Lilleshall National Mid Summer Event
Congratulations to Phyllis!
This Summer Phyllis was selected to shoot for the East of Scotland Ladies Recurve Team to compete in The National County Team Championships which were held in Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre which is also where Archery GB Headquarters is located, Nr Telford. It was quite an experience as you can see by the number of Targets, 70 in total! These targets were just the Recurve Targets, there was another line the same for Combound and a few in the middle for Long Bows! What a sight!
Last year the ladies recurve team finished in 16th position and it was their goal this year to make it to the top ten, which they did! They were in 9th position after day 1 but still managed to hang on to the 10th position by the end of day 2!
The East of Scotland Gents Recurve Team were the crowning glory, winning the Championships!
The Ladies Compound Team finished in 6th place, so overall a fantastic result for the Eastern Area of Scotland!
Penicuik Archers Penny Shoot
Over the weekend of 20th & 21st June Penicuik Archers held their annual Penny Shoot which consisted of two days of shooting. This year the first day was a WA 70m round followed by H2H Rounds, the 70m round was a ranking round and all the archers were seeded for the H2H. The second day was a WA 1440 round and the awards were given out on the results of the combined placings from both days.
Alan Martin and Patricia shot a single day on the Sunday, both shot well and Patricia was 3rd in the Ladies Recurve, quite an achievement considering the very windy conditions! Well done Patricia!
Phyllis & Nessa took part in the full weekend event with a great result - Phyllis was awarded the Silver medal and Nessa the Bronze along with two lovely prizes of engraved Crystal Glasses! Well done girls!
