Congratulations to Elliot & Lewis on their achievements at the Junior National Champs. The event was held over the weekend of 2-3 July & was the biggest ever. With over 330 of GB’s best young archers, across all disciplines, shooting it out across 91 targets….it was quite a spectacle!

Saturday was Metrics day and Elliot, shooting a Metric I for the first time, scored 1001 which place him 20th in a very competitive field. Lewis, shooting a Metric III, scored a massive 1249, placing him 2nd & winning him a silver medal.

The Bristol rounds were on Sunday. Elliot came in 15th, with 1020 for a Bristol I & Lewis, shooting the Bristol III, was eventually placed 4th.

General, Tournaments Posted on Mon, June 22, 2015 16:19

Hi Everyone,

Just a short report on last Sundays
Kedleston shoot [14th June 2015] with the long-bowers. The weather was a little
changeable, lots of fine rain showers, but everyone seemed to be ok and
enjoying themselves. There were Archers from lots of different places
which made for lots of new faces at a well-attended annual event.

Our archers had a few triumphs with at least 3 personal bests, but no medals this time. lol, maybe next time.

A good afternoons shooting was had by all. They are all looking forward to next years gathering.

WELL DONE TO ALL [Full results can be found on our tournaments page.]


P.S. A big well done to India and Connor in their first longbow tournament.
