Roses 2014 – Less than a month away! — April 3, 2014

Roses 2014 – Less than a month away!


  As you may of heard, the Roses tournament, where Lancaster and York Universities battle it out across various sports, is having it’s 50th anniversary this year, and Lancaster has the incredibly opportunity to host it on this momentous occasion. From the 2nd to the 4th of May Roses fever will envelop Lancaster Campus and athletes from both Universities will be at the top of their game including, of course, the Archers.

  This year is a very exciting year for Archery, as the competition will take place, on the Sunday (3rd of May), as a 3v3 head to head (where Novice, Senior and Alumni teams will have 4 rounds of 2 minutes to fire 2 arrows each at 50m for Novice and 70m for the Senior and Alumni archers), preceded by a 72 arrow qualifying round to determine the teams, exactly the same as you’d see in the olympics. Making the event especially exciting will be the setting. The competition will be taking place in the stadium that will be hosting the opening and closing ceremonies, with cameras pointed at the targets live streaming the competition, and live commentary to boot. All this coupled with a professional timing system will make for an extremely exciting and intense competition not a far cry from the olympics.

  Interested? The event is open to all spectators with the qualification round starting at 10:00am on the Sunday. It will be a spectacular event, so make sure you check it out!

Cumbria H2H and end of novice training — October 31, 2013

Cumbria H2H and end of novice training

Last weekend the club seniors competed in the cumbria world record status FITA 18 + head to head competition. The format of the competition involves shooting a qualifying round  (FITA 18  at  40cm 3 spot faces) in the morning. Then in the afternoon a head to head round, where each archer is paired with another, and shoot against each other to get through to the next round. Congratulations go to Lancaster’s Laura Hodgkinson for getting a 3rd place in both the FITA 18 and the head to head, also to long standing member Matt Wilkinson (shooting for bowbearers of Wrysdale) who came 2nd in the FITA 18 and 1st place in the head to head.


In further news the novice training sessions have now finished, and shooting has returned to normal. If you still wish to try archery please just send us an e-mail.
