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.
2nd Men’s Barebow – Daniel
