Essex at the European Championships

ArcheryGB held the European Championships and CQT at Nottingnham between the 21st and 29th May 2016 and Essex were well represented.

Daisy Clark was shooting in the Ladies Compound category and was part of the GBR team (with Andrea Gales and Naomi Jones) who made it through to the finals in the very centre of Nottingham coming fourth after a close match against the Netherlands in a fantastic venue.

Essex were also well represented in the Judges and volunteers with Steve Johnson and Paul Clark taking charge of a number of team matches along with the Continental Judges and Richard Pilkington acting as Assistant DoS.

The event was one of the best people had ever seen - high praise indeed from officials who travel the world at such events and the question being asked is what can the team do next?

Whatever it is I hope I can be involved as it was great fun even if it was very hard work!
Richard

Mrs Felicity Victoria Wright

Iris and Tom have just sent on the sad news from Brian Wright that Felicity passed away on the 9th March, 2016

Felicity was a National Coach and was very well known in the county, region and nationally, was Secretary of the Essex Guild of Archery Coaches during the period 1982-1986, Vice President of the Essex County Archery Association for the term 1990-1991 and the first Lady President of the county for the term 1991-1994. In 1991 she was presented with the county’s prestigious “Red Tassel” award for her services to Essex.

Felicity was a lovely lady with a friendly welcoming smile on her face and always listened with genuine interest to whoever was speaking to her. She had a very caring nature and gave up her time most generously to anyone who needed her help.

Archery GB have just released details of the archers selected to represent GB at the European Youth Cup in Budapest from 2 to 7 May.

Congratulations to both of them.


First Head to Heads in Essex

Mayflower Archers hosted the counties first World Record Status WA18 on Sunday 14th February.

Organiser Alex Purser decided it was high time the county hosted a World Record Status indoor event, and the planning began in earnest last autumn.

Key to the success of running head to head events is good organisation and a foolproof scoring programme. Alex managed both with great skill although his heart sunk when the only instructions he could find for the Italian designed software on You Tube were all delivered in Italian.

The shoot attracted a good numbers of archers from outside of the county  and one new UK Record was claimed for the Ladies Compound 15 arrow match round by Bayley Sargeant and six World Archery Target Awards were applied for.

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.
