The day finally arrived for the first Whiteleaf Bowmen Open Shoot post pandemic with 28 archers due to compete across all 9 targets. The ground party arrived early to set up the field with mist swirling around but the prospect of a dry, maybe sunny shoot. Some sterling work soon had the field ready for the shoot and it was great to see a full field of targets with pristine targets on, ready to greet the archers.
As our Chairperson Julie welcomed the archers and went through the admin, the sun started to appear and 27 archers prepared themselves for the challenge ahead. The shoot went really smoothly under the control of the judges David and Meera and helped by the fact we only had one missing arrow the whole day.
At the end of a very enjoyable shoot, the top archers in each category received their medals from our Lady Paramount, Jan, and a hastily arranged raffle (thanks to those who provided prizes) raised over £100 for club funds.
Thanks to Neill for arranging the tournament and those archers who helped on the day.
