Many congratulations to Margam Archers members, Graham Anderson and Sandra Russell who, despite bad weather conditions at the Fonman Course, took the Gents and Ladies Historical Bow titles on 28th and 29th April.

From the WFAA website:

There was hot competition too in the longbow and historical bow divisions where Graham Anderson of Margam Archers recorded a strong score to take the Gents title. Sandra Russell, also of Margam Archers also shot very well to win the Ladies Historical bow division.

A Great start to the Summer Tournament

Seventeen archers took the field for the first of our Summer Tournament events. A great turnout and a great start.

A big thanks to Kevin and Andy for arranging the shoot and also to John Luty for being Line Captain – I think he might be getting fond of that whistle!

We all had a great time, the weather was good and shooting is always better with good company. Although not part of the shoot itself, we all went up the stoop and tried our best, Mike Davies getting the honours of closest to the Old Stump! Mike must have been on buoyed by his sucess on the Stoop as he went on to win the day!

You can see the full results here.

Why not have a  a look in the forum, Kevin has posted a summary of the day.

Well Done Everyone!

Roving Marks – Ice Shoot

The Roving Marks arranged by Andy Gash and Kevin Rattenbury was a great success!

The weather and the shoot were definitely memorable! Despite ground so hard the arrows wouldn’t always penetrate there were remarkable few broken arrows – Nell, Kevin said he is sorry!

John Rawles took the honours on the day, well done John!

Cwmni Venison Shoot

Many thanks to all who supported the Venison Shoot today, and those who came along early to help set out the course. We all had a good time, and even the weather was kind to us. Congratulations to John Rawles and Nell, enjoy the venison!
