Liz Bowyer added the County Outdoor Championship Title to the Indoor Title she won in March, scoring a Grand-Master-level 475 points, ahead of the 2012 champion Marilyn Dewar.
Liz Bowyer became Lady Longbow Champion at the 2013 Southern Counties and Sussex Indoor Meeting at the K2 Centre in Crawley. Her score of 403 for the Portmuth Round was only 10 points behind the best ever by a Sussex Lady at this shoot.
Five months after beginning, Max Ramsey scored 519 and raised the County ‘Club’ Junior Gents Barebow Portsmouth Round record by 68 points.
Jon Stafford was the Silver Medallist in the Gents Recurve division, and Liz Bowyer, Jon Stafford and Rod Brown brought the Team Salver home to Arundown for the second time – (see 2008 below).
Three levels of Success…
Firstly, Liz Bowyer was Lady Recurve Champion for the FOURTH year in a row.
Secondly, Jon Stafford and Liz were both Recurve Champions
and Thirdly Sussex won the Team Championship, with three Arundown members being Liz, Jon and Rod Brown, and with Richard Britton from Plumpton shooting Barebow.
Liz, Jon and Rod hung on in the 2010 Top Ten, though there was some slippage. Liz ended at number three in the Ladies Recurve, Jon was seventh in the Gents Recurve and Rod on first attempt at Barebow was also at seven but slipped to sixteen in the Recurve. Graham was thirteen in the Gents Longbow.
Will Martin, a Worthing archer who’s also been an associate of Arundown for several years, came 3rd in the Metric Rounds and First in his age-group in the Championship Rounds, and to cap it all, together with Bryony Pitman (also of Worthing) formed half of the Southern Counties team that won the National Regional Championship.
and More… the following weekend, at the Sussex FITA & Metric Tournament, Will broke the National Record for the Metric 2 Round.
Liz achieved a hat-trick when she won the Southen Counties Clout at Dunstable in June.
Liz, Jon, Graham and Rod appear in the 2009 Top Ten.
Jon and Rod improved by two positions and Liz by one on the previous year, Graham slipped two and Russ three. Liz won’t be able to improve any more this year, because she ended 2009 on the very top of the pile at No. 1.
Liz (recurve) 1, John (recurve) 5, Graham (longbow) 8, Rod (recurve) 10, Russ (recurve) 12.
Liz Bowyer fought her way up from sixth place at the half-way mark to win the Ladies Recurve National Clout Trophy at Bradford by a nine point margin.
