UKRS Eastern Area Championships

On the 11th January, five of our keen archers braved the snow and wind to compete in the UKRS Eastern Area Championships in Lasswade. This was a Portsmouth competition - for those of you not familiar with indoor rounds yet, this is five dozen arrows shot at a 60cm target face, the same as the one most of us shoot at on a Wednesday night and at the same distance. For Alan Bothwell, this was his first novice full Portsmouth competition which has set the trend for him entering future competitions. The day proved to be one of a mixed bag with some good scores and some others that we won't mention. Kay Smith had some success picking up the ladies D classification medal, for the highest score for archers in a classification banding, well done Kay! The next competition is the WRS SAA Championships at Lasswade, here's hoping for good shooting.
