2017 Selby Summer League – Final Result

The Longbow Team completed the five matches and ended up with 13 League Points, we won four and lost one, same as the Division winners ABBA who had a higher score (so it was a case of Waterloo for us). ABBA had a gross score of 2043 to Arundown’s 1982, but we were well ahead of 3rd place team Mole Valley on 1574. We were also ahead of Cheltenham, Bromley and Guildford.

The Recurve Team outcome was a bit different, the Team shot three matches, winning two and losing the third by just two points, and then we were unable to raise teams for the last two matches. All the same we ended up in fourth place out of six on points.

Sept 30th Portsmouth Shoot – almost done & dusted

Congratulations to Serena on another successful shoot, all kept splendidly on schedule by Tony Harris and Julie Coates, with the Range and Targets kept in very good order by Robert Keeling.
The Scores as written on the score sheets are on the Tournaments Page, and some photos of the day are on the Arundown Gallery (at the bottom of the page). It looks like everyone in the shoot is pictured on the shooting line.
Serena is checking the scores and will be sending out the Final Results Sheets any day now.
FINAL RESULTS – as sent out
Thanks to everyone who came, participants and supporters. And apologies for having to trek around around the playground rather than being able walk through the Performance Rooms.

Another Record Status Portsmouth this September

We’ll be hosting another UK-Record-Status Portsmouth Tournament in the Angmering School sports Hall on Saturday 30th September. Details are on the Tournament Page

CURRENT STATUS 26th September:
Two double cancellations today, so now

First Session : 3 spaces available for archers shooting on a Single Target Face (normally Recurve / Barebow / Longbow)

Second Session : 2 spaces available for archers shooting on a Single Target Face

This event is being run to provide an opportunity for junior archers within the SCAS region to obtain a Portsmouth score to make them eligible to represent England at the Junior Indoor Nationals in December 2017; but it is also open to other archers including adults. Priority will be given to single rounds first, to allow as many archers as possible to attend.

The Final Reckoning – October 2016

The Selby Summer Postal League runs for five months, and after four months all six teams in our Recurve Divison had the same number of points – four matches played, two wins and two losses each, 8 points scored. So the League Division was bound to end with three teams with 10 points and three teams with 8 points if all the teams put in scores. The Division Winner would be the team with 10 points and the highest score. At that point we were in Second Place, 12 points behind the Division Leader. We would have been clear out in front if our May result hadn’t been way below our average. We were up against Bowmen of Rutland (the Clout shooters among us know ’em well, we’ve been there five or six times) and they were right down at the bottom score-wise, all we had to do was put in an average score…
UNFORTUNATELY we didn’t, and Rutland produced one really good archer to top their score up.
So our Recurve Team ended up in fourth place in Divison 9, and so did our Longbow Team (which was Robert Keeling and Rod Brown every month) in Division 8. Recurve Team members were David Phillips, Martin Turner, Iain Charlesworth, Craig Marsden, Marc Charlesworth, Richard Smallbone, and Ross Moseley.
