Southern Intercounties Combined Senior & Junior Championships
– Senior Team Managers Report

This years Intercounty tournament was held at Kent University, and 9 counties accepted the Southern Counties Archery Society’s invitation to enter teams.
The Sussex teams arrived bright and early, and despite the horrendous weather forecast of high winds and rain, the day turned out to be a bright sunny one, although the wind was very strong.

Sussex archers had a successful day; Longbow archers were included for the first time, and our team of Liz Bowyer, Marilyn Dewar, Cliff Knapp, Chris Ellis and Ron Smith came in first position. It is now hoped that this will be included every year in future.
