Jolly Archers Western 2022 Results

A day of many seasons in one day with wind, high humidity, some rain and burning sunshine. All of the Ely Archers team shot the standard Western round of 60 and 50 yards with 5 zone scoring. As with most AGB round competitions we had to shoot 3 arrows at a time, rotate and then shoot the other 3 arrows for the end which can be off putting but also gives you less time for resting.

In the end everyone had good results with Jordan, Paul and Louise all scoring personal bests and new club records.

Overall results:

1st Ladies Recurve – Louise
2nd Gents Recurve – Paul
2nd Gents Barebow – Daniel
4th Gents Compound – Jordan

City of Cambridge Bowmen World Archery Weekend

Several Ely Archers (Louise, Harry, Paul, Mel, Daniel and Jordan) attended the World Archery weekend at City of Cambridge Bowmen on Saturday and Sunday 14th and 15th May at Downing College Sports Ground. The rounds shot were double 720 rounds, so 144 arrows plus sighters each day. Distances on offer were 70m for recurve and longbow and 50m for barebow and compound.

Saturday saw very hot sunny weather whilst the Sunday saw a mixture of wind and wet weather.

Ely did manage to collect some medals over the weekend, even though traditionally medals are not handed out at these types of events, as people are usually just shooting for national ranking points.
