Busy at Wilford Bowmen

Last weekend was busy, we provided all the bosses, stands etc for use at the Junior Masters shoot on the University ground at Highfields. It all went very smoothly and ArcheryGB have thanked us and the club members who helped – Sharon and Mike Sanchez and Kevin Salmon.

Mimi Tien shot in the Junior Masters having gained her Junior Master Bowmen earlier this year. She did really well in the ranking round in the morning finishing 15th. In the head to head sessions, she was narrowly knocked out early on by a more experienced archer. Good experience for the future, well done Mimi.

On the same day at Loscoe in Derbyshire Sallie Kirk and Steve Attwood were shooting for Notts against Derbyshire and Warwickshire. Conditions were tricky with a difficult wind and scores were lower all round. Despite being one team member short, Notts recurve team were a creditable second.

The activity continues this weekend as we are hosting the third and final leg of the Notts inter club league which growing in popularity. This means an early start in order to get the equipment set up. And it looks like we will have deal with the remnants of hurricane Bertha.
