The fifth and final Frostbite shoot of the 2018/19 season last Sunday, 3rd March, was a wet and windy occasion. The unfavourable weather conditions did not deter a respectable number of members attending. A big “thank you” is needed for Paul Murray for organising and arranging this season’s Frostbite tournament, although if he could try harder on organising better weather next year it would be appreciated!
The results were as follows:
|Freya Bezencon (BB)||129|
|Recurve Team A (competing against Pendle & Samlesbury)|
|Barrie Le Grove||252|
|Recurve Team B (competing against Sutton Coldfield)|
|Vic Addis (BB)||214|
|Compound Team (competing against Friars’ Gate Archers)|
With the winter season concluded, we are now looking forward to the start of the summer season with the first Sunburn shoot on 26th May.
Sunday 10th February saw the fourth and penultimate Frostbite shoot of the 2018/19 winter season. Despite the threat of wind and rain we had a descent turnout with a strong contingent of bare bow archers.
The results were as follows:
Recurve Team A (Competing against Westcott Archer)
Recurve Team B (Competing against Bannockburn Bowman)
|Vic Addis (BB)||232|
Compound Team (Competing against Royal Richmond)
The season finale is on Sunday, 3 March. If last year was anything to go by we can expect snow!
The last round of this years Frostbite League took place at the field last Sunday, 18th March. The "Beast From The East" certainly made for the coldest shooting conditions so far making the league really live up to it's name. Despite the snow and ice 9 brave club members were not put off by elements and turned up to represent their club.
Paul Murray our League Secretary would like to thank everyone that took part in the Frostbite League this year and especially to those that turned out on Sunday in the horrendous conditions of Snow, Ice, Mud and Arctic winds. Your dedication and commitment was and is very much appreciated. The scores from Sunday were as follows:
Neil Gunner – 315
Graham Whittington – 307
Kieron Wharton – 304
Recurve Team A
Dan Mitchell – 294
Clive Poland – 266
Paul Murray – 237
Recurve Team B
Nicky McDowell – 232
Chris Bruce-Hay – 227
Barrie Le Grove – 205
Don't forget that the Sunburn League starts in May so hopefully the weather will be much warmer and drier by then!
Sunday saw our first Frostbite league shoot of the year. A big thank you to all 14 Archers who braved the windy and slightly muddy conditions.
