Annual Double Bray 1 Report

Our annual Double Bray 1 attracted another full house of entries and it did not disappoint, with 3 British Records, one Welsh National Record and many county records! Of the 14 categories our Archers took 12 of the 14 titles. Well done to:

Amelia Williams, Vanessa Crang, Roger Crang, Ed Humphrey, Dan Gill, Molly Peters, Ella Gibson, Imogen Colenutt, Josh Uzzell, Katy Reece, Ryan Faulkner, Sue Sanders.

Molly Peters beat the Recurve Junior National Record and even improved on that in the second session but that will not qualify!

Molly Peters recorded her first British record!

Ella Gibson, fresh back from the Junior World Indoor Championships in the USA, broke both the Compound senior and junior national records.

Congratulations to both!

Norman Wilcox shooting longbow broke the Welsh National Longbow Record with 388 and also won the £50 Wales Archery Voucher following a random draw from all the Section winners!

We had great support from a number of Archers from local clubs and it is always great to host them.
Our various teams of amazing volunteers and our brilliant Judges, Richard Jones and Adrian Gifkins once again did a great job. Thanks also to Alison Pine our Lady Patron for the day.

Events like this contribute greatly to our efforts to fund a new clubhouse so we are grateful to all the generous support we are receiving.

Just over 3 weeks to our next Record Status Tournament a Stafford Round, at GL1 fully booked in less than 24 hours!
