National Series: spectacular climax to
summer of drama
Youth Festival:
special report
Autumn is here and it is time to look back on what has been a quite
spectacular summer!
There have been medals, thrills, spills – and in this issue we are
celebrating your achievements by cramming in as much coverage as
possible of the outdoor season. That’s why it is the tournaments edition!
And of course we have had huge success internationally. You will find
full coverage of that too – along with the proof that archery can make a
real difference to people’s lives.
To fit everything in, a few things have had to give, including our regular
Your Pictures feature. But don’t worry – it will be back with a bumper
edition in the winter issue. We are also trying out a new
approach to obituaries in this issue. We need a format that
recognises the achievements of much-valued members
but is fair to everyone. We hope we have achieved it but
would welcome your feedback.
The sun is still shining (sometimes!) so get out there and
take full advantage.
Good shooting!

were two aims: to entertain the waiting

archer made a 600-mile round trip
to be part of it.
And it was worth it for Pentref

The Flexi-Shoot was hosted by

format allows archers to arrive
anytime between 9am and 3pm
to start a round of four-dozen arrows at

introduce youngsters to the sport
ever since – but something
happened recently to prove just
how good a resource it really is.
He said:“I was lucky enough to win
an Arrows set through a competition

the fun of using it to teach the basics
of archery to Beaver and Cub

“The Arrows kit, with the addition of a

Remembering the
band of brothers
S
ix hundred years ago Henry V’s
forces were facing
insurmountable odds on the
battlefield. Then English and Welsh
archers were deployed. The place was
Azincourt – and what happened next
inspired Shakespeare and countless
others over the centuries.
This year there have been shoots
and events in Britain and northern
France to commemorate the Battle of
Agincourt which took place on St
Crispin’s Day – 25 October 1415. As
Archery UK was going to press,
preparations were being made for an
Agincourt clout shoot against a
backdrop of the spectacular
Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, on
24 September.
Like so many other of Britain’s great
houses and towns, Chatsworth has
strong links to the battle. In 1415 its
owner, Sir Roger Leche, was treasurer
to Henry V and responsible for raising
the funds for the campaign. He, and
his son Philip, also helped to raise the
necessary forces.
Clubs around the country have also
been marking the anniversary by
staging special shoots. These have
included Wirral Archers, Norton Archers,
Cheltenham Archers, South Wiltshire
Archery Club and many more. You
can find out more about what has
been going on – and what is yet to
come – at www.agincourt600.com
and www.azincourt2015.info
But we want to hear about your
celebrations too! If you have been

he search is on and the question
is, can you help? A Welsh Archery
Association gonfalon is missing

to help find it.
It is – or was – awarded at the Welsh
Archery Association Championships in
January by the Wales Judges’ Group. It
goes to the club judged to have
presented the best organised
tournament during the previous
outdoor season.
That club then has the right to
display it all year at its tournaments –
except that they can’t. The gonfalon
has been missing for several years and
all efforts to find it have failed.
Clubs are now being asked to have
a good look around for the gonfalon,

and its wooden stand. Anyone with
information is asked to contact the
group’s judge liaison officer. The email

Marking
Magna Carta
E
ight hundred years ago King John
signed a charter guaranteeing
the first steps towards legal
equality and personal freedoms.There
have been a few bumps in the road
since then but that did not stop archers
around the country seizing the chance
to celebrate.
Among them was Silver Arrow
Archery. Dunstable Bowmen and
Wheathampstead Archery Club joined
members for an open shoot on the
club’s field in Edlesborough,
Buckinghamshire – and the dress code
was definitely medieval. There was even
a monk on hand to bless the event.
More than nine dozen arrows were
released, finishing with a volley at the end
signifying victory for the rebel barons.

were presented to the winning archers. Gold shy?

Peter Durtnall of South Wiltshire
Archery Club thought when he
found this young family nestling in
the shot-out centre of his target. Lez Newsome
Lez Newsome, known by many as Mr Aardvark, has
passed away after a battle with cancer.
He started his archery career by becoming the
national under-13 indoor recurve champion. He went on
to win national junior indoor and outdoor titles, shoot
with Britain’s junior and senior teams, represent Yorkshire
and be part of the England compound team.
Lez, the Chairman of Bronte Archers, had a great
depth of knowledge and experience and was the force behind
Aardvark Archery in West Yorkshire. He instigated a no sale policy, only
allowing customers to purchase what was suitable and available, if
these boxes were not ticked then there was no sale.
Alan Raymond Ruby
Dedicated archer Alan Ruby has passed away. Alan,
a former Sussex County Archery Association
President, helped found Sunallon Archers in Horsham.
He also shot for his county and drew his wife, Jean
and children Michael and Jill into the sport. Their
success made him intensely proud. But his real
passion was promoting the sport by coaching in a
local school, sports centre and his club, now renamed Holbrook Archers.
Alex Bates
Tribute has been paid to Alex Bates Of Atkins Archers
who has died at the age of 29.
Club chairman Michael Flanders said he was quiet,
meticulous and supportive and with a dry sense of
humour.“He was a pleasure to shoot with, an
enthusiastic member - and could always be counted
on to finish off the last of the food at club events or volunteer to save
what was left from going to waste!”
Chris Smith
Chris Smith, a Senior Coach Emeritus and member of
the Pilgrim Archers in Essex, has passed away.
He, his wife Jean and their family were members of
Hutton Bowmen and, when it disbanded, joined the
Pilgrim Archers. The couple organised the county FITA
championships and ran activities on behalf of the
Essex Guild of Archery Coaches. Chris, a former Essex Vice-President, was
awarded the county’s Baldwin Trophy and a Red Tassel for his service.
Trevor Francis
NEWS
Trevor Frances, the founder of Bowmen of Bruntwood,
has died in Natal, aged 94.
He opted for archery after sustaining a spinal injury
during the Second World War but could not find a local
club. So, in 1950, he set up the club, originally named
Cheadle Bowmen, with six other people. It now has
more than 100 members and trained, among others,
Olympian Charlotte Burgess and Paralympian Richard Hennahane.
Trevor and his widow, Meg, eventually moved to South Africa.

