Recurve Team

Ros Creasey, Sallie Kirk, Ian Davies, Richard Dixon-Teasdale, David Lowe, Leigh Whitbread, Alex Bridges


Helen Lowe


Monday saw 6 more return to Rolls Royce to shoot their St. George round.

Steve Gamble was pipped to the top step of the podium with his longbow.  David Lowe also shot the St George round with his recurve.

Down at the Albion shooting line saw Helen Lowe with her compound and much to the horror of the onlooking longbow archers, bryan unveiled his Compound Bow.  It was that much odd a shock, that Tony Drabble from Custom Built Archery heard and dropped in to see the spectacle on his way back from the shop.

on the Windsor shooting line was Sallie and Leigh

it was a hot day, everyone enjoyed themselves.  The turnout of around 25 archers was a far cry from the 118 of the league the day before, but was much better than the 16 entries in 2012
