A big well done and thank you WAC Juniors for attending the Chessington Junior Shoot, you all shot really well and we’re very proud of you.
Well done Sam, Arthur, Josh and Noah!

Oxford Junior Masters!

Jess & James both had a great day at the Junior Masters in Oxford. After a qualifying round there were head to heads, possibly the first ones for Jess but she did really well and took it in her stride. James had some hard fought matches but managed to come 2nd. Well done to both of them.

May Club Shoot – Reminder

Remember this Sunday 6th May is the monthly club shoot. Come along and join us for a fun and social morning with a bit of shooting thrown in.
If you can help with making some breakfast butties for those shooting please let Helen Ruffle know.
See if you can beat Elaine’s April trick shot.

Congratulations Louise and Eleanor!

Big congratulations to Louisa and Eleanor on selection to the GBR Senior Team for the Shanghai World Cup from the 23rd to 28th April. For both girls it will be their GBR Senior Team debut. With Louisa being 14 and Nell 19 I think you will agree its a super achievement.

Louisa is on the AGB National Olympic Squad and Nell is part of the AGB National Squad and for both it will be a great opportunity to further their international experience.

April Club Shoot

Well done to all 21 WAC archers who braved the weather on Sunday for our first Club Shoot of the year. Although starting dry, it did get much worse! Ending in torrential rain at the end.

Never mind, we did have Kelly Slater and her family supplying our cooked sandwiches. Thank you so much Kelly. You were definitely in the right place!

There are still a few trophies that need to be returned, and need to be awarded. 
Namely O/A Longbow Gent, 1st Place Senior Handicap & 1st Place Junior Handicap. If these could be returned asap please.

It was great to see some new faces at the Club. Congratulations to all the winners. Everyone shooting Sunday will have their names entered into the Monthly KO. If you couldn’t make Sunday, you have this week to enter a round to qualify.
