Castle Junior Archery League 2017-2018
January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
In October 2017, seven Junior archers from Cleve took part in an inter-club competition against Deer Park and Supermarine in Swindon. This was part of a 6-club competition for clubs along the M4 corridor being co-ordinated by a club from near Oxford.
On Saturday January 20th, it is Cleve’s turn to host this competition The team of seven who shot in Swindon – Josh Smith, Marco Costanza, Will Hardy, Ella Shield, Tallulah Kelly, Sophia Boulton and Jasmin Williams are the first choice for the team of 12.
The remaining 5 spaces are offered on the basis of scores shot Indoors over the past couple of months by recurve archers (since the competition is aimed at recurve archers). The five are;
Anna Perkins, Matthew Cannell, Jessica Dale, Esme Caie, and Aimee Brake
The shoot itself will start at 2.30pm at Chipping Sodbury – i.e. just after the afternoon club session finishes. The round is a Portsmouth (60 arrows at 20 yards at the 60cm face you are very familiar with). I am hoping things will be finished around 5 to 5.30pm. There are some prizes (medals) in combined age groups of U12/U14 and U16/U18. There are no official medals for Compounds and Barebow although I will try and source some from within the club.
So, all 12 of you, can you please let me know by Sunday 7th if you are able to take part on the 20th as part of ‘Team Cleve’ ? I have had some people already let me know but if you could confirm that would be great.
Following our shoot this month, Deer Park will be hosting their event on the afternoon of Sunday 11th February and the ‘grand final’ for all 6 clubs will be in Wallingford on 18th March (12.30pm for us). I suspect we will only be able to send a team of 8 to those events but put the dates in your diary.
I hope you are able to compete on the 20th. Do please let me know ASAP. You can still shoot at the normal club session on the 20th (morning or afternoon) if you want to as well.
