Ken Gray Memorial Shoot

The 14th Ken Gray Memorial shoot was held at Mayflower Archers on Saturday 6th February. This shoot was set up in remembrance of Ken who developed Mayflower’s successful Junior club. It was Ken who started this invitational shoot, designed for juniors in their first year or so of shooting to gain some experience of a competition, without the formality. An average score is calculated for each team in calculating the final results and following this, the bosses are filled with balloons for all to burst and sweets dished out to those who pop them.

Best Wishes Tommy

Many of you will know Tommy Hodder, not just for his excellent string making, but also for the fact that he has always been a good shot and represented GB some years ago.


In more recent years he has suffered problems with his feet, and his left foot in particular, due to diabetes, which has made life difficult for shooting and judging.


On Wednesday, 25th November, he underwent an operation at Basildon Hospital to have his left leg amputated below the knee and will remain in hospital for some weeks.  I am sure we all wish Tommy a speedy recovery and a happy return to archery when the time is right for him.  His determination to shoot again will see him through this very difficult time.
