Day 1

A good first day for The Longbow Club represented by Steve and Alison Williams, Katrina Horton, Lord Ian Stowell and Mike Christison at the Cheshire Weekend. A WA1440 today and also the EAF Championships. Katrina Horton was 1st Lady Longbow, 1st Lady Longbow EAF and overall Lady Longbow Winner, Alison Williams was 3rd Lady Longbow, Mike Christison was 3rd Gent Longbow.

Day 2

Cheshire Championships today and like yesterday 5 of us from The Longbow Club were taking part – Steve and Alison Williams, Katrina Horton, Lord Ian Stowell and Mike Christison . Rain and thunderstorms threatened but fortunately it all held off until we were waiting for the raffle – then the heavens opened!
Well done to Katrina who retained her trophy as the Cheshire Lady Longbow Champion again! Alison was 3rd Cheshire Lady Longbow and Ian was 2nd Cheshire Gents Longbow.
A wonderful time was had by all with lovely company and lots of laughs as usual. It was great to see Amanda Biddulph shooting again and winning the Ladies National round.

165th GNAM Tournament

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.