70 years – part 3
Frank Lister looks back at a lifetime in archery
In 1944 Frank Lister helped to found White Rose Archers. He still shoots regularly – and
after 70-plus years he has a few stories to tell. He spoke to club member Nigel Smethurst.
PEOPLE
M
ore than 40 years ago I had a
self-yew longbow made and
I’ve been shooting with it ever
since. I’ve always shot in the Scorton
Arrow with it – and won the Phillips cup
three times.There I had the pleasure of
meeting Ben Hird who wrote the famous
book on the Scorton Arrow, and I’ve
enjoyed the company once or twice of
Robert Hardy, who is a notable authority
on longbows and a bit of a character.
I don’t shoot a lot now but I will go for
the Bowyers’ Plate every year, usually the
Yorkshire Archery Championships, and
for the past 30 years in June we have
gone to Dunster Archery Week, making
a holiday of it. I’ve shot at quite a few
places over the past 70 years.
I joined Kirklees Field Archers who shot
at Kirklees. We built a clubhouse and of
course Robin Hood is buried there, his
grave was in the middle of our field
course. Eventually the land was sold for
development and the club moved to
Reed, becoming Oak Leaf Archers.
Things have changed. Wearing
appropriate dress in either green or
white was very important when I started.
I can remember the first time going to a
shoot at the Scorton Arrow and the
members there were dressed in green
frock coats with tails, and waistcoats
and broad brimmed hats, although
ladies had stopped wearing crinolines!
We shot the same rounds as today
although we didn’t have the World
Archery rounds.There were no
metric rounds.
I remember Chris White, one of the
founders of Panda Bowmen, which was
set up for archers with polio and
disabilities. We used to go to a shoot run
by an organisation called the Guild of
Elizabethan Archers, which replicated
famous archery competitions. At one,
archers were led by the Lord Mayor in a
parade through the streets of London to
12
the shooting ground. All archers
then shot three arrows at 130 yards,
three at 110 yards and three at 90
yards.The target was a wand stuck
in the ground and I won that one.
I have shot most bow styles
except compound. I do think they
are brilliant weapons but they are
not for me. I started off with a
lancewood longbow, then I got a
steel bow, then I had a Criteria bow.
Later on I used a custom made
Hoyt Pro-Medallist in Brazilian
rosewood, absolutely beautiful.
And I have a unique bow. I called
in at Border Bows near Kelso looking
for a Border Lightning field bow but
they had stopped making them.
However the bowyer found the
prototype limbs and a damaged
riser in a scrap bin and after a little
bit of work I ended up with a Border
Lightning made from the very first
limbs and the very last riser. Reflecting on past
achievements
When former national champion Ian
Dixon passed away earlier this year,
it prompted Bill Terry to reflect on the
achievements of his friend and some
of those archers who have helped to
shape our sport.
Ian won the Grand National Archery
Meeting in 1966, scoring 975 on the first
day and 910 on the second, beating
rivals Paul Taylor, Ron Bishop and
at Oxford but also at Winchester at the
Southern Counties Archery Meeting
in May held in adverse weather
conditions over two days to become
the Southern Counties Champion with
R. Bishop, J.Thornton, C. Parker, J. Davis
and G. Sykes, following in that order who
jointly set the gold standard for a future
generation of archers.
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
Not your
typical archer?
Don’t let Shayla hear you say that!
S
hayla Cosham has being seeing
doctors since she was eight. She
used to fall over a lot, had trouble
with balance and co-ordination and was
eventually diagnosed with joint
hypermobility disorder. It might not seem
the most promising start for an archer –
but don’t let her hear you say that!
The condition means her muscles have
to work harder than normal and tire more
quickly. She has distal finger joint
hypermobility which makes her grip
weaker and shortened Achilles tendons.
That leads to balance problems. She also
has scoliosis.
“To sum up,” said the 15-year-old,“I was
not your typical archer.Tired very easily,
muscles not very strong, no balance, no
co-ordination, standing on tiptoes and a
curved spine! So what happened
between then and now? As a Girl Guide, I
took part in an archery taster session.
“I thoroughly enjoyed it and, after some
research, we found our local club,
Eastbourne Archers. We arranged for me
Bill said: “Jared Ian Dixon started his
archery career in 1951 and joined
the Bath Archers. He purchased a
laminated Black Mamba bow, and
progressed to a tubular steel bow
inspired, no doubt, by a Hythe archer,
Jack Collier, who became national
champion in 1954 at the age of 26.
“Jack’s success was noted for his
single score on the second day York
Round at the Grand National Archery
Meeting achieving a score of 913 with
141 hits shooting a basic steel Falcon
bow with its rudimentary sight setting a
UK and world record. Jack’s fame would
have commanded Ian’s respect and
admiration as with other countless
archers of that era.”
Using just a 40lb Hoyt Medallist recurve
bow, Ian won county titles and set a new
record at the Guildford Open Acorn
Tournament.That event showcased
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
another rising star, Pauline Edwards.
In 1967 he won silver and helped the
British team to bronze at the World
Archery Championships. Bill said: “Earl
Hoyt was in attendance from America
and was so impressed with Ian’s
shooting ability he undertook to design
a bow for him which he called the ProCustom Hoyt.” Ian also won team gold
at the European Championships and
set a world record York round with a
score of 1,097.
In 1969 he ranked fourth in GB trials
for the World Championships. Only the
top three archers were funded, so he
paid his own way and came home
with individual bronze. His last
international match was in Malta in
1972. He finished second.
Bill said: “He was an outstanding
archer who was unassuming and
modest in his success.” to go along and meet one of the junior
coaches, Paul Bridge.
“When I first joined, I wasn’t sure what to
expect. I wasn’t sure how well I would
cope. I decided to see how I went but I
had so much fun. I’ll admit I wasn’t
brilliant. I mean, I was glad to hit
something. It was even better if it was a
target (not necessarily the correct one!)
“But I was enjoying myself. My condition
means that I still tire, especially during
long shoots and rounds, as my muscles
have to work much harder to keep my
joints stable and I have to really
concentrate on the little things.
Sometimes I have to curl my fingers
around the string more than I should, to
keep it drawn, which doesn’t make for a
clean release but, like with many other
things, I have had to adapt.”
Since then she has achieved Bowman
status, the scoliosis has settled, her
muscles are getting stonger – but now
she has a new problem. Her ankles and
knees are starting to give.
“The fact that archery has helped with
my condition is pretty amazing,” she said.
“If you had told me when I began that I
would be now shooting at 50 yards and
hitting that target, I would have not
believed it. I proved myself wrong. I hope
to prove myself wrong again many times.”
So how did coach Paul help? He said:
“Her muscular disability reminded me of
some types of cerebral palsy where the
greater the limb extension the greater
the instability.” He started by giving her
the support she needed and working
on a good draw line, muscle memory
and control.Then they concentrated on
getting the arrows going in the right
direction. She tired easily but Paul had
reckoned without her determination.
There is still work to do but he could
not be prouder.“Every classification
achievement was so amazing. I thought
Bowman was clearly out of her reach –
not so, it took some time coming but
was probably the most memorable
award I have ever given.” PEOPLE

A life devoted
to archery
Arthur Credland is Archery GB’s official
historian – and he wants to hear from you.
Contact him at [email protected]
Here he looks at the achievements of Henry Walrond
H
enry Walrond (1841-1917) was
a colonel in the 4th Battalion
Devonshire Regiment. He was
also a member of the Royal Toxophilite
Society, South Devon Archery Club and,
from 1868, was honorary secretary of
the Grand Western Archery Society. But
perhaps his greatest achievements
were as an editor.
He edited the Archers Register from
1864 to 1866 and from 1877 to its
demise in 1915. In doing so, he helped
chronicle the sport for half a century.
He recorded results from Grand
National Archery Meetings and
societies across Britain, America and
the colonies as well as compiling
biographies, notes on bows and
accessories and archery throughout
the ages.
He was a skilled archer and,
although he never won a national title,
won the Grand Western in 1866 and
1878, shot at the Crystal Palace, was a
key member of the Grand National
Archery Society committee and
judged many competitions.
He also worked closely with

Regiment

publishing house. They produced a
volume on archery in the Badminton
Library series in 1894, after the GNAM’s
50th jubilee meeting in
York. It contains a brief
history of the GNAM
and notes on some of
the early societies, archery
in the USA, early and primitive
archery and the technique of
shooting. A number of well-known
archers contributed chapters,
including championship winners
Major C Hawkins Fisher, the
Rev Eyre Hussey, and 23-times
women’s national champion
Alice B Legh.
In 1904 Walrond produced
a 32-page handy pocket
guide – Archery for beginners –
that was in demand for many
years. Chrystine Philips issued a reprint in
1935, to fulfil a real need “as otherwise
there was no simple book of instruction
on archery to put in the hands of
beginners.” It also demonstrated a
pioneering use of cinematography to
record the sequence of drawing,
nocking and releasing.

1921 in memory of Henry Walrond.
Initially it was awarded for the highest
female score in the county
competition but later went
to the county team of
women archers
His association with
Longman also led to the
publication of William Butt’s
update of Ford’s The theory and
practice of archery (1887), and Sir
Ralph Payne-Gallwey’s The
Crossbow (1903).
Longman won the national
championship in 1883 at
Cheltenham, and in 1884 was
seventh in the Grand
Leamington, third at the Crystal
Palace, and third at the Grand
Western. He was 12th at the 1884
GNAM at Windsor, and ninth at the
Grand Leamington in 1885. Otherwise
he concentrated on shooting at the
Tox and won the Crunden Bugle in
1889. He tested the capabilities of the
longbow and, in 1884, shot an arrow
286 yards using a 62lb Aldred bow. Animatograph series of Walrond shooting: Archery for beginners (1904)

