7 County Records in 8 Days

Over the past year we have seen and steady rise of one of our “small”est young archers Imogen Newby (10 yrs) from Braintree Bowmen Juniors. Most of you should know her by now…as the smallest one on the shooting line!

In the space of 8 days Imogen’s summer campaign has claimed 7 county records, come with 5-6 points of the National Records for the Short Junior Western and the Metric V and had her first call up to the Essex County Squad.

Imogen’s plans this summer are to claim the Essex Outdoor, SCAS Outdoor, UK Junior Masters and National Outdoor Junior U12 Recurve titles. While we have a long way to go, things could turn to gold this summer and through next winter for Imogen. Just goes to show that with a little determination and training, anything is possible.

Good Luck Imogen and for more about her year see the Full Article

Passing of Chris Smith

It is with great sadness that I pass on the news that Chris Smith passed away on Sunday, 24th May. He had been unwell for several months recently.

The service for Chris will be held at Pitsea Crematorium on Thursday, 11th June at 1.20 pm. All are welcome to attend the service. However, the family would like to have a private reception afterwards just for family and a few close friends.

Chris was a Senior Coach and was always happy to help archers with their shooting technique. He was awarded the County’s “Baldwin” Trophy for services to the County at their AGM on 5 February, 2006. In that same year, on 19th March, he was awarded the County’s prestigious “Red Tassel” and he also held the office of ECAA’s Vice President for the term 2009/2011.

Chris will be very much missed, not only by the members of Pilgrim Archers, but archers from many Essex clubs.

We send our most sincere condolences to Janet and the family.

Graham presented with Silver Plaquette

Graham Sibley was honoured with a Plaquette for 'Services to Archery' at AGB Annual General Meeting.

For obvious reasons he was unable to attend in person and was subsequently presented with the award in his hospital bed by ECAA Life Vice President - Marlene Hutchins!

Graham was delighted to receive the award and thanks everyone who put forward his name.

He also wishes to thank all who have asked after him and sent wishes for his speedy recovery to full health.

Busy Weekend of Judge Promotions

It was a busy weekend of Judge assessments this weekend 9/10 May.

At the City of Cambridge WA720 on Saturday  Paul Body was successful at his Regional Judges Assessment.

On the following day Steven Johnson passed his County assessment at Kestrels.

Both grades changes are effective immediately and congratulations to Paul and Steven for all the hard work to get to these levele.

If anyone else is interested in eating cake and drinking tea (and a bit of judging) then contact the judges through the Judges Page and we will provide more information.
