Just a seasonal note to send our members and their families the compliments of the season and to wish them a happy and healthy 2020 (and good shooting!) There are the usual spoon results and some international results by former members.
This is Masud Parker, one of our most recent beginners. Masud was bought a set
of equipment by a very generous relative when they heard he was trying Archery
with Ardleigh. When he told us the equipment was coming, we had concerns that it
might not be quite suitable for a newer archer, while they are developing their style.
As you can see, we needn’t have worried!
Our former member, Sarah Bettles is continuing to compete on the international scene, taking a pivotal role in some very tense shoot-offs. Sarah won Team Bronze at the World Championships and Team Gold at the European Games in Minsk, both in June.
The picture above is at our 59th Annual Club Field Competition on Sunday 1st September. A lovely (if occasionally slightly overcast!) day. The results will be at the end of this newsletter, together with those for the WA1440, Club Target and Double American competitions
Here are the Warwick round badges (252) that our up for grabs to the newcomers with less than 2 years experience or to those under 18.
For more information on the quest of the 252 badges see in the newsletter.
This was a first time ever for him shooting a bow. He had a quite intensive session and, as you can see, he took to it like a “duck to water”. Shooting from a good distance back, all aspects of his style were good and the results are as you can see. We started off, as usual, with barebow and then put a sight on, which was when this happened!
