Falklands : Falklands: IJS & Camp Archery Steps Up a Gear
Submitted by Falkland Islands News Network (Juanita Brock) 28.09.2013 (Article Archived on 26.10.2013)

IJS & Camp Archery Steps Up a Gear





IJS &
Camp Archery Steps Up a Gear



 



 



July
and August saw 14 pupils take part in the IJS & Camp Education Archery Club
with a lot of first timers and a solid core from Years 5 & 6. For many in
Year 6 it was their last chance to shoot at the club as they are now year 7 and
have moved on to FICS, we wish them well in their endeavours.



 



The
increase in numbers required a rethink of how the sessions were run, but by
splitting it into two groups of 7 of an hours’ time each, we were able devote
coaching to each archer as required. The club ran right through in to the very
last week of the school holiday with hardly anyone missing out on the chance to
take part; their dedication to the sport is impressive.



 



Top
archer on the day was Connor McLeod who was only 15 points off a Gold
Certificate. He was pushed all the way by Caitlin Fowler who managed to get all
six arrows in the gold in a single end of the 30 arrow shoot.



 



Certificates
and the target faces shot on by each archer were presented at FICS by Jo Lazo,
Secretary of the FAA and Mr Winward the Head Teacher. Steve Gill committee
Member of the FAA presented the certificates and targets to the new Year 6
students of IJS & CE, a big thank you to you all.



 



Score
and Certificates awarded.  Scores out of
maximum of 300.

First time archers



 



All
the first time archers did very well indeed and show much promise, Tiphanie
Reid put in a very strong showing having not shot for nearly a year. Lachlan
and Molly showed natural talent with Shaleena, Skya, Demi-Lou and Jordan
putting in very strong scores for their first competition and a credit to them
for their efforts.



 



Five
of the above young archers have joined the Falklands Archery Association and
are a most welcome addition to the club. They make the club shoots quite a buzz
and have moved up the distances to almost full indoor ranges at alarming speed
building on their experience gained in the IJS&CE hall.



 



Thank
you to all that helped run the club, Jason Lewis, Mark Lewis, Kathryn McGeachie
and  Len McGill  of the FAA, Steve Dent, Alan Fowler and Steve
Cartwright parents of the young archers that came in and help setup and pack
up. Tamsin McLeod, the official scorer. Without your help it would not be
possible.
