Appears we now have a new disipline at Broadlands. Who needs elliminator lanes when you can compete in the “Speed Knitting” contest? Please bring your own wool.
Ed Cable and Simon Ayres travelled to the European Championships this weekend held at Weston Park, Shropshire. A huge congratulations to Simon on taking first place after a 7 way shoot off. Very well deserved – how you hold your nerve is unbelievable Simon!
Mark and Kathy Johnson attended the Essex Open at Springfield ARC on 14th September. An excellent day out was had there. A 40 target course set mainly in woodland had many targets high up in the trees which made for some tricky shots. A slight breeze had you wondering whether to aim off or go down the middle on the longer targets. A link to quite a few pics below will see Kathy receiving her Top Lady medal ( and the Golden Bunny!) and Mark losing the third place shoot off in A grade!
Another good turnout for the final – teams were drawing 2-2 so it was all to play for this afternoon. The weather was kind with just a slight breeze. Unofficially it looks like Team J has won today with 161 points against 160 from Team M. How close can it get? We need to wait for the official scores later in the week for final confirmation. Either way well shot everybody. Top scorers were Amanda Dougal, Kathy Johnson and Mark Johnson on 36/40. Again we need to wait for the official scores when eliminater lanes are counted to find the Top Gun.
UPDATE 20/09/14– Final scores are Team J -161 Team M – 160. Team J wins the series 3-2.
Top Gun on round 5 was Amanda after the eliminators were taken into account.
A BBQ was held after the shoot so a very well done and thank you to Paul and Pete for showing us their cooking skills. A few pics below.

Another good turnout with good weather to help us. Team J wins this round which brings both teams level so its all to play for at final round 5. Top gun this time was Ian Button with an excellent 38/40. Scores are linked below with a few pics of the day.