A nice little earner!
Fun – and fortune – at Glamorgan
Mud everywhere!
T
FIELD
here was a welcome in Wales
and a victory for the home team
at the Junior Field Archery
Championships. The event – a World
Archery 24 combined Arrowhead
round – was hosted by Pentref Bowmen.
Wales won the home nations
competition – and took most of the
individual titles too.
Welsh team manager Emily Williams
said: “I couldn't be prouder of the
Welsh juniors, they all stayed focused
the entire weekend and shot brilliantly.
There were no complaints about any of
their behaviour – and with some very
young competitors taking part it shows
how dedicated to the sport they all
are! I hear similar things about the
non-Welsh competitors too, which
reassures me the future of the sport is
in good hands.” 16
T
here was mud, rivers of water
in the clubhouse, laughter...
and near bankruptcy for one
dad at the Glamorgan and Open
Field Championships.
It was held at the Glyncornel Archery
Centre and was, according to Kate
Kinchen: “A time to catch up with
friends, trot out our shiny new kit and
see if the hard work has paid off and
we could improve on the scores we
got last year.”
She said: “Field archery has great
appeal and every competition yields
some heart-warming stories. This year
was no exception and the stealer
of hearts at the Glamorgan
Championships 2015 was little Daniel
Vodden. He was attending his first ever
shoot, watched over by father Neil,
who proudly informed me at one of his
tea-tent stops that little Daniel was
bankrupting him.
“Having promised his son 50p for
every X he scored it turned out Daniel
was rather good, no doubt following in
his father’s footsteps, and had racked
up a pretty sizeable kitty by halfway
round the course.”
There were new faces at the
competition, including students who
took part in Pentref Bowmen’s field
introduction course. There were
personal bests, a couple of national
records fell and Kathy Denny turned
up on the Saturday with a new
American flatbow. She left with her bow,
national records for mixed and double
mixed rounds and a huge smile.
Kate said: “That, in essence, is the
heart of field archery. Despite the
horrible weather and the pools of
mud, everyone kept smiling and
having a great time. Archers were
appearing out of the woods
resembling muddy drowned rats and
trailing rivers of water through the
clubhouse as it drained off their
waterproofs. But, by the time they had
a cuppa and a slice of cake, the
smiles were back and they were
laughing about the weather and
regaling each other with tales of the
quickmud on target 12!” A warm Welsh welcome
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
JUNIORS
magine you were invited to shoot in
the Easton Junior Outdoor Archery
Development Nationals, part of the
US National Target Championships in
Alabama. It would be rude to turn it
down, wouldn’t it?
So when 13-year-old Joe Fairburn
from Leeds was invited to take part by
USA Archery, he could hardly say no.
It followed a chat between his dad
Colin and Olympian Rick McKinney
and was just the start of an American
adventure that ended with him
picking up a couple of really
good souvenirs...
Here’s Joe’s story:
The event was held in Decatur,
Alabama, in a purpose-built soccer
venue that had been divided into four
separate shooting fields and a finals
field. Wow, what a fantastic place!
The weather was hot and humid. It
rarely dropped below 86F (30C) and
often was well into the 90s. We had
lots of rain and the ground was
permanently sodden. There were also
lots of thunderstorms and lightning
strikes too, which delayed the start of
the qualification rounds. That meant
on day two we ended up shooting
under floodlights – a first for most
people, including Brady Ellison!
I met some great people and
made lots of new friends. There were
archers from all over the USA
including a large group of Korean
Americans, archers from Chinese
18
Taipei, Mexico, Canada and me from
GB! Everyone was so friendly and
helpful, the tournament was so well
organised and the judges were
brilliant (and funny).
In qualification I shot 1,306. That
was joint second (but I was ranked
fourth as it went down to Xs). There
were only 12 points separating three
of us on 1,306 and the leader. On the
second day of qualification I shot a
PB score of 660, which was the highest
of the day.
I came away with the gold medal
for the highest qualification score by
a visitor and an individual bronze
medal for the elimination round.
On the Sunday there was a team
event, which was great fun. All the
archers in each category were
assigned two team mates selected
according to qualification so that, in
theory, we were all pretty equal. One of
my team had gone home the night
before so we drafted in a barebow
archer. Anyhow, he was pretty good
and, had it not been for the wind
getting up in our semi final match and
blowing one of his fletched arrows off to
the left, we would have been shooting
for gold. The semi went to a one-arrow
shoot off and ours were just a little bit
further away from the cross. The bronze
medal match was close but we just lost
out – but it was fun all the same.
I had a brilliant time in the USA and
had I been a US citizen I would have
been awarded the title of JOAD
Supreme Champion for my age
category (under 15), so I came home
really pleased with my performance. ! ! !! ! !!!!
! !!!! ! !! !!! old winter shoots mean only one thing to juniors across the
Northern Counties – it’s time to take part in the region’s postal
competition. And it’s a great way to stay in practice for summer too!
It is run over five months – and this year 12 Nethermoss juniors have
been busy celebrating. Michael Rice (under-10 recurve), Logan Batt
(under-12 compound), Heather Hughes (under-14 recurve) and
Tom Rice (under-14 compound) all won gold medals.
There were smiles too for Harrison Moss (under-14 recurve),
Georgia Maryon and Kieran Shirley (under-16 recurves), who all took
silver. And Georgia Gray, who had only been shooting for a few
months and was taking part in her first competition, claimed
under-12 recurve bronze!
Tom also clinched cadet compound gold in the North Cheshire
Bowmen Double WA Star.
And they did pretty well at the Lancashire Junior Championships
too. Georgia Gray added to her medals haul by claiming silver in
her first outdoor competition. Ten-year-old Michael Rice had never
shot a Bristol before – but that didn’t stop him winning. And his
elder brother Tom broke a Lancashire record to become the
county’s under-16s compound champion.
It was also a good day for Georgia Maryon who took the
under-16s trophy and Heather Hughes, who won bronze. Photos by Robin Maryo

xtremes of weather could not
keep 27 archers from across
Durham and Northumberland away
from the second Killingworth Juniors’
shoot – and it was quite a day.
ouisa Piper turned 12 and, a few
days later, took part in her first
Metric 4, scoring 1,314. As if that wasn’t
enough, she also managed to shoot
this perfectly arranged three-gold end.
Her mum Helen said: “It made us, the
judges and her fellow competitors
giggle and we thought it might make
you smile too.” Five new county records were
set, club records tumbled and
many of those taking part chalked
up new personal bests.
Julie Bews, of Killingworth Juniors,
said: “Everyone appeared to have
a great time, new friends were
made and the standard of
behaviour was excellent – all of
the young archers who took part
were a credit to themselves, their
families and their clubs.” JUNIORS
When Katie Clarke made her
shot, she didn’t quite expect this
to be the result. The 17-year-old,
who is a member of Telford
Archers, was shooting on
Bowbrook Archers’ field when
it happened.
No-one is quite sure how she did
it – but they are now thinking about
taking up limbo dancing! 20
wo more young archers will be heading to the Commonwealth Youth
Games, which are being held in Samoa in September.
Sixteen-year-old Charlotte Harris will be
representing the Isle of Man. She started
shooting in 2008 and is one of only
seven athletes who will be representing
the island at the Games.
She said: “I am looking forward to
experiencing new cultures through a
shared sport.”

Why you should
consider specialisms
ontarget is Archery GB’s club
development programme, providing a
framework and structure for growth.
Development Manager, Arran Coggan,
talks to two clubs that have embraced
the ontarget programme and asks
what it has done for them.
Bowmen of Pendle
and Samlesbury
P&S has its own land and an indoor
shooting range. Archers range from
recreational to highly competitive – all
of whom have 24-hour access, said
Diane Clarke.
There is a dedicated committee and
enthusiastic coaches. We run beginner
courses, try archery events, work with
schools and visiting parties and our
coaches develop the standard of
archers within the club.
DEVELOPMENT: CLUB PROFILES
Why the ontarget specialism?
It covered (mainly) what the club was
doing anyway, so it seemed a logical
progression. It also gives us the validity
to help other clubs who want to
achieve similar results.
Goldcrest gets all the
community (even the little
ones) involved!
22
Benefits?
We have been able to access funding.
The specialisms have given us the
opportunity to reach new members.
We are developing a partnership with
a local college and have schools
and community groups coming to
the club. We also take archery out into
the community.
Future plans?
To grow naturally, encourage our
archers to raise their game and serve
the needs of our members. To respond
to the wider community. To follow the
club action plan.
Advice for clubs looking at
specialisms?
Go for it. Encourage development of
coaching within the club.This will allow
you to focus on best practice and
make changes, which can only improve
things for your archers and for archery
P&S is a Community and Young
People specialist club. It is now
embarking on its Performance
specialism. www.bowmen.co.uk
Goldcrest Archers
Started in 2011 with three members,
it now has an indoor shooting range
with a separate room for beginners’
courses. Members have 24/7 access.
“We have a fantastic clout archery
club,” said Peter Gregory.“One
member, Hazel Chaisty, is part of the
GB para squad.”
Why the ontarget specialism?
We signed up because we thought
we ticked all the boxes and we do a
lot for the community. The programme
enabled us to stand out and help
people who might be searching for
a club.
For more information on the ontarget programme and
how your club could benefit, search for ontarget on
the Archery GB website or contact Arran Coggan on
07525 233592 or at [email protected]
Benefits?
ontarget is fantastic. We received a
grant for much needed beginners’
course equipment. New equipment
makes the novice feel like they are
taking part at a real archery club
rather than a community centre.
Future plans?
Continue to grow and raise archers’
standards of shooting with the help of
our coaches. One plan is to try and
get local cubs and scouts to hold a
competition and, hopefully make it an
annual event.
Advice for clubs looking at
specialisms?
Keep your club friendly, active and
interesting. Don't let it become
stagnant. Hold club competitions but
have coaches on hand to help any
level of archer – and always encourage
the new members to have fun.

banter – between P&S and Bowmen of Bruntwood
Who will be crowned?
Club competition finalists start to emerge
A
s the outdoor season draws to a
close, four teams will be battling
to be crowned the 2015
ontarget club champions.
The knockout competition, which
aims to raise participation, has been
running since 2013. It is a fun way to
get to know other clubs – but the
competition is deadly serious and the
finalists are starting to emerge.
Among them are Targetcraft Archers,
Aardwolf Archers, Oxford Archers – for
the second year running – and Norton
Archers. Other matches included
Canterbury Archers v Guildford Archers,
Barnstaple Archery Club v Bride Valley
Junior Archers, Cleve Archers at home
to Six Towns Company of Archers and
Derwent Archers v Bowmen of Pendle
and Samlesbury.
The winners will shoot for the
ontarget Club Competition trophy and
£500 towards club development.
The runners up will receive a
commemorative plate and £250.
“I am really looking forward to the
finals,” said Arran Coggan,
Development Manager – Participation.
“The ontarget Club Competition
continues to grow in numbers and
clubs and archers are enthusiastically
competing to become national
club winners!”

