Members of Banbury Cross Archers battled through difficult weather conditions today (12/07/2015) at Target Craft Archers, who are based at Kettering, Northamptonshire. During the competition, there was talk at one point, amongst the Judges, of abandoning the competition but the competition resumed and members fought on through the wind and rain. Eventually their persistence paid off and they came home with some winning medals.

The results were as follows:-

Jennifer Beesley bronze in the Ladies Recurve
Jeremy Beesley silver in the Mens Recurve
Simon Stubbs bronze in Mens Recurve
Michael Carty silver in Mens Barebow
Brian Perry got bronze in Mens Compound
Emily-Rose Stubbs silver in Junior (f) Recurve
