Great 3 days at GNAM in Lilleshall, a double York/Hereford on Wednesday and Thursday and a Long National on the Friday. Wednesday was cloudy and a little chilly, but then Thursday and Friday brightened up although there was a tricky wind, particularly at the longer distances.

Great to meet old friends and make new ones. The Longbow Club was well represented again with Alison and Steve Williams, Katrina Horton, Chris Eccles and Lord Ian Stowell who had the honour of shooting the first arrow of the tournament, a whistling arrow. There was an excellent turnout of Cheshire Archers.

Lord Ian won the Hepburn Challenge Spoon for the worst white on the Last end and a Gilt Spider in the Double York

Katrina won a Gilt medal for the Ladies any Bowstyle Handicap Award in the Double Hereford

Alison won a Silver medal for the Ladies any Bowstyle Handicap Award in the Double Hereford and also achieved her second Master Bowman score, so just one more to go.
