Jan 23 – Members attend first competition and are victorious!

(L-R) Shona, Alan, Suzanne, Mark, Richard and Steve S

Six members of Rugby Archers made a weekend of it by taking part in two separate competitions and coming home with a handful of bling.

All six archers went along to the Long Buckby Archery Club Indoor Portsmouth Tournament to take part in their very first competition. After battling against 30+ other archers, Mark took home silver in the Men’s Barebow Single and gold in the Double. Richard took a bronze in both the Men’s Barebow Single and Double, and Shona walked away with the silver Women’s Barebow Single.

Sunday was spent with other Warwickshire clubs at the County of Warwick Archery Association Indoor Senior Championships in Walsall. This time, Shona was awarded “the golden quiver” for 1st place in the Women’s Barebow across all clubs under the CWAA, and Alan received the Most Improved Men’s Handicap award across all bowtypes, which is an amazing award to win on just your second ever competition!

Congratulations to all our archers who took part. Medals aside, they had a great time and learned a lot. And, all have signed up for another competition in March, so they must have enjoyed it!
