The 60th Anniversary of the International Archery Match between Sherwood, Oregon and Nottingham, England was held on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July  17, 2016.  The event took place at Edy Ridge Elementary School soccer field. Sherwood is represented by the Sylvan Archers of Sherwood.  The Sylvan Archers were honored to be Grand Marshal of the Robin Hood festival parade.  Maid Marian, Jessica Mulkey shot the traditional “first arrow”  to officially start the match.


50 junior archers from across the East Midlands area met at Sherwood Archers field in Southwell Nottinghamshire on 24th July to compete for team honours at the EMAS Junior Inter-counties Tournament. A great day of shooting was had in lovely weather and this culminated in Hollie Smith, competing for Derbyshire, in breaking the UK record for the compound bow shooting the Bristol 3 round. Hollie scored a magnificent 1294 and only dropped one shot outside the gold zone. Well done Hollie. There were also lots of claims for Rose awards and six gold ends so a fantastic performance by all archers. Continue reading
