SWAC St Nick shoot 2011

Despite the week’s worries about the weather – it turned out to be a lovely winter’s day with a chilly breeze only appearing towards the end of the comp.

18 archers made it on the day representing all GNAS bowstyles – including junior Ricky Gray shooting primitive! A couple of records were broken on the day and some very encouraging scores were submitted by many of our newer members.

As always this annual shoot is based on a handicap system (see more here) where you are essentially trying to beat your own handicap! This means that all archers and bowstyles can compete in the one category.

Many thanks to Alan & Jan for organising the event, Pete B for sorting out the handicaps and to Owen for working out the results. Lets hope more SWAC members can make it to next year’s shoot 🙂
