Report on our WA18 Record Status 5th Annual Inclusion Shoot

We are pleased to report that for the first time, the event, which was launched in conjunction with the Archery GB Development Disability Group was full and we even had a waiting list!

The Worshipful Company of Fletchers again supported the event and we thank them, they had 4 of their members spend a considerable amount of time showing a great interest in what was happening and our ambitions to continue to support Archery GB’s drive for inclusion and grow our contribution.

Hopefully the photos capture a taste of what was a very enjoyable and rewarding day, with an incredible range of abilities traveling from across the UK.

On a more parochial note good performances came from Ed Humphrey shooting his first recurve competition, since returning to the sport, recording a very respectable 560. John Dalton shooting Barebow broke the 500 barrier and his own county record in doing that. Toby Reece (age 12) won silver and scored 480 in his first competition.

A big thank you to all competitors, officials, supporters and club volunteers for again making this a very special event! We now begin our preparations for a further 2 Club Record Status Indoor events over the next few weeks. There are still places left on our Double Bray 1 Tournament, however our Record Status Stafford filled up within hours of being launched on our website!
