Racketts Archery Club opened their doors for their annual Christmas Worcester shoot this weekend. As always this is by far the most relaxed and friendly shoot on the archery calendar with Christmas carols playing the background and many archers taking advantage of the invitation to dress up in Christmas outfits.
Braintree Bowmen were very well represented throughout the day with club archers competing in all 3 of the sessions. With 8 BB archers present at different times the club flag was flown high and proud.
Not only did the club take part but we also had a very successful day with 17 medals handed out to our dedicated bunch:
Amelia Chumber – Session Gold and Overall Gold in the Junior Barebow division
Sam Moir – Session Gold, Overall Gold in Junior Boys Recurve division and Silver in the Team Competition
Ben Moir – Session Silver and Overall Bronze in the Junior Boys Recurve division
James Moir – Session Gold in the Gent Recurve division, Overall Silver in the Married Couples event and Silver in the Team Competition
Jo Moir – Session Silver, Overall Bronze in the Ladies Recurve and Overall Silver in the Married Couples event
Richard Burgess – Session Gold, Overall Gold in the Gents Barebow division and Silver in the Team Competition
Ian Bugbee – Overall Silver in the Team Competition
Peter Scofield – Session Gold and Overall Bronze in the Gents Barebow division
Many congratulations to all our club archers who took part!
