National Indoor Championships 2018

Congratulations to Lord Ian Stowell on his performance at the National Indoor Championships today. 
4th place in the qualifying round (and only missed out on 3rd place by number of 10s), then he got through to the quarter finals and was only just beaten by the guy who was later runner-up in the final. Definitely putting The Longbow Club on the map!

Caldy Bowmen’s 39th Indoor Tournament

Congratulations to all the Longbow Club members who took part in Caldy Bowmen’s 39th Indoor Tournament yesterday at Leasowe. Especially to Keith Ledson who won his first ever medal! He was 3rd Gent Longbow, part of the winning team for the Longbow Team Trophy (alongside Katrina Horton and Lord Ian Stowell) and also achieved a Black Deva badge. Not bad having taken up archery a year ago – and with a bow he made himself!

Katrina Horton was 1st Lady Longbow; Lord Ian Stowell was 1st Gent Longbow; Dylan Higgs was 1st Junior Boy Longbow; Katrina and Chris Eccles won the Longbow Jack and Jill medals and were also presented with flowers and wine for their help with running the scoring for the day. Also taking part were Graham Higgs and Mike Christison.
Ian and Katrina also did very well in the raffle as well!

Four County Records Taken…

Congratulations to Lord Ian Stowell and Dylan Higgs who, between them took four Cheshire County Records.

Dylan took the Bray 1 and Bray 2 records in the under 14 Junior Longbow and came 2nd Junior Longbow overall in the competition at Green Lane Archers in Northumberland.

Ian took the Gent Longbow Bray 1 and Bray 2 records and was denied 1st Gent Longbow due to an adding up error on the score sheet.
