CSAA Field Championships

Quite a few of Nonsuch archers took part in the event – organiser John Pettet was helped in the planning by our field specialist Dave Morris, and the Lord Paramount was our very own Secretary (and Surrey President) Les Bashford.  This must have spurred on a few of our archers, with some great results (full results on the CSAA website):

Paul Brewer: 1st place County Archer and 3rd overall, Gents Traditional

Linda Skeet: 3rd in County, Ladies Recurve (Linda would have been 1st in county Ladies Barebow if her bow had gone through the 10cm hoop!)

Jane Hodgson: 4th in County, Ladies Recurve

Sam Hodgson: 1st place, Gents U18 Compound UL

John Croft also shot in the Gents Longbow

Well done everyone, maybe this experience will get a few more of our archers having a try at Field next year.
