Juniors
show no fear by taking on the grownups in a 60 arrow 10m shoot.



 



This weekend saw the IJS & CE
and FAA Juniors take on grownups/parents and FAA members, including Gold Medal
winner at the Guernsey Games Mark Lewis and Bronze Medal team medallist Jason
Lewis in a head-to-head team shoot at the FIDF Hall. While the outcome was in
little doubt, the juniors stood their ground, shot their best arrows, had a
great deal of fun and showed they were not going to be intimidated by anyone.



 



A few juniors suffered equipment
problems and may have found the pressure a little too much, after all, for the
IJS &CE Juniors it was only their fourth shoot at 10m shooting 3 arrows per
end as per standard archery indoor rules. Shooting a total of 60 possible
scoring arrows, plus sighters to get warmed up for the event, there were many
tired arms at the end of the shoot. Still they did themselves proud and will be
most welcome additions to the big club when and should they decide to join.



 



The adultsí team was made up
parents or FAA members where the juniors were without a family member to shoot
with. Many parents had only taken up archery in the past few weeks in order to
take part in this shoot and would make very good archers in their own right and
addition to the club. However, one had not shot for some 34 years, since the
demise of the first archery club in Stanley in the early 80ís, welcome back
David.

Thomas Watson             404                  Andy
Watson                  533



Catlin Fowler                   227                 Alan
Fowler                     424



Jack Cartwright

Cartwright              431



Jordan Francis

Craig Lewis                     393                 Jason Lewis                     569



Connor McLeod             333                 David
McLeod                 508



Tamsin  McLeod              560                 Mark
Lewis                      588



Total                      2526                                          3591



 



Top Junior and Adult team on the
day were Mark and Tamsin who very graciously forfeited their scores and placing
in favour of the less experienced teams, a very sporting decision in the best
tradition of archery.



 



Craig & Jason Lewis                  962       First place



Thomas & Andy Watson             937       Second
place



Jordon Francis & Steve Gill        907       Third
Place



Connor & David McLeod           841      



Jack & Steve Cartwright 671



Catlin & Alan Fowler                  651



 



A big thank you to Steve Gill for
helping with the event and hosting the IJS & CE Archers over the last four
weeks, and to all the parents& family members that came to take part or to
spectate, your support is very much appreciated.
