Sussex Archers in the World Indoor Barebow Championships

8 :  Adam Stevens  501
10:  Steve Baldwin  494
12 : Sidonie Lake (J)  309
16 : Wendy Sinclair  451

A National Champion at the All British Field Championships

The All British & Open Field Championships were held on 26th & 27th May at Overton Black Arrows in Hampshire. The course was set mostly over open downland with some severe slopes to concentrate the archer’s minds. Both days were hot and sunny with strong winds on the first day, making it tricky just walking around the course, let alone shooting!

Congratulations to Paul Castle of Eastbourne Archers who was crowned National Field Champion shooting the Traditional Bow.
Paul was accompanied by Adam Stevens, also of Eastbourne, who came 2nd to form the winning Traditional Team.
Gary Cole from Hellingly was placed 3rd Compound Unlimited.
Bryony Pitman of Worthing was the top Junior U/18 Recurve archer. The Junior National Field Championships will be held over 21st & 22nd July.

Well done to all of the Sussex archers who took part, keeping up the strong presence of Sussex in field archery.

5 in a Row for Liz at the Southern Counties Clout Championships – 10th June

Always a difficult two-way shoot on the tricky sloping Dunstable field, poor light caused by the heavy clouds overhead made shooting conditions rather more difficult than usual, and scores were generally lower than in 2011, however

Liz Bowyer of Arundown Archers once again took the Ladies Recurve Trophy home;

Richard Britton of Plumpton Bowmen managed a close Second Place in the Barebow class;

Unusually, the Gents Longbow group had the largest number of entrants, and Graham Brown of Arundown took the bronze medal;
