LUAC tryouts — September 24, 2013

LUAC tryouts

LUAC will be holding team try-outs on Friday 4th October 4-6pm, in Lancaster sports centre’s main sports hall. The try-outs will consist of a full Portsmouth round, and is open to any student who has previous shooting experience and has a GNAS card (or a previous member of the club). The purpose of the try-outs is just to get an idea of the level people are currently shooting at, this gives us an idea of how strong a senior team we can field and how much senior development we need to invest in; it will not effect your chances of being selected to be part of the team.

we look forward to seeing you all there 🙂

NEUAL Outdoors Match Report — May 30, 2013

NEUAL Outdoors Match Report

This year the NEUAL outdoor competition was held by York and so we left Lancaster fairly early on the Saturday morning. The weather was okay when we got there, however as we set up our bows it took a turn for the worst and started raining, conditions getting poorer as we continued shooting the first distance! Many teams began retreating to their tents and it only began to ease off towards the final ends of the first distance. At this point everyone began enjoying the day much more as the sun began to emerge! Everyone’s shooting improved, and by this point Kim Andrews and Kate Wilhelm were already leading in their respective novice recurve categories, with Tom Wilson doing well in the compound bracket. From here on in the weather brightened up, and the day was very pleasant; shooting 6 arrow ends right up until the last distance of 30m where it was swapped to 3 arrow ends. By this time in the late afternoon the sun was shining brightly and everyone was excited to hear the final results! At the end of the day after final scoring it was discovered that Lancaster had won 1st Novice Team, 1st Novice Female, 1st Compound, 3rd Novice Male, 3rd Senior Team and 3rd Novice Female, giving us a healthy collection of medals to add to our awards. We finally left in the evening happy with our success for the 2013 year!
