Grays Archers vs CTRA

Following our first match defeat to West Essex (no match report I’m afraid). Our second match would be at Grays Archers.

Fortunately, the rain forecast in the morning did not show, however the gusting conditions would make for a challenging shoot for most of the day.

Shooting commenced at the agreed time of 11am with one end of sighters at 80 yards. Due to the challenging conditions, some arrows did not find their intended target, and ended up in the grass.

After 30 minutes for lunch and some greatly welcomed almond cake from our hosts, 60 yards commenced. Fortunately, due to the slight improvement in conditions, and the targets being nearer, archers did not suffer so much with stray arrows.

Another short break and the final distance at 50 got underway. At this point, the temperature drop forced some to add an extra layer.

Shooting finished and it was time to refuel and total the scores.

On the 29th April 2018, CTRA archers visited Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) after being invited to compete in a 'Town vs Gown' friendly match. This was part of their 25th anniversary celebrations and consisted of experienced and novice teams shooting a Portsmouth round.

As you'll see below we did quite well and also achieved a number of personal best scores.

Thanks to Peter Oxford and James Cudmore of ARU for arranging the day (including a very nice lunch), and Mary Watson of Peacock Archery for being our Judge.
