End of Season Long Western Results

What a marvellous day that was last Sunday. An almost full field of 51 archers gathered to shoot various Western-family rounds in conditions that ranged from breezy sunshine to miserable drizzle. Not only did they all manage it, even the scoresheets were all legible after the downpour. An especial congratulations to Lily-Ann Plumtree of South Leeds Archers, who shot a new Yorkshire record (subject to confirmation)
Totting up the scores was made easier by there only being one mistake (a bizarre one – a dozen score of 476) across all the running slips.
There was a large raffle, and even larger awards ceremony. We had purchased a number of new and replacement trophies, which were well received, and, with the number of categories being shot, it did seem at times as if every archer won at least one medal.
Throughout the day, catering was, as usual, provided. Special note must be made of the chilli, which had a distinct “kick” to it.
The Lord Patron was Max Oakley, who even gave an impromptu speech at the end, and was duly rewarded with his weight in Jolly Ranchers!