Six reasons why...
a friendly society could be the right place
for your savings
D
eciding where to save your
money can be daunting when
there are so many different
types of financial institutions to choose
from. Read on, or take a look at
Foresters Friendly Society’s video at
www.forestersfriendlysociety.co.uk/
friendly-societies, to find out more
about what makes Foresters different to
other financial providers.
1
They have a long track
record. Friendly societies are
one of the oldest types of
financial services providers and
have been around for hundreds of
years. The original idea was simple –
that if a group of people
contributed to a mutual fund, they
could receive financial and
benevolence support when they
needed it – for example, in times of
ill health. This was often the only way
that a working person could receive
help before the introduction of the
welfare state.
2
They focus on affordable
saving. Foresters offers a
range of medium to long-term
savings and investment plans,
which are simple and affordable.
The aim is to make saving for the
future an attainable goal for as
many people as possible.
3
Profits go back to their
members. Another benefit of
mutual status is that Foresters
is owned by its members, which
means there are no shareholders to
pay. Instead, profits are used for the
benefit of members, for example in
the form of policy payouts, their
Foresters Extras membership
benefits package, or by re-investing
them to enhance the customer
service they provide.
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
4
A responsible approach to
money. Because Foresters is
owned by and operated for its
members, it takes a responsible,
long-term approach to savings and
investments. Its With Profits savings
plans sit comfortably between
no-risk cash savings and higher-risk
stocks and shares and are an
option for anyone who wants to
save regularly and give their money
an opportunity to grow. Find out
more about With Profits at
www.forestersfriendlysociety.co.uk
/mr-money.
5
Extra tax-free savings
options. Friendly societies
have a unique legal status,
and this allows them to offer
tax-exempt savings products that
aren’t available from many other
financial providers.
6
They want to help people to
help themselves. When you
take out a savings plan with
Foresters, you become a member,
which means that not only do you
have access to a range of
discretionary benefits at no extra
cost but that you can even have an
input in to how they are run.
Please note:
• This article is intended to provide
information, not financial advice, to
help you make an informed decision
about savings and investments.
Foresters Friendly Society does not
offer financial advice.You should
contact a financial adviser, who
may charge a fee, if you want
financial advice.
• For some products you may get
back less than you have paid in.
• Tax rules may change in the
future and depend on
individual circumstances.
• The membership benefits Foresters
provide aren't regulated and are
regularly reviewed by them to ensure
they are relevant to their members.

Birthday on
back burner...
Big Weekend more important to Keith!
Birthday boy Keith Ritson in action at Bowmen of Backworth
Celtic Harmony’s Big Weekend event
BIG WEEKEND
E
ighty clubs introduced people
around the country to archery
during the Big Weekend, kicking
off the summer in style. In the last
issue we highlighted many of the
clubs that took part. Here we look at
some of the rest.
Coach Keith Ritson of the Bowmen
of Backworth put his 70th birthday
celebrations on the back burner so
that he could help introduce members
of his community to our sport. The
sun shone and the crowds grew
throughout the day, attracted by the
28
chance to have a go and watch
demonstrations of recurve, compound,
longbows and horse bows staged by
members throughout the event and
organised by Keith’s wife, Maureen.
There was also cake... lots of it.
That, plus more than 20 people
asking about beginners’ courses,
made it quite a day.
People kept coming back for more
at Waterside Archers’ Big Weekend
event in Hampshire. The result was
great reviews on Facebook – and so
many people picking up forms for
beginners’ courses that the club
might have to set up an extra one to
cope with demand.
The chance to try archery in an Iron
Age settlement and educational
centre proved hard to resist for
people around Hertford. More than
100 people took part in Celtic
Harmony Archers’ Big Weekend event
Chairman Luca Parella said: “It was
great to see so many people come
and have a go. We had a great time
sharing our passion for archery and
hope that we might have inspired
someone to get involved in the sport
in the future.”
The Big Weekend was supported by
Archery GB’s Performance Partner,

Paralympian Kathy helps next generation
F
ive-time Paralympian Kathy
Critchlow-Smith has retired from
international competition and is
now helping the next generation
of archers.
Kathy, along with county coach
Gary Critchlow-Smith, is running classes
at SportsAble, an award-winning
multi-sports charity for the disabled in
Berkshire. Her aim is to encourage
people of all ages and abilities to really
fall in love with archery.“It’s the best
sport there is!” she says.“Once you try it,
you’ll be addicted.”
She and Gary are keen to get
disabled archers out of their comfort
zone and their list of protégés is
growing fast – including one novice
who has been selected for
development for Tokyo 2020.
Kathy represented Team GB in
Barcelona, Atlanta, Sydney, Athens
and Beijing. She said: “I have many
memories of my five Paralympic
Games. I suppose that the first one,
Barcelona, stands out because the
opening ceremony was unlike anything
I’d been a part of before. I didn’t know
anything about the Paralympics before
then and to enter a stadium full of
70,000 people was an enormous
shock – but a very pleasant one.
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
“The Sydney Games were probably
the most meaningful. I’d had some
surgery in 1999 and didn’t think I was
up to making the squad. But I did and
came away with two silver medals. The
Aussies take their sport very seriously
and were very supportive of us.
“It was a wonderful experience.
When you go to the Paralympics it’s like
you’re part of this great big family. The
atmosphere is incredible. I’ve been to
many World and European
Championships but there is
something special about the
Team GB spirit at the Paralympics.
Plus, you are representing
your country, which is an
enormous privilege.
“What inspires me is
knowing that I could always
do better. I always have
something else to be
working towards and that
drives me. Taking part in
Paralympic Games is
a very humbling
experience. Some
competitors are very
disabled and yet are
such amazing
athletes and it is
inspiring to be around
them. Also, you owe it to all the people
who have had an input in your
training and everything that you do
so you do the best that you can for
them as well.
“To athletes just starting out I would
say have a dream but before you go
down that route write everything
down. Write down the steps you’ve got
to take to get to county level, national
level and so on. Nothing is impossible.
Be determined, and committed and
have absolute dedication to your
sport. It takes an awful lot of effort,
but it’s worth it.”
SportsAble’s Chairman, Vivienne
Davies, said: “We are so lucky to
have Kathy and Gary on board
at SportsAble. They are using their
many years of international expertise
to help people discover, understand
and develop a passion and skill
for archery.
As well as working with individuals
on personal goals they are helping
other coaches with their development
as well. They are really helping us
develop local talent and to further
develop the sport in our area.” FEATURE

John with some of his medals
Archery, autism
and John
Why it’s always better to say yes you can
FEATURE
W
hen John Seabury wanted
to have a go at archery his
mum, Marese, approached
an after school club. There was one
complication. John has autism – but
that was not going to stop him.
Jonathan Walton runs the
after-school archery club at the Mary
Webb Specialist Science College in
Shropshire. It has an offshoot of the
Severndale Specialist Academy on
site, which takes students with a wide
variety of learning difficulties.
The pupils integrate well but
Jonathan, of Bowbrook Archers, was a
little taken aback when approached
by Marese. He was even more taken
aback – and very proud – when John
later went on to win medals.
“John came along with his mum and
she said he would like to have a go –
and I am a great believer in finding a
reason to say ‘yes’ rather than ‘no’.
“John does have considerable
learning difficulties and is quite
strongly on the autistic spectrum.
But of course we said yes and he
became part of the club, slowly but
surely becoming a competent archer.
32
“Mum Marese was always there
to aid the process but it became
clear that archery was a sport that
suited John.
“After a year of shooting he didn’t
need much persuading to enter the
Shropshire County Clout competition,
shooting at 120 yards. He performed
well and came away with a medal –
then repeated the exercise a year
later shooting the next distance up.”
He was part of the college archery
team that won last year’s Shropshire
County Games KS3-4 competition
and joined Bowbrook Archers. He won
the club’s junior handicap trophy
and, as his confidence grew, he
decided he wanted to take part in
‘It would have
been all too easy
two years ago so
say no. That would
have been

metres. He has taken part in two –
and won medals at both.
This year he was once again
selected for the School Games – and
his biggest struggle was getting used
to shooting at 20 yards again. But he
managed it and came top in the
target competition, second in the
clout and helped his Mary Webb
team mates retain the county title.
“John on the shooting line is a
different person from when he is away
from archery,” said Jonathan. “I am
confident that by finding a sport
where he can excel on a completely
level playing field with other archers
who do not have his difficulties, it has
made a significant difference to
John’s outlook.
“It would have been all too easy two
years ago so say ‘no, I really don’t think
that autism and archery will go together.’
It would have been unforgiveable to
have taken that approach – and we
never will now we have seen just how
you can make such a difference by
saying ‘yes, you can do it’.” ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015

on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May.
David Harrison, Archery GB
Chairman said: “We are extremely
excited and honoured to be hosting
such a prestigious event within the
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
archery calendar. Nottingham has
archery embedded in its history
and has successfully hosted The
Nottingham Building Society Archery
GB National Series Finals for the past
three years. This is the perfect location
for the World Archery European
Outdoor Target Championships to
take place.
“The tournament will give our
members and the residents of
Nottingham, the opportunity to watch
world-class athletes compete, just
months before the Rio 2016 Olympics.
In particular, the head-to-head finals
are sure to win over the crowds with
nail-biting shoot-offs and precision
skills on show. It will be fantastic to
have a large home crowd rooting for
Archery GB’s archers as they tackle
one of the last qualifiers for European
archers to win places at Rio 2016.”

