We were lucky enough to have John Cunningham and Denise Burgess judging the event. Denise is a long-term member of GVA who was being assessed on the day as part of her judges’ qualification.
With a field of nearly 30 archers, most bow types were represented with competition being particularly keen amongst the bare bow and longbow archers. The full results are also available in the members’ area of the website. At least six new Regional records were set, subject to approval, all by Gordano archers.
This was also the first time we had presented our newly- commissioned GVA badges. Available in gold, silver, and bronze they were well-received all round.
Having had some very positive feedback about the event we have decided to organise further open clouts, the next being held on the 10 November, Remembrance Sunday and hopefully more members will join us.
Thank you again, to our judges and Lord Patron and all the volunteers who helped make the day such a success, a special thanks go to Ann Davey, for providing drinks and home-made cakes throughout the day.
