Scout National Archery Competition 2018

Whilst most of you were basking in the sun at Stonor (?!) for the last ever 'P&S' camp - 9 Scouts and 3 Leaders attended the National Archery competition at Phasels Wood Campsite (home to Loddon's 2007 also rather wet centenary camp!)

And whilst the weather was similar to what the rest of the group enjoyed, I can say (somewhat modestly) we did rather well!

There are 4 different events organised (but with different ages and equipment) 20 yard target archery, 40 yard target archery, a field archery event and a clout event.  Twyford managed to have winners in 3 of them and a silver in the 4th!

Twyford Scout Troop can now claim fame to having the National Scout U14 Field Archery Champion (Josh), the National Scout U14 Clout Archery Champion (Arthur) and the National Scout U18 40yard Barebow Archery Champion (Maia) , with only the U14 20 yard eluding us (Josh came second!) from a potential clean sweep in all 4 events!

All in all, a very successful weekend, and I am looking forward to going next year to take you all back to defend your trophies, and hopefully pick up some more medals and trophies.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank ALL my fellow coaches (past, on hold and current) and also the 9 scouts (you know who you are) for a very enjoyable weekend

Finally, I would like to thank my fellow Leaders Dug and Comet as well as the nine Brussels for their contribution to another excellent archery event for Twyford!

Right then, bragging over - Night All!!

A rather proud Zed!