Sheer potential
Youth Festival promises much for the future
TALENT: YOUTH FESTIVAL
H
undreds of archers descended on Lilleshall for the 2015
Youth Festival for a week that included benchmarking,
profiling and a week of truly exciting shooting as
Britain’s brightest young prospects went head to head.
It coincided with some great news – that Sport England had
awarded additional investment into Archery GB’s England
Talent Pathway – but that was just the icing on the cake. What
really shone through was the sheer potential among the UK’s
young archers.
Archery GB Events and Facility Manager, Jon Nott said:
“The festival is clearly a huge learning experience in this
format for the younger performers who all expressed that they
want opportunities to compete, to better prepare them for
such international tournaments in the future.”
And they did not squander their chances. It was hardfought all the way and resulted in some spectacular finals.
But more than that, it was vibrant, competitive, fun, noisy – and
a great way to share knowledge and experience.
It is turning in to one of the major
events in the youth calendar,
giving the archers a real sense of
what life could be like really like as
an international.
Performance Pathway Manager,
Ceri Ann Davies said: “The event is
growing in stature and is well
supported by archers, parents and
the event delivery team at Archery
GB. It’s exciting to see the
performances of our youth archers
improving each year, to the point
where now some of the junior
head to head’s are truly world
class. We will continue to grow this
event next year.” 34

Archers do UK islands proud
TOURNAMENTS: NATWEST ISLAND GAMES
A
rchery was one of the main
attractions at a spectacular
Natwest Island Games in Jersey
– and it resulted in an impressive medal
haul for UK competitors.
The Isle of Wight topped the table
with three golds, a silver and a bronze
and Guernsey took third spot with a
total of eight medals. Hosts Jersey were
hot on their heels with five while the
Isle of Man earned four and Orkney
finished with two.
There was a clean sweep in the
recurve team competition as the Isle of
Wight pipped Jersey to the gold medal
and Guernsey beat Åland 6-2 to take
bronze. Jersey also took silver in the
compound competition after being
narrowly beaten by the Faroe Islands.The
Isle of Wight was just squeezed out of
bronze position by rivals the Isle of Man.
There was a clean sweep for the UK’s
compound women in the individual
competition. Jersey’s Lucy O’Sullivan

beat Guernsey’s Gen
Witham to take gold,
with bronze going to
the Isle of Man’s Kirsten
George. Lee Grace
of the Isle of Wight
took bronze in the
men’s competition.
Jersey’s second
individual gold went to
recurve archer Mark
Renouf and the women’s recurve final
was an all-Guernsey affair as Lisa Gray
beat Chantelle Goubert 6-0 to take gold.
A second competition – a single FITA –
resulted another medal haul.The UK
dominated the individual compound
category with gold for the Isle of Man’s
Aalin George, silver for Jersey’s Lucy

Guernsey took the women’s title as Manx
archer Karen Lott won silver.
In the team competition, recurve gold
went to the Isle of Man while Guernsey
won silver. In the compound
competition, silver went to the Isle of
Wight and Guernsey took bronze.
Martin Pomroy of the Archery
Association of Jersey said: “The first three
days’ shooting were held in very high
temperatures, requiring buckets of ice to
cool the competitors.That was halted
by rain and thunder, before the sun
re-emerged and shooting continued.
“Competition was hotly (literally)
contested by a hundred archers from
Falklands and Bermuda in the south
and Faroes, Gotland and Åland in the
north. Impressive scoring sparked a lot
of interest among spectators and it led
to several new Island Games records,
many personal bests and lots of awards
being claimed.” ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015

just won medals and broken a world record at the Para worldranking event in Holland – and was ready for anything. She did
not disappoint.
She broke, subject to ratification, the W1 women’s 70-metre, 60-metre,
30-metre and full 1440 world and UK records over the weekend.
A total of 140 archers took full advantage of sunny but windy
conditions for the invitation-only event at Lilleshall. They also took the
opportunity to remember Lez Newsome, Jean Page and Alan Lake with a
minute’s silence.
The event’s format was a ranking round, 70 metres for recurves and
longbows and 50 metres for compounds on Saturday, followed
by an individual head to head. On Sunday, men and women
from all disciplines shot a World Archery 1440 Star round.
The UK Masters titles were based on performance over the
three rounds.
After two days of intense competition, the overall winners were:
1. Recurve: Ashe Morgan and Naomi Folkard
2. Compound: Neil Bridgewater and Andrea Gales
3. Longbow: Chris Ellis and Mandy Linn

Scotland’s compounders beat England 7864-6715 but the outcome in the recurve
competition was reversed as England beat Scotland 7275-6868.
Northern Ireland won the men’s recurve division and Scotland took compound
honours. England’s women won both recurve and compound divisions with
Scotland taking silver.
There was a spectacular finish to
the competition as two pipers in
full highland dress marched on to
the field to serenade the archers.
And there was more drama on
Sunday as individual competitors
went head-to-head. The compound

We are already planning for next

more importantly, it’s about space
and facilities.

rewarded by fantastic competition,

But the main focus was on the

the way as the 2015 women’s
champions reclaimed titles they last
held in 2010 – and the men seized
victory at their first attempt! Patrick
Huston and Naomi Folkard were
crowned recurve champions while
Nichola Simpson and Neil Bridgewater
won the right to call themselves
Britain’s top compound archers.
Patrick later said: “The thing I’m really
happy about and the thing that I was

shot a lot of tens. I managed to achieve
this aim and I’m so happy that I won!”
Naomi was delighted too.“I shot

Silver medals went to rising stars
Bryony Pitman and Kieran Slater while
defending champions Amy Oliver and
Larry Godfrey took bronze.
And the momentum carried on into
the compound finals. Last year’s
champions, Adam Ravenscroft and
Naomi Jones also had to be satisfied
with bronze while Andrea Gales and
Simon Froggatt claimed silver medals.
Champion Nichola later said: “I’m in
shock! I had no expectations. I mean
I’m easing off competition a bit now, so
I said if I make the finals, I’m just going
to enjoy it!”
And Neil said: “The gold medal
match went by in a flash. I was so
focused on the gold, the first I noticed
anything was when I shot a nine and
the audience gasped! I had seven
tens in a row, and to finish on 146 in
the gold match, you can’t really ask
for better than that.”
Archery’s future stars were in action

smashing performance by eventual
winner Patrick Huston at Exmouth. The

Archers from 32 clubs took part,
shooting 12 arrows at the puzzle piece

when they beat Italy 150-148 earlier in
the competition.
In the team categories, compound
juniors Matthew Hall, Dean Hamilton
and Sam Jeram ended in second
spot while Daisy Clark, Kirsten George
and Aalin George topped their
leader board.
Compound cadets James Howse,
Luke Ralls and Jake Walsh finished top
of their class. And Rebecca Lennon,
Elizabeth Martel, Lucy Mason also
took gold. There was a creditable
fourth place for recurve cadets Emily
Bryant, Lizzy Warner and Eleanor Piper
who were edged out by Turkey.
And, overall in the Europa Cup,
cadets Rebecca Lennon came first,
Lucy Mason was second and James
Howse third. Junior Daisy Clark was
second with Aalin George third. Kieran shot an eight but the
Frenchman’s arrow edged into the
nine, allowing him to progress into
the quarter finals.
There was a battle royal as Nicky
Hunt fought to progress to the last 16
of the championships. She took the
first end from eighth seed Natalia
Erdynieva 25-22. The Russian pulled
back, winning the next two sets but
then Nicky stepped up a gear to
draw level. However, Erdynieva took
the final set to win 6-4 overall.
And there was intense
competition in the team category as
Naomi Folkard, Nicky Hunt and Amy
Oliver went head to head with
Georgia. It was nip and tuck all the
way as Great Britain drew the first set
and won the second but Georgia
edged ahead in the third and won
the fourth by a single point, giving
them a 5-3 victory and a place in
the quarter finals. What a way
to celebrate!
Extra twist to
nine-medal haul
J

Nove Mesto – and he marked his big
day by winning a silver medal!
He won other medals too, along with
his triumphant teammates. He took
mixed team bronze with Jodie
Grinham and compound team bronze
with Mikey Hall and John Walker.
But they were not the only ones
celebrating. John Walker and Jo Frith
were in unbeatable form in their W1
mixed final. They defeated Russia
152-158 to take the title. And there was
a clean sweep in the individual finals.
Our W1 women were always going to
be in the medals. It was just a question
of who won what. In the end it was
Jessica Stretton who hit sparkling form
at just the right moment, beating
teammate Jo Frith into second place.
Vicky Jenkins won the bronze.
There was silver for the recurve men’s

