November Soup Shoot

It was a good turnout for the Soup Shoot despite the weather forecast. The weather was actually kind to us, as it started to rain just as we were breaking for our soup. The soup was delicious as usual thanks to the efforts of Derek and Sean. There was a slight hiccup when Derek couldn’t find a tin opener, but Peter saved the day with “ I just happen to have one”. Why would Derek want a tin opener for ‘home made soup’?? Sean’s spicey noodle soup was definitely home made and wonderfully warming.
And so to the archery, our excellent recurve archers were shooting at 40cm targets, archers using wooden arrows at 80cm targets and juniors and novices at 120cm faces. With only the white ring scoring 10 points and the Blue ring scoring 5 points it wasn’t easy. However, 1st place had to be decided by a shoot off between partners Steve Carr and Debbie Simms against Neil Simms and John Ireland (both pairs scoring 270 points). The eventual winners were Steve and Debbie. Other prize winners were Derek and Emma, and George and Neil Mc.
