RCA vs Blackpool Bowmen Friendly Shoot 2016
Rochdale were this year’s hosts for the annual friendly shoot against Blackpool and thankfully the weather stayed fine for another great shoot. Both clubs were well-represented with over 50 archers shooting.
The recurve trophy went to Rochdale’s team: Russell Reader, Garry Partington, Rebecca Stephenson and Alex Dixon.
The Longbow trophy was won by Ian Fleming of Rochdale.
The Compound trophy was taken home by the Blackpool team: Julie Yates, Paul Sykes, Len Kitching and Dave Sandham.
Rochdale Junior awards went to: Oliver Quigley (boy, compound), Oliver Taylor (boy, recurve), Chloe Webb (girl, recurve) and Emily Campbell (girl, barebow).
Many thanks to the field party, the volunteers and to Blackpool Bowmen for their enduring friendship.
Roll on next year when Rochdale makes the trip across the county to the coast and we can do it all again!
