the 62 archers I had to take 30 top scores from the various categories.

Below is the outcome of the POSTAL 2020

Yep they got us this time!!!

All those that took part will be receiving a ‘Postal Shoot’ pin badge as soon as I have these I will get these to you ‘via Club reps’.

Those who made the NACS Team will be receiving Year Bars and the ‘Broch’ to hang these off it’s your first team shoot. Check the results to see if you made the team ‘NCAS V BCAA’ tab on the result sheet.

For the novices 1st yr shooting a separate event was held within the intercounty shoot and the results of this can be found on the ‘Novice’ tab of the results. Novices will be receiving a certificate and medal.

Again as soon as I have all the items together these will be sent to your club rep to pass on.

Big thank you to the Clubs that hosted open events ‘within permitted guidelines’ at the time for archers to get the chance to shoot and put a score in. Promoting and keeping me in line??

For the county committee letting me get on with ordering new badges to be made up for this event!!

Dean for putting the certificates together!!

And for the Bedfordshire team captains Terry Course & Suzi Bredin for getting the web portal sorted and getting involved.

Can’t wait for the next one!!! Already in the planning.

Thank you all again really hope to see you all on the shooting line soon.

Take Care, Be safe.
