The IoM Archery Club was in action both at home and abroad at the weekend. A small numbers of archers turned up at Onchan, while a larger group braved the storms to take part in the NCAS Championships at Preston. Both groups shot a Portsmouth round.
At Onchan Matt Elliott posted a pb to take the win in the Gent’s Recurve. Simon Jennings added 16 points to his pb but have to settle for third place behind Alex Parkes.
Barbara Harris shot her default score in the Ladies Recurve.
Colin Moore abandoned his Compound bow to shoot a Recurve Barebow round and managed to score with all his arrows and get some good groups into the bargain.
James Hill was the only Junior to shoot at Onchan and he put in some fine ends although the intense cold was energy sapping.