Hard-fought victories at BUCS Outdoors
O
xford and Warwick
universities have completed
a spectacular double. The
Oxford women and Warwick’s men
won their BUCS Outdoor team
competitions – just as they did at this
year’s indoor championships!
More than 350 archers applied for
only 280 spaces, which meant that
universities each had to be limited to
11 archers for the championships,
held at Lilleshall. It is the blue riband
event of the higher education
50
archery calendar and students from
across the country compete for BUCS
points in a two-day event.
Entrants shot a World Archery 1440
Star on Saturday and there was a
separate novice category with a
mixed non-compound team event.
On Sunday it was the BUCS head to
head event.
Experience showed as Warwick’s
men beat Edinburgh 3475-3412.
Oxford’s women defeated rivals
Cambridge 3343-3267. Birmingham
took third spot in both competitions.
Charlie Birch, Oxford women’s team
captain, said: “I am very proud of my
team’s performance, both as a team
and as individuals. To take home both
titles is an amazing achievement!”
Southampton won the novice title
for archers in their first year in archery
on 3140.
In the individual competitions, Ashe
Morgan (Birmingham) and Maryia
Karpiyevich (Cambridge) took both
the World Archery 1440 and 720
recurve titles while Hope Greenwood
(Edinburgh) did the double in the
compound categories. Thomas Taylor
(Coventry) took the 1440 men’s
compound honours.
Ian Fleming (MMU Cheshire) and
Emily Williams (South Wales) won the
1440 longbow competition while
Elizabeth Rees (Bath) and Huw
Vaughan-Jackson (Edinburgh) took
the barebow titles. Huw also won
the barebow and longbow combined
720 honours.
Full results can be found at the BUCS

izzy Rees believes her maximumpoints haul in BUCS competitions
this year was the perfect way to
thank the University of Bath for
supporting her archery and
academic careers.
The sports performance student,
who has a Santander Sports
Scholarship, took gold and set a new
record. That followed on from her
success at the Indoor Championships.
“I’ve picked up maximum BUCS
points for Bath, which I am really
pleased about,” she said.
“Everyone here has been really
supportive and the scholarship has
been a massive help. Pretty much the
cost of my whole year of competing
equates to my scholarship, so I am
breaking even which is brilliant. That is
one less stress to worry about.
“I’ve just finished my second year
here and my lecturers have been
brilliant, they give me any time off I
need for competitions.
“I go to the gym here six days a
week and we have access to the
indoor running track every day if we
want it. It is ideal for training.”

NatWest Island Games

How do you handle
pressure? Compound
star Lucy O’Sullivan has
some top tips.
ADVICE ZONE
W
hat steps can you take to
cope with pressure? It could
be external pressure from a
parent, press and media or pressure
you put on yourself. The question is,
how do you handle it?
Everyone feels pressure at one time
or another – once you realise that, you
can start learning to roll with it. Trust
that it will happen and you can calm
yourself down when it does. Use nerves
to create a positive rather than a
negative impact on your shooting.
At the recent Island Games media
types kept describing me as the “Poster
Girl” for Jersey. That was the external
pressure. I kept telling myself that I
wasn’t, I was just there to shoot and do
my job. However I knew Jersey had
hyped up my last gold medal and
needed me to do it again. That was
the internal pressure.
So how did I cope in that gold
medal match? I kept telling myself I
was not the poster girl. (If you tell
yourself one thing enough times your
brain does actually start to believe it). I
also thought about all the times I had
been in high-pressure situations, like
my two wins at the National Series
finals and how I coped then. I find
once my adrenaline gets up I can
start having fun. Your brain is like a
filing cabinet. Once it has stored
information all you need to do is find
52
the file of how you coped best or felt
happiest with your shooting, and you
can recreate that feeling.
The last thing I did was to keep telling
myself how used to head-to-heads I
was – and that carried me through.
So the main points are
Practice in high-pressure situations.
The more you do it, the easier they
get. You know what you are doing
and you can turn the nerves into a
positive. Do this by:
1. Recreating high level matches by
shooting against someone who is
better than you.
2. Getting as much competition
experience as you can.
Focus on technique, not the
outcome. This helps with both types
of pressure. Do this by:
Working on the shot routine you build
up in your practice sessions. Think
about it the same way every time and
it becomes the norm. If negative
1
2
thoughts creep in, switch to automatic
pilot and your shot routine
Songs and buzzwords help. Repeat
them in your head to make you feel
positive during practice and use them
to keep pressure at bay.
Practice positive thinking. If you
think “don’t get an eight,” do you
get an eight? Usually. Your brain
will focus on what you are telling it
– so tell it what it needs to hear.
You are a good archer. You get
10s in practice. You will get 10s
in competition.
Practice and prepare. The
knowledge you have put the work
in breeds confidence and takes
the pressure off. You have prepared
thoroughly, now all you can do is
your best.
Be kind to yourself. If you haven’t
been able to put in the practice,
re-evaluate your expectations and
don’t expect to win. 3

Release issue or
target panic?
Archery GB compound
squad member Duncan
Busby is here to help with
queries on form, equipment
and technique.
Q
I recently bought a TRU Ball
Incredible release aid and set it
on the lightest setting so I could pull
through shots using back tension. It
allowed me to develop an
unanticipated release and I began to
build up a successful shot routine.
Now I cannot pull through shots
effectively. The pressure I need to place
on the thumb trigger to activate the
release has increased significantly and
I cannot execute a release using the
correct form.
I switched back to my previous
release aid, a Carter Target 4. The
problems disappeared and my shot
routine is back normal. Do you think
there is a problem with my new release
aid or is it more likely to be a
psychological issue?
A
The way you are executing your
shot is correct. Pulling against the
bows stop to set off the release aid is
the most consistent way to shoot.
Sometimes however, once archers
become used to a particular way of
shooting they can start to anticipate
their shot. This may be why the change
of release aid benefited your shooting.
This is a form of target panic. It does
not always present with a flinch or a
punched shot. It can cause you to
hang up on your release, leaving you
unable to execute a smooth and welltimed shot even when pulling hard
against the bow’s stops. Luckily it is an
easy fix with some blank boss shooting
and a little patience.
Set up a target around three to five
metres away, set up your bow set up as
normal and shoot at the blank boss
using the TRU Ball release aid.
Concentrate specifically on your
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
release, making sure you pull through
the shot smoothly using the correct
muscles in your back. Keep your release
hand as relaxed as possible.This will
allow the pressure to be transferred
from your thumb to the trigger more
consistently, reducing the chance of
increased tension and the likelihood of
hanging up on the shot. Keep shooting
blank boss until you have developed a
consistent, comfortable shooting
rhythm, then translate it to a target face.
This exercise refreshes your muscle
memory and helps to free up your shot
again. A few hundred arrows on a blank
boss is a great way of resolving issues
with your shot routine and polishing
up technique.
If you continue to have problems I
would recommend re-setting it by
following these instructions:
On the TRU Ball Incredible there is a
large set screw on the back. It allows
you to adjust the release’s sensitivity by
changing the internal spring. This
should always be turned clockwise so
that it’s tight.
There is also a smaller set screw that
adjusts the travel on the trigger. This is
secured by a lock screw which ensures
that the travel screw does not move.
The first thing you need to do is to
make sure the larger sensitivity screw is
in place and locked tight. Then, cock
the release so that it’s in the firing
position. Now, locate the smaller travel
screw and slowly turn it clockwise until
the release fires. Finally, turn the small
set screw counter-clockwise about 1/4
of a turn to re-set the release and
tighten the lock screw down to hold
the new setting in place.
If either screw has moved, even
slightly, it will make your release aid feel
and behave differently. Resetting a
release is quick and simple and I think
every compound archer should learn
how to do it. ADVICE ZONE: COMPOUND

Invest
wisely
One of Archery GB’s
rising stars, Patrick
Huston, answers your
recurve questions.
Q
It’s time to invest in my first
recurve kit. What should I be
looking for?
A
Doing it properly is not going to
be cheap – but it doesn’t have to
be that expensive either. You can get
everything you need for around £500
to £600 if you invest wisely.
In your first real set up you should be
looking for a riser, the limbs, a sight, a
pressure button, a rest, arrows, a quiver,
a tab, stabilisers, a v-bar and a clicker.
The biggest investment should be in
your riser. You can upgrade limbs when
moving up poundage but if spend
between £150 and £300 – or more –
on the riser, it will be perfect for most of
your archery career. A 25in riser will
suit most people above 5ft 6in and a
23in for those smaller.
ADVICE ZONE: RECURVE

54
Realistically your first limbs should
be cheap. Talk to your coach about
poundage but a rough idea would
be 28-32lb for men and 24-28lb for
women. Go cheap and cheerful with
this as you will want to go up in draw
weight within a few months. Long limbs
for 29in draw lengths and more,
medium 26-29in and short for
everything below. With the sight it is pretty much up to
you how much to spend. A top range
sight will last your entire career but you
could upgrade later. And invest wisely in
a pressure button. Cheaper models are
prone to coming loose and wearing
out. I would recommend a Shibuya DX
which costs £25 and will last as long as
you shoot.The Beiter button costs £80
and is capable of more fine
adjustment – great for top level archers
who want two identical set ups.
There is one rest I would
recommend – the Shibuya Ultima at
around £25. They are infinitely
adjustable for different sizes or arrows
and set ups, have one easy-to-use
Allen key to adjust, come with spare
sticky pads to change risers and
pretty much indestructible!
Be careful to buy the right spine of
arrows and have them cut to the right
length – especially if you are going to
use a clicker. Start with aluminiums and
upgrade as you progress. Make sure
you get the right spine by speaking to
an experienced archer or archery
shop specialists who will measure your
poundage and draw length.
In my opinion, clickers are crucial for
your development. To start with I would
recommend a magnetic clicker that
sits out in front of the bow. This way as
your draw length increases your arrows
will not be too short as they would be
with an on-bow clicker. Make sure to
speak to a coach when setting up
your clicker.
Invest in functionality when you buy
your quiver. Spend at least £25 and
ensure you have all the pockets and
storage you are going to need. And
look for a tab with a platform. It is best
to get to a shop and try them to see
what fits your hand best.
With stabilisers it is pretty much
personal choice. As a rough guide the
long rod should be about the same as
your arrow length. And don’t forget the
side rods and an adjustable v-bar. ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015

