Summer Solstice Challenge

      Comments Off on Summer Solstice Challenge

Sunday 22nd June 2014, shooting Windsors. This is a longer round than we normally shoot so we didn’t finish until about 4:30. Altogether twelve archers stayed on to finish the challenge and enter a score for one of the Windsors, but many others took part in the first leg and registered 252s. It was a glorious day, bright or hazy sunshine and hardly a breath of wind.

Because it was a longer round, we shot in details of 3 and 3 rather than six at a time, which made it much more comfortable for everyone. We also tried out the new target allocation sheets, where people wrote down what target/round they wanted to shoot. This seemed to meet with general approval. Also the new scheme where target and shooting line positions are marked along the ropes made things very much easier for everyone.

Because this is a round we don’t usually shoot we of course got lots of club records and personal bests, but we also got quite a few handicap improvements and two new classifications, congratulations!
