GWAS Junior Intercounties - 10th September 2022

Are you or do you know a junior Somerset archer?  I am putting together the Junior County Team for the GWAS Junior Intercounties on 10th Sept which is being held at Burnham.

If you are interested in being part of the Somerset Junior County team please contact me with any scores you have for this season.  Preferably 12 dozen rounds shot in competition but if you do not have this then please submit any scores you have shot either in competition or at your club.  Barebow, Compound, Longbow and Recurve bowstyles up to U18 years old. Round to be shot is Metric 1-5.

Your entry fee will be paid by the county if you are selected for the team.  As this competition is also the GWAS Junior Champs you can still enter if not selected for the team.

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.
