50 junior archers from across the East Midlands area met at Sherwood Archers field in Southwell Nottinghamshire on 24th July to compete for team honours at the EMAS Junior Inter-counties Tournament. A great day of shooting was had in lovely weather and this culminated in Hollie Smith, competing for Derbyshire, in breaking the UK record for the compound bow shooting the Bristol 3 round. Hollie scored a magnificent 1294 and only dropped one shot outside the gold zone. Well done Hollie. There were also lots of claims for Rose awards and six gold ends so a fantastic performance by all archers.
Many thanks to the organisers, the field party and all the helpers from Sherwood Archers for hosting this year’s tournament.
