Shropshire County Archery Team
My name is Ray Fisher I am the Shropshire County Archery Team Manager
The team represents Shropshire against other counties twice a year.
The first competition in the spring is against Lancashire and North Wales although the last few years North Wales have failed to produce a team and the shoot has been suspended. Hopefully this will be resurrected in 2016.
The second shoot is a five county shoot held at the end of the outdoor season in September/ October. The counties involved are Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.
These five counties are all West Midland Archery Society members and WMAS
competes against East Midlands each year with the top archers representing WMAS.
Several Shropshire archers make that team.
All these shoots are FITA`s with Gents shooting 90, 70, 50, 30mtrs and the Ladies shooting 70, 60, 50, 30mtrs. The team consists of Recurve, Compound and Longbow sorry no Barebow or other.
The teams will be selected from a squad. The squad and team changes all the time with some of the stalwart archers being out performed by up and coming archers so squad members must keep practicing the longer distances, nothing is taken for granted.
All Heritage shoots include long distance rounds so archers can prove their ability to shoot the required FITA distance without travelling to otherwise expensive shoots. I do my best to monitor scores throughout the year so as to pick the strongest team but I also appreciate archers contacting me with their scores.
If you are not on the current squad contact list but feel you have the potential let me know, my details are below.
