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.

On Sunday 27th March 2022 we held our final indoor shoot with a round of Beiter Hit n Miss targets. We began by drawing teams of 2 from a hat and then shot 30 arrows in a qualifying round (no sighters) and then ranked the teams ready for the sets of matches. Overall 4 matches were shot which decided the 4 teams that would shoot in the final matches.

Final Results

Mel produced a rather nice fake cheque at home. Here it is presented to Mel and Daniel.

Ely Archers Win Frostbite Round 2

On Sunday 20th March six Ely Archers travelled to Parkfield Archers in Wimblington. Parkfield Archers hosted the second round of the inter-club Frostbite round.

A small change of line-up this time with Mike Williamson being replaced by Paul Beck on recurve who was joined by Mel. Daniel and Jordan shot compound and Pete and Alison shot barebow.

It was a nice sunny and only slightly breezy Sunday afternoon at Parkfield. A number of great Frostbite scores saw Ely Archers win the second round.

Pictured is Jordan with the tiny plastic cup which was engraved with a black sharpie!

That could the final round this year, hopefully next year it will be back bigger and better with more rounds during the winter.
