Busy May:

With the Outdoor season progressing our archers have shown early improvement in their skills, with three club members Andrea Whittle, Clair Crook and Clive Jarrett achieving their 252 awards at varying distances 40, 50 and 80 yards respectively.  It has also been a busy competitive month for the Crook family with Harriet Crook claiming a bronze medal at the Cleve Junior Metric Tournament, whilst Clair Crook came away with a Silver medal at the Redruth Archers “Double 720” and a Bronze medal at the Black and Gold Archers “Hereford” Round.  Clair also attained a black rose award for scoring over 900 points for her Hereford round, during a UK Record Status event.

On the 14th May the club hosted a Have-A-Go session to celebrate “Start Archery Week”.  The event was attended by 8 budding archers of all ages.  The weather was fine and an enjoyable morning was had by our coaches and their new students. 

Start Archery Week: Have-A-Go

Looking ahead: 8 archers will be representing South Wansdyke Archery Club at the upcoming Somerset County Championship, this event is being held in the grounds of Dunster Castle on Sunday 12th June.  A fitting venue. The club will also be present at the St Mary’s, Writhlington, school fayre on the 2nd July.  Do come along and speak with club members and have a go at something new.
