CAA Indoor Championships/Jolly Archers Open Indoor Tournament

It was a dark and stormy day when five intrepid Bowmen set out from Cambridge to St Ives.  Storm Ciara was in full swing and the elements were raging.  Nonetheless four Cambridge University Bowmen and one University and City Bowman (that we regularly see) made their way to the St Ives recreation centre to shoot the CAA Indoor Championships/Jolly Archers Open Indoor Tournament.

In all, three sessions of Portsmouths were shot.  Kimberley Callaghan and Jack Atkinson shot the latter two, while Liam Pattinson, Sam Kitson-Platt and Robert Spencer shot the first one.  With the roof rattling above, our barebows (Liam and Kimberley) outdid themselves winning the barebow team by a convincing 52 points over Fenland.  Liam won his category in the CAA champs and placed second in the Jolly rankings.  Kimberley won women's barebow for both, and also topped the double Portsmouth charts.

A shout out is also due to Jack Atkinson, who shot for the City Bowmen and helped their compound team to the top of the CAA rankings. Unfortunately our recurve team of Robert and Sam was unranked due to lack of a third member.

In all it was a good day indoors, away from the wind and the rain.  We brought home some shiny medals in the barebow category and all had a great time.  We are looking forward to next year.