Q
A
NUTRITION
Super foods?
S
uper foods are in. People are
going mad for all sorts of things
from gogi berries to maca
powder and cacao nibs. However,
I was really taken aback when
someone said they had been told
that pasta is a super food. It is not.
Two things make super food. First, it
will have an unusually high nutrient
content: vitamins, minerals, enzymes
or good fats. Second, the nutrients will
be in a form the body can easily
absorb and use, called bio-available.
Take the avocado. This pear-shaped
fruit is packed with amino acids,
vitamins, minerals, enzymes and good
fats. I base my breakfast smoothie on
avocado. It is also great as part of a
salad. Pasta is nothing but wheat
starch with a bit of protein, a few
minerals and hardly any vitamins.
Like bread or Yorkshire pudding, it’s
padding and will cause weight gain
without boosting your health.
The goodness has diminished
drastically in our modern diet. Real
super foods like coconut, hemp, chia
and flax seeds, spirulina and freshly
sprouted seeds can help to fill the
gap and give you a boost. Of
course a few gogi berries won’t
make up for a poor diet so build a
solid foundation and always aim to
eat well. For more information go to
www.learntoeatwell.co.uk ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
Which is better, pile sighting or
sighting with a band?
This is personal choice. Like
anything, you have to try
changes out for several weeks to see
if they have any benefit. If you do
decide to use a band, choose a thin
band of strong colour contrast to
bow and target. Thick bands do not
give a definite enough sight picture
and O-rings tend to roll too easily,
making minute adjustment difficult.
Q
What do you do if you are
struggling to reach the
longest distance?
A
If your arrows are falling just
short of the target, despite how
high you raise your bow arm, there
are two things you can look at to
gain another 10 yards or so. First,
what string are you using? If it is
a Dacron string, change it for
something with less stretch like fast
flight. That gives more punch to the
arrow from the bow – but it is less
forgiving if you make a sloppy shot.
And check with your bowyer that
your bow’s warranty covers using fast
flight. Most do but some won’t.
Second, the higher you raise just
your bow arm, the shorter your draw
length. So despite aiming a bit higher
Top Tip
Use super foods
to enhance a
good diet
your still not reaching the target. What
you need to do is draw your bow level,
so you can see the target above your
hand at full draw.Then instead of
raising your arm, you bend from the
waist, keeping head, arms and
shoulders all in line with each other as
you hinge back.This keeps your draw
length full, your arrows in spine, and
you won’t need to aim as high as you
were above the target.
Q
A
How important is the
string picture?
It is vitally important to have a
constant string picture each
shot. So much so, that compound
bows have a peep sight on the string.
Effectively, it acts as a back sight, as
on a rifle. This then is the direction of
which your arrow will travel from the
string at anchor, to bow then to target.
If the string is always viewed at the
same place at full draw – the string
picture – then the path of the arrow
flight will be the same each time.
The position of the string in the
picture will cause the arrow to fly left or
right. Depending on where we see the
string, and adjusting its position, can
also help us to get a better aiming
point on the target. If arrows are flying
too much to the right, we move the
string over to the right a little. If they fly
left, move the string left a little. The
head position has always got to be
the constant though, so that we are
looking at the same thing each time
and the string at full draw will be to the
left, centre or right of the eye. And
when I say move the string over, I am
only talking about maybe 1-3mm. This
does take practice to perfect but is
very beneficial. ADVICE ZONE: LONGBOW

My name is Martin Mycock and I recently realised a barmy idea. I spent most
of June driving 2,600 miles around England visiting 17 different archery clubs.
I did 18 shoots in three weeks to raise money for Help for Heroes.
When I set off my target was to raise £1,000, this was very quickly raised
so I increased it to £2,500. At the time of writing the fund now stands at over
£4,200 and is still open in hope of raising more.
www.justgiving.com/ArcheryForHeroes1651276642/
Everywhere I visited I was made welcome and had a great time meeting fellow
archers. In many cases they turned out on evenings they wouldn’t normally shoot.
In some cases competitions and raffles were arranged to increase the fundraising
potential.Their hospitality and generosity were, at times, overwhelming.
It was a pleasure sharing the shooting line with you all. I have no doubt I’ll meet
many of you again. Not least Green Lane Archers as they still have my foot markers

Time for a rethink?
Can I ask a question? How many of us
older archers are there? Archery UK gives
us ample evidence that over 60s provide
a decent proportion of members.They
may make up 1,000 of the 40,000-plus
Archery GB members, or it could be
closer to 20,000. It is relevant though.
With the World Archery class of Master
being over 50, (not to be confused with
our domestic Master Bowman, which is
a classification of ability), there seems a
huge void in recognising the more
elderly in the mix of things. 50 seems so
young to me now and I wonder if 60
would be a more realistic age to be
classed as a veteran?
I cannot go so far as suggest that we
would benefit from the same sort of age
breakdown that we allow for the
young, but I would be delighted to
smile at an 80-year-old shooting on
the same target as a 12-year-old
58
because they are at equal, but opposite
demographic and strength ends, of the
same sport.There is a vast difference
between an 18-year-old just entering the
senior category and a 70-year-old who
is in that same category. Perhaps the
Bristol rounds and Metric rounds could
also have an upper age range that
would allow a competition to still be an
attraction for those of us who seem to
be left behind? I imagine, however, that
we have become so accustomed to
these being junior rounds that it may be
hard to accept that they could be
adapted for others?
Perhaps it’s worth thinking about?

I beg to differ...
As someone in his 74th year I beg to
differ with the concept that when you
get older you lose your prowess in
archery. Sorry but I think that’s rubbish.
Archery is a sport to enjoy. It keeps you
fit. It’s mind over matter – if you don’t
mind it does not matter.
Last year I won three competitions.
This year I won the Yorkshire Archery
Association indoor longbow
championships and came second at
Harrogate. Sorry, I forgot to say I shoot
a longbow. Many longbow archers, it
seems, are of a certain age with new
hips and knees (and/or diabetes and
blood pressure!)
And if you find that you cannot do
what you did in your younger days,
don’t aim so high. Just enjoy it!

Safety guidance please
I have been thinking about a couple
of recent occurrences at local
tournaments in which I was judging.
One had to be abandoned when a
boss blew over and, as the winds were
not abating, the judges declared it
unsafe to continue. At another, archers
reported being unable to hold their
bows anywhere near the line to the
target because of high winds.
I sought advice but struggled to find
guidance on abandonment of a
shoot due to bad weather. I also
checked what advice could be
offered to fellow judges and those
hard-worked and much appreciated
tournament organisers (most of whom
deserve a medal!)

Force 7. Near gale. 49.9–61.8 km/h.
Whole trees moving. Effort needed
walking against wind
Perhaps we should consider
adopting guidance along the lines
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
that when gusts get to Force 6 judges
should start monitoring conditions.
If Force 7 is reached then the
tournament should be suspended and
the conditions monitored for an hour.
If the wind abates then the shoot can
resume and, if not, the event should
be abandoned.
Judges might say it is more work
but it is their first and overriding
responsibility to ensure safety, so this
approach is merely formalising what
we should be doing already. I acknowledge that there are
practical issues as most shoots do not
include an anemometer in the range
equipment. However the Royal
Meteorological Society has provided
us with a brief description of the
observed effects of these winds in its
Beaufort Scale.
For the safety of our charges on the
shooting line and for judges to be able
to satisfactorily justify our decisions,
guidance of this nature should be
agreed and provided to both judges
and tournament organisers.
Gordon Dunk, County Judge
Chairman of Judges writes: The safety
of events is always the judges’
overriding priority. To ensure an event is
safe for all they take in to account a
number of factors, not just wind which
is one element of the assessment. Without a measuring device any
assessment of wind limit is subjective.
What to some might be a Force 6
could be a Force 5 or 7 to another,
depending on the size of the tree or the
person. A judge has to assess what
they can see on the field at the time –
no matter what a weather forecast
might say. Ultimate responsibility lies with judges,
but archers have a responsibility too. If
they cannot hold the shot on the
target, they can make the assessment
they are not safe to shoot and
withdraw. The justification of our decisions
comes from what we have in front of us
at the time. A Force 7 wind in the
direction of the targets might not be an
issue, yet a cross wind causes
problems. The same goes for thunder
and lightning, rain or snow if the
ground becomes icy and slippery or
indoors if there is a leak.The possibilities
are endless so we would have to make
rules for all weather types and that is
both impractical and unnecessary.

