English and Open Longbow Championships 2016 held at Sherwood Archers.
A short report
The EAF English & Open Senior Longbow Championships 2016 took place on Saturday 16th July. This year's championship was hosted by Sherwood Archers at Southwell in Nottinghamshire. The Judge on the day was Mario Stankovic who assured all during the briefing that he had booked the weather to be fine, calm and quite humid all day which it turned out to be. With benign conditions the day promised some good scores. 27 gentlemen were entered for the York Round and 12 ladies entered the Hereford Round. Sheila Hudson from White Rose Archers won the ladies event to become the new all England Ladies Champion setting a new National Record and Cliff Gadd from Raven Archers became the new Gents Champion. Catriona Charters and Roger Spellane also shot well to become the Master Champions. Along with Sheila's National Record Claim there were four EAF Rose award claims. Marc Grady, EAF Chairman, said, " This has once again been a tremendous Championship, with all English regions solidly represented. The numbers of those wishing to compete in this National Longbow Championship are increasing each year and we are continuing to draw the best archers in the country. I am very much indebted to Richard Coats and his team at Sherwood Archers for all of their hard work in hosting this year's tournament and for agreeing to host again in 2017"
