Sunday August 4th saw the East Riding Championship hosted by the Burton Constable Company of Bowmen, held on the lawns of the stunning Burton Constable Hall.
12 Scarborough Archers club members competed for an array of trophies and medals and managed to win both the recurve (Steve, Paul, Neil and Tasha) and longbow (Sean, Baz and Alison) team trophies. Steve was just pipped by 1 point in the men’s recurve and won ‘best gold’ at 50 yards. Wayne won the silver salver in ‘other wooden bows’, with John and Phil second and third. Sean was second in men’s longbow, Alison was third in ladies longbow and also won the ‘couples trophy’ with Paul. Tasha finished second in ladies recurve with a fine PB breaking our club record. Baz won the fine Constable Arrow for the most golds at 60 yards. Many thanks for the organisational skills and the kind refreshments provided by the BCCB. A superb tournament, not to be missed next year.
