ARCHERY: Four-club attack hits target.
The somewhat unusual format of the competition involves 60 arrows shot in 12 ends of five over 20 yards at a 16-inch diameter black face with a white centre.
In the double competition, for those shooting at both morning and afternoon sessions, Philippa Lowe (Meriden) won the ladies' recurve event on 573, well ahead of Lisa Illingworth (Evesham), 554.
Fourteen-year-old Karl Lowe was second in the junior boys compound event with an excellent 573, behind on-form Rob Brewer from Deer Park who equalled his own national record of 595.
Adrian Kinzett (Meriden), 562, took the men's recurve C class medal, and the Meriden recurve team of Philippa Lowe, Pete Lowe, Adrian Kinzett and John Weaver finished in second place with 2212 points behind Evesham's 2252.
Kathy Folkard (Leamington) won gold with 269 in the single Worcetser competition, shooting recurve, 11 ahead of silver medallist Carol Holt (Redditch).
James Folkard (Dunlop, Coventry), a former member of the national junior squad, won the men's recurve competition with 274.
The Leamington Club is now taking bookings for its popular archery beginners' courses which start in April.
Suitable for all aged 8 years and above, a course of five lessons with all necessary equipment provided costs pounds 30, and makes an unusual Christmas gift. Anyone interested can contact Kathy Folkard on 01926 741838.
