A Pilgrim's progress up the frosty league

Dear all,

Another Frostbite goes by I would like to thank all those that took part this year for such a good cause and one close to our hearts, you raised £270 which was topped up to £300 a pound for every point a maximum score would bring.

42 archers entered the fray and we even got some non-longbow archers to give it a go with surprising results! Let’s hope we see them with a longbow in their hands again.

You can find the full results list on CMFB's website.

Indivdual longbow results:
  1. Grahame Andrews  (Canterbury)
  2. Chris Clarke (Canterbury)
  3. Bob Gawler (Thanet)
Longbow team results:
  1. Canterbury
  2. Thanet
  3. CMFB
The best individual score was Chris Clarke with 36 hits, 6 golds and a superb score of 282 not bad for a stick with some string on it!

The presentation took place on a sunny Sunday, 7 April 2013 and it was excellent to see a good turn out, Deidre Mewse from Pilgrims Hospice and wife of one of our ex Longbow club members Bryan Mewse,  presented the prizes. Elsa and Eva were in attendance though Sarah didn’t let them shoot.

CMFB archers shot the best frosbites they’ve shot all year with Dave Ash taking the best score for the presentation shoot; it must have been the weather! 

A big thank you to Malcolm Keene for superb arrow making (it has been suggested that Grahame is hoping to get a complete set he can shoot).  

If the CMFB committee approve we could do the competition for Pilgrims Hospice again next year.

Once again thank you for taking part, shooting a frostbite can be annoying and fun at the same time as we all know.

Many thanks for all your efforts.
