On the final Sunday indoors we shot a fun head to head Hit ‘n Miss competition. The finalists were Noam (R) and Sean (C) vs Daniel (C) and Matthew (BB). Daniel and Matthew started the day shooting against Noam and Sean and lost their match, but Daniel and Matthew met them again the final and were victorious on the second occasion.

Indoor County Shoot 2024 – Longbow County Champs

Deborah, Pip, Pete, Simon, Daniel, Paul and Chris all shot at the Cambridgeshire County Indoor Championships on Sunday 11th February 2024 at One Leisure, St. Ives. The Open Portsmouth shoot is run by Jolly Archers and incorporates the Cambridgeshire Archery Association (CAA) Indoor Championships.

This was the second year the shoot was UK Record Status so this meant official bow inspections and new this year a timer system.

Overall, a brilliant result for the club with lots of medals, last year it was nearly all barebow wins, this year lots of wins from the new longbow camp.

Here are the results from both the Jolly Archers shoot and the incorporated Cambridgeshire Indoor County results:
