Report on The All British Senior and Junior Field Archery Championships 2019

 

This year the ABO was held in Northern Ireland and hosted by Lough Cuan Bowmen.

The course was held on a new ground on the beautiful premises of Mount Stewart, a National Trust property and gardens in the area of County Down.  The shoot was very well organised and smooth running.  

Dame Mary Peters was the Lady Paramount. 

The English team were chosen from those that had booked in to the championship (with the exception of Robert Twigg who was asked to attend and booked in last minute).  Where there were more than one person within the category attending, the scores from the previous two field shoots were checked for the highest scoring archer in that category.

Two English archers who were high scoring and booked in opted not to be in the England team due to injury.

Despite our team shooting well, we did not achieve the scores of the Welsh team who had a particularly strong team.

Notable performances from our team were Jamie Adams who won silver in hotly contested recurve division, Joe Fairburn winning gold in the Junior Recurve and Robert Twigg winning gold in the American flatbow division.

My first experience of archery was taking my son and daughter for 4 years.  I became Records officer to Sussex County AA during this time   Once they started field archery, I decided to take the beginners course at the beginning of 2013.  As soon as I picked up the bow, I absolutely loved it!  My enthusiasm grew and I practiced often.  I gained my first qualifying score for the GB 3d field team during my first year shooting Traditional and Master Bowmen in Barebow target.  Since then, my achievements in archery include 5 years shooting internationally for the GB 3D team, a silver medallist in 2016 at the European 3D championship shooting instinctive bow style, winning 4 gold medals at the World Masters Games shooting barebow in  IFAA field, WA field, Indoor combined and WA720/H2H.  I achieved 7 British records in Barebow target and Traditional Field.   I started the Brighton Bowmen Tournament diary with Chris Tucknott which I still update. I initiated and maintain the Sussex Field Achievement award scheme.  I remain on the Sussex County committee as field records officer. I was a committee member of the GB Field Committee in 2018.   I have been selected for the England field team for the last two years, this year being my first time as England Manager.   My achievements show my enthusiasm for archery, particularly field/3D.  I hope I can bring some of my enthusiasm to the EAF and make some positive changes.