Could it be you?
Would you like to help shape the
future of our sport?
H
ave you ever wanted to be in
the driving seat at Archery GB?
Do you have the skills and
determination to drive our sport
forward? If the answer is yes, now is
the time to step forward!
Next year seven Elected Director
vacancies need to be filled and this is
your chance to make a difference.
Archery has always been the most
inclusive of sports and we would like
our Board to reflect this. More women,

immaterial as long as you are 18
and over and we are interested in
applications from all abilities, gender,
race and religions. All you need is
the knowledge and skills to input into
the strategic direction of Archery GB.
Our sport is experiencing
unprecedented growth and
development. It faces fresh
challenges as well as fantastic
opportunities – and if you think your

Mark named
Chairman-Elect
BOARD
W
hen Archery GB’s new articles
were approved last year, one
of the changes was the way
in which the Chairman is appointed.
Instead of serving a three-year term,
the Board now appoints the Chairman
annually – and David Harrison is to
carry on in the role until next year’s AGM.
After that Mark Davies will take over.
These are exciting times and the
idea behind the change was to ensure
that Archery GB had the flexibility to
make the most of Board members’ skills
and experience to drive its strategic
focus forward.
Dave, who was first elected in 2010,
said: “Being your Chairman has been
an absolute blast. I have met so many
members and people that a lad from
60
stronger and more successful, then it’s
time to think about standing for
election to the Board.
You will be working alongside our
Chief Executive David Sherratt and
our three Independent Directors,
Chris Mortlock, Mark Davies and
Neil Armitage. You will be helping to
complete the transition to a
skills-based Board, changing the
way Archery GB operates and,
potentially, be in at the start of a
new beginning for archery in the UK.
Directors meet four times a year
as a Board, usually at weekends.
Newcastle would not normally expect
to meet. I have visited a wide range of
countries to represent Archery GB and
it has been a real pleasure. I am
extremely proud to serve you all.
“Our sport is in a better place, with
more members, a better service to us
the members and, of course, more
medal success. But of course that is
not down to me. You the members
and volunteers, working with our
dedicated staff, have achieved that.
“Following the governance
changes Mark Davis will step into
the chair after the AGM. He comes
with a wide range of commercial
experience and will act as
Chairman-Elect. We will be working
closely together up to the AGM and I
ARCHERY UK AUTUMN 2015
The estimated time commitment is
around 20 days a year.
Interested? You can find out more
about what the role involves in the
Governance>Elected Directors
section of the website.
To apply all you have to do is
send your CV and letter of
application by email (including
your full name, membership number
and length of membership) to
[email protected]
Requests for informal/confidential
discussions can also be sent to this
email address.
Your application must be
supported by three Electors. Each of
these Electors should send an email
of support, including your name, to
[email protected]
giving their full name and
membership number and state how
they qualify as an Elector.
You are also required to complete
sections 3 and 4a of the Company
House Information Form and return
that with your application. David Harrison
know you will give Mark the same
support as you have given me.”
Mark, who is one of Archery GB’s
Independent Directors, said: “I’m very
excited to be taking over as Chairman
of Archery GB and am relishing the
challenges ahead. I’d like to pay tribute
to Dave Harrison for his years of
excellent work on behalf of everyone in
the sport, and am very pleased that he
is staying in place to help ease me into
the role in April next year. I am looking
forward to working with him and
people throughout the sport.” I
was pleased to attend the National Series Finals held in Nottingham.
It was great to see, once again, a top level event and one which
builds on our first class working relationship with Nottingham Building
Society and Nottingham City Council. We will be working in Nottingham
again next year on the World Archery Europe European Championship
2016 which will see many athletes from around Europe compete for
European titles and Olympic quota places.
The Board held its first meeting in July with a full complement of 12
directors including three Independent Directors. As part of the new
arrangements, the position of Chairman was due for review and the
Board agreed that Dave Harrison will continue as Chairman until the
2016 AGM when his current term as a Director comes to an end. The
Board voted Mark Davies as Chair-Elect and he will take over as
Chairman of the Board. The 2016 AGM will be significant with seven
elected directors up for election.
There will be three Membership Roadshows in November. This
gives us an opportunity to meet with members to provide an
update on the work of Archery GB and to ask for member’s views,
including comments around some possible changes to subscription
categories. Further details are in the magazine and I hope to see you at
one of the Roadshows.
Here at Lilleshall, the revamped Queens Bar has opened with Lilleshall
reception moving there from its long established position in the main
house. The building work has moved to commence on the new admin
block funded by Sport England at the back of Wenlock car park. I have
been advised that the building will be completed for occupancy from
May 2016. This will see the Memberships Services team, Development
and Finance teams and myself moving across into one office.
Performance will remain based at Sutherland Hall.
I hope that you have had a great summer enjoying participation in
our sport and wish you well for the indoor season.

Added spice
A
rchery proved to be one of
the main attractions as 100
people tried out different
sports at the 2015 Amputee Games
at Stoke Mandeville.
The games, organised by
LimbPower, were created to introduce
primary (new) amputees to a wide
range of sports. The aim is to help with
rehabilitation, get them interested in
sport and introduce them to other
amputees so that they can share
experiences and speak to others in
the same situation. And the hope is
that some might go on to achieve
Paralympic success.
Helen George, Fred Stevens and
Maureen Ritson were on hand to give
entrants a taste of archery and, to add
some spice, organised a competition.
It was a huge success, with more than
30 amputees taking part.
Helen said: “We were very pleased
with the standard of the competition
as most had never tried archery before.
We gave lots of them details of how to
find and contact local clubs and I
asked a couple to keep in touch with
me as they were very interested and
showed a lot of promise.
“It was very busy, but it was a
great weekend.” Build your

A
century of support was marked
in style by the Blind Veterans UK

It held its biggest shoot yet, a
centenary special, at the Sussex
Archery Ground in Crawley. It attracted
61 archers, plus friends and supporters
from archery clubs who have
competed with members over
the years.

Among the clubs shooting a short
Windsor were: Ditchling, Newhaven,
Southampton University, Hellingly,
Clickers Archery, Royal Navy, RAF and
the eventual winners, the Army.The top
four scores from each team, handicap
adjusted, were used for final scoring.

You are invited…
To have your say on new proposals
L
ast year we all worked together to
help shape the future of our sport.
Now Archery GB would like to
invite you to take part in a series of
meetings to talk about new initiatives
and proposals.
These are extremely exciting times for
archery in Great Britain – our sport is
now firmly embedded in the public
consciousness and we need to keep it
there. To do that we need more
members, more people taking part,
more archers on the shooting line
and better access to coaching and
facilities. We need to attract more
outside investment, bring home more
world-class medals and offer more
support to our volunteers.
Our success means it is more
important than ever that we plan for the
future.To do that successfully we would
like your input on a number of important
topics.Your feedback is extremely
important to us. If you want to be part of
it, please come and join us at:
2 November:
Huddersfield University
4 November: Link Hotel,
Loughborough University
9 November: Bisham Abbey
To register your interest please email
[email protected] Stay in
the habit
S
port is good for us. It has a
profound impact on our physical
and mental health. But how do
you convince people to keep it up
once they have started? It is one of the
challenges facing sports clubs and the
major triggers include:
finishing school
starting university
starting a first full time job
starting a family
For most people this drop out is not a
conscious decision. Life changes and
they just get out of the habit.
In 2012 Sport England suggested it
was the responsibility of the sport sector
to make it as easy as possible for
people to stay involved. Its strategy aims
to ensure that by 2017 sport becomes
a habit for life for more people.
Many clubs are rising to the task –
doing great work to increase sustained
participation, particularly among
school leavers, while providing
opportunities for young people to
improve their lives.
If you have any ideas to keep archers
involved following a change in life event,
we would love to hear from you. Contact

And Finally
S
o much has happened this
summer that it’s hard to know
where to begin. One thing is
certain though – it’s been fantastic,
hasn’t it? There have been so many
great tournaments and so many superb
performances on home soil and
abroad as our sport continues to flourish
Our young archers and Para squad,
in particular, have done us proud. They
are a true credit to our sport, bringing
home medals and securing precious
quota places at Rio. And let’s not
forget, that’s less than a year away
now. It seems only yesterday that we
were preparing for our home games!
Among the home-grown highlights
this summer have been the Talent
Festival and the National Series. Both
are going from strength to strength
and have demonstrated, once again,
the depth of talent among the UK’s
archers and the potential we have to
look forward to.
The atmosphere and the shooting at
the National Series Finals were fantastic.
The finals are key in providing the
athletes with experience of competing
in a high-pressured head-to-head
environment. That skill is something
that the GB athletes will be hoping to
draw on at next year’s European
Championships in Nottingham.
As some of you will have already
heard, I will be stepping down as
Chairman of Archery GB at next year’s
Dave captures the action at the Nottingham
Building Society Archery GB National Series
Grand Finals. Photo: Robin Maryon
AGM. Until then I will be working closely
with the Chairman-Elect, Mark Davies.
Being your Chairman has been an
absolute blast. I have met so many
members and people that a lad from
Newcastle would not normally expect to
meet. I have visited a wide range of
counties to represent Archery GB and it
has a real pleasure. I have been
extremely proud to serve you all.
Our sport is in a better place, with
more members, a better service to us
the members and, of course, more
medal success. But of course that is not
down to me. You the members and
volunteers, working with our dedicated
staff, have achieved that.
There is a lot happening between now
and next April, not least the Combined
National indoor Championships which,
this year, will be heading to Archery
GB’s former headquarters at Stoneleigh
Park, Warwickshire.
If I don’t see you beforehand, I hope
to see you there. Come up and have a
chat. One of the best perks of the job is
catching up with old friends – and
making new ones. Until then I wish you
good shooting.
Chairman, Archery GB
