All Change Please!!!

After 13 years and many a sleepless night, Bryan Haynes is standing down as Webmaster for EMAS and Notts Archery.

Bryan has done a sterling job getting the websites from nothing to what they are today and he can be justifiably  proud of what he has achieved.

Bryan is handing the reins for both websites over to Malcolm Douglas-Kellie from Sherwood Archers, and the emails will now go to him rather than Bryan.  Hopefully you will be as helpful to Malcolm as you have been to Bryan.

The same rules apply for those wanting items on the sites, you need to send them to Malcolm, he will NOT go hunting for your information to put it on there.  The email addresses for requesting things to go onto the sites are

Report by Charlotte Attwood, Junior Team Manager

Held at LAOFAC Countesthorpe, Leicestershire.


The rounds this year were Nationals.

Due to an inconsistent decision our U12 girls had to shoot their longest distance 30/20yds whereas all other age groups shot their shortest distances!

Our young girls did us all proud. Jazz Haoot at 8 years old shot a blinder 534 sealing 5th place, Holly Brown 11yrs 515 and Lucy Price 10yrs 412. Well done girls.

It was a very close shoot with Derbyshire breathing down our necks, at 4 dozen there was just 20pts between us, we finished up just 15 in front!

3 teams had 5 or more archers.

Top 5 scores are taken for the final team score.

Notts                     2834

Derbyshire            2819

Northants              2652

Congratulations to all of our team members they really gave it their all. Congratulations also to Laura Eyres highest Notts scorer with 592.
