The League Secretary writes…

This is my first year as Junior Winter League Secretary and I have really enjoyed it!  It has given me the opportunity to meet so many junior archers and their parents and put faces to names at tournaments.  At K2 I even had the pleasure of shooting on the same target as one of the juniors.
I am delighted to report that I received entries from 14 clubs, 65 archers and 7 different bow types – come on girls longbow archers I know you’re out there!  Five archers managed to submit scores for the indoor AND outdoor leagues.

Carol DaviesCombinedStJeanDesMonts

Carol Davies, a visually impaired archer, seized the opportunity to shoot for GB at the European Para-archery Championships in Saint Jean De Monts, France in April 2016. Carol is a member of Blind Veterans UK Bowmen in Ovingdean, and is currently coached and supported by two Sussex County Coaches.

Carol thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the tournament – including shooting against Steve Prowse the current world champion. Carol lost in the quarter-finals to the eventual bronze medallist Claudio Peruffo from Italy.

She described the tournament as “the experience of a lifetime” and would like to express her gratitude to SCAA for giving her a grant towards the cost of the trip.

EuroChampsOct2015Sussex has a Junior European Field Champion and Two Junior Silver Medallists.

In a strongly-contested European Field Championships at Rzeszow in Poland, with temperatures swinging from below freezing to quite hot, Bryony Pitman of Worthing put down her marker for next year when she’ll move into the Senior ranks by beating top ranked Chiara Rebagliati 50 to 46 to become European Junior Lady Champion.

Pip Tucknott, who is now studying in Scotland, also shot for Team GB.

County Championships – McMullan Honoured

July 21st, 2015

RogerMacMullanCertificateAMSCAA President Philip Van Buren presented a Silver Medal and Certificate to Roger McMullan on behalf of the Southern Counties Archery Society in recognition of thirty-plus years of Judging in the Region. For much of that time Roger was the only Judge based in Sussex. Wherever Roger has gone to judge, wife Zillah been along too as at least 50% of a brilliant double-act, and Sussex County was delighted she accepted the invitation to be Lady Paramount on Championships Day. The McMullan’s contribution is truly immeasurable, and whole generations of archers have grown up helped along by Roger and Zillah in their inimitable way.

Roger’s retirement almost meant we were Judgeless – but as one door closed behind Roger, another opened for Julie Pede to step in as Candidate Judge, and we wish her all the very best and can’t wait for her to be become qualified.
