Diary Dates, Updates and Thanks

Dear County Archers.

A few dates for your diary, updates and thanks

Firstly a thank you to Carl and Kestrels for the county get together last Saturday. Despite the cold we had an enjoyable morning, with the 3 dozen arrows mini competition and then the H2H. Which it seems everybody taking part enjoyed, so much so we will repeat at the next CAGT. Many thanks to Pat and Brian for conducting the shooting, taking everybody through the procedures for a record status tournament. Also thanks to the experienced archers and coaches for attending and giving advise.

Beds V Northants Frostbite.

Please see the attached results. It seems honours even with both the counties taking 4 disciplines each. Northants taking the overall win with the points tally. Well done everybody who submitted scores. We will beat them.

2024 Postal Frostbite V Northants Including Northants

Woodside Worcester March 2024 – results

Greetings !
Here are the preliminary results. Please check this agrees with what you sent me.
So, five of our eight clubs participated with 57 archers involved.
The juniors and seniors are lumped together as the juniors can hold their own against allcomers. Well done!
If you are the highest scorer in your discipline and age group you may wish to contact Martin Gascoigne, the County Records Officer, and claim a postal county record.
Thanks to you and your clubmates for taking part in this year’s event.
Looking forward to the outdoor season and other county-wide events.

Results for this year’s (2023) postal County Championships

Greetings !
Please find attached the results for this year’s postal County Championships.

BCAA 2023 Outdoor Champs – American rounds 12-13 Aug 2023 results version 1

Last year we had 19 County archers of which 17 actually shot at Kestrels Double National.

This year we had 43 archers involved from six of our eight BCAA-affiliated clubs.

The real disappointment was that only three juniors participated despite the availability of shorter “American” rounds.

Thanks to all who submitted scores. The two days were similar; the Saturday was quite windy and the Sunday was perhaps less windy but with stronger gusts. Both days were quite warm.

Medals will be presented at the BCAA AGM in November.

Please apply for postal county records using the County website. All the juniors should be eligible for records. All the top scorers in each discipline will count but I am unclear whether there will be a distinction between 50+/Senior/U21. Hopefully Martin Gascoigne, our County Records Officer will be able to clarify on this.

Thanks to all archers who took part and to those who organised their club event and submitted scores. Not an ideal situation, I appreciate, but we have got the Champs done and more archers were involved.

Best wishes
Mike
BCAA Chairman
