Cracking day at the GWAS Regional & Irish National Championships!

We sent a strong team of 24 archers to the Grand Western Regional Championships on Sunday and finished the day with 10  Golds, 1 silver and 3 bronze medals! Add to this 15 Personal Bests and 2 County Records and it adds up to a good day!

John Craigie just missed out on a Regional Title winning silver and Tom Howse, Dave Sandles & Christine Anderton won bronze.

The one disappointment was Simon sustaining an injury part the way through the competition and having to drop out.

Simon, get well soon!
