Herts League Match Report – 12th June

It was a wet and windy League match Sunday (12th June) where the mighty Aim4sport AC Hosted the Hurricane that was Stortford Archery Club.  By the time we got to sighters the hurricane had turned to a cool breeze.
For those that don’t know, the league matches are shot over a short metric round.  This consists of a 6 dozen arrows, 3 dozen at 50 metres and 3 dozen at 30 metres on an 80cm target face.
The short metric was shot in let’s say interesting conditions….yes it was raining but the valiant archers saw it through to the end.
The team shot brilliantly and a new club record was shot by our very own Dave Vaughan, just weeks after breaking his collar bone in a  car accident, Dave came in with a huge 610.
Oil Buckingham our very own junior member and an Aim4sport pro team shooter came in with his own club record of 509.
A very creditable 252 was posted by Graham Appleby.  I must find out where he got his longbow from…….

Fun though wet afternoon was had by all.  So all the club members know if you would like to be a part of the league match process you don’t have to shoot.  If you would like to see what goes on but are not quite at the distances shot please come along, we can always do with a pair of hands.
