|Cleve archers spring shoot report|
|Danny and Ryan lead the way at the Cleve shoot last Sunday .....|
Powys archers Roger Davies and Paul ,Danny and Ryan Pinder all competed at the Cleve archers spring shoot on a very windy day . The wind was strong and gusty blowing mainly from right to left but also swirling around the trees giving very changeable conditions . Everybody found the conditions tough to deal with but it was our Junior archers that showed Roger and myself how it is done . The situation was made worse for the Juniors in that they were at the least sheltered end of the field but despite this both of our Junior boys did a great job .
Ryan was hoping for his third Junior bowman score in a row but due to the wind , his light arrows and poundage , it was not to be .He did shoot a good 1st class score which was good enough for second place in the U12 gents section .
Danny did even better , he was looking for his third Junior Master Bowman score but again just fell short . Despite the weather he was only 37 points short of his PB and good enough to comfortably take the gold medal position .
We also had a bonus in that the Pinder clan also won the Recurve Team trophy being the highest scoring 3 archers from the same club .
Well done to our junior boys for a great performance but lets hope for calmer weather next weekend at Bromyard so that us old folk can have a chance!!
