A very special mention to Rory Blake who at 16 years old, shooting in the Open Male Compound class, won the Short Distance event.

Congratulations also to Greg Opie who was  Best All Round Master Male Recurve archer and Ian Dall was Best All Round Veteran Male Recurve archer.

A full team consists of 4 Male and 4 Femaie archers in each discipline (compound and recurve). We only had one female archer so we had a serious handicap in the inter RGB team competition and were only able to place 3rd in both competitions. Next year ...
