The 11th of December saw the inaugural shoot starting from 10am till 12pm on Sundays.
Event – World Archery Indoor Archery Round
18m, 60 arrows, Compounds score an inner ten.
With the unusual situation of only one compound shooter in attendance Cory extended his lead in his division with another 9 points. I’m guessing Cory is not a morning person taking 30 arrows to warm up.
Cory – 247 + 261 = 508
The Recurve division was more contested with four archers competing. This was the first scoring round for Frank and Andrew in a very long time and Andrew did well to keep it on the target as 18m on the small target in further then he is used to. Frank also warmed up as the comp progressed scoring 30 better in the second half. James and Dougal are finding the gold with greater frequency with both putting in some very good ends but James managed to hold off Dougal and take todays winn.
Monday saw the beginning of the Heidelberg Archers Shooting year; starting in Summer.
We had five member attending with 3 shooting, I (Glenn) had a lot of beginners at the centre so my attention was elsewhere and David who had done his shoulder in has to wait 2 weeks before shooting again.
This leaves Cory (compound), Richard (recurve) and Victor (recurve)to battle it out.
ROUND – World Archery 18m
The night managed to bring out the best from Cory and Richard with both recording personal bests. Victor is taking a long term view and is at the moment concentrating on his technique and flinging a lot of arrows down the range.
Cory 271 + 263 = 534
Richard 242 + 243 = 485
Victor 225 + 246 = 471
1st. Cory – 9 points
1st. Richard – 9 points
