Competitions Need Judges - how about becoming a judge?

Without judges, no competition can take place and, in Somerset, judges are few and far between. Why not join this select band? Whether you are a competition archer or only shoot for fun, judging is a way to put something back into the sport you love. AGB has put an introduction to judging on their website,  if you are interested, please click on this link.
If you would prefer to see what is involved without commitment, please email me and I will try to arrange for you to ‘shadow’ me at one of the forthcoming competitions.

Awards for Somerset Archers

Dear Archers of Somerset,
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the three Somerset archers who were given awards at the recent ArcheryGB AGM.  
Firstly,  The Gussy Trophy for wheelchair archer of the year was awarded to Jo Frith. At the Rio Paralympic Games she won W1 mixed team gold and individual silver medals.  
Secondly, Andrew Rees was awarded a bronze plaquette in recognition of his dedication as a member of the Archery GB field team since 2005 and his contribution to running the sport at club, county, regional and national levels.
Finally, Tim Jackson was awarded an Honorary Life Membership – in recognition of and thanks for his outstanding contribution to major archery events over the past 15 years.  
I am sure that you will join me in congratulating all our prize winners – it’s great to see Somerset archers recognized at national level.  
Vikki Gallop
