EMAS Junior Intercounties The Sydney Bond
Report by Charlotte Attwood
WE WON AGAIN, 3 Times in a row !!
We all got to the ground in plenty of time. Just after setting up one of our team’s fletchings decided to fall off !!! Fletching jig at the ready and by the time the whistle blew we had 6 fully fletched arrows and spares !!
We started off just a few points in front of Derbyshire the gap widened steadily throughout the day. Many thanks to Chris Rochelle who collected scores for me, we did find one or two discrepancies which were sorted quickly by David Anderson manning the computer, always worth collecting the scores.
At lunch we all had some lovely Chocolate Birthday Cake supplied by Wilford Bowmen to celebrate Tobias Tien’s Birthday.
Well done to all the team, who all shot well in a tricky wind, there were 3 new ones this year Holly Brown 9 only started last November and put in a whopping 1088 a PB by 78pts!!
Team Scores were:
Eleanor Rochelle Bristol 3 1134 PB
Will Oakes Bristol 3 1116
Holly Brown Bristol 5 1088 PB new to the team
Lois Darling Bristol 3 1026
Tobias Tien Bristol 2 998 Birthday boy
Mathilde Willson-Drummond Bristol 3 968 new to the team
Ethan Lamb Bristol 3 908 new to the team
Well done DAC and David Anderson for a good shoot that ran smoothly, very lucky with the weather and finished in good time.
Many thanks to Tony Drabble and Custom Built Archery for sponsoring the lovely shirts.
