Annual Outdoor Championship 25th August 2013

Annual Outdoor Championship 25th August 2013

The Crieff Archery Club held its 21st championships at the Ardvreck playing fields on Sunday 25th August. The weather turned out to be ideal and resulted in a number of the archers recording their best ever scores.We had a number of different bow styles shooting on the day in the contest. Alan Walker – an experienced “long bow” archer recently joined the club and shot his bow to good effect during the day. This was a first for the club and added to the day. We also now have recurve and compound bows competing and all recording very good scores.

The tournament was an “American Round” which consists of 90 arrows shot over 60,50 and 40 yards. The maximum possible is 810 points. The club would like to thank Richard Harvey (Headmaster Ardvreck) and Chloe Walker for their support.

We had a good turnout of archers shooting with an age range of over 60 to Jamie Cargill who is only 7 years of age! All archers agreed at the start that in the event of a draw there would be a shoot-off with one arrow deciding the winner. As it happened David Cargill and his father Alex tied in the compound division with 790 points. This added some “spice” to the end of the shoot with Alex’s arrow winning by a narrow margin.
Allan McDougall the clubs vice president donated classification badges to members who had qualified during the year—Alex Cargill 1st class, Allan McDougall 2nd class, Marcin Haisz 2nd class, Emma Borrie, 2nd class, Roisin Butcher 2nd class and Ron Clark 2nd class.

Alex Cargill Quaich Tournament

The Crieff Archery Club had it’s second Alex Cargill Quaich Tournament on Sunday 16th June 2013, at the Ardvreck playing fields.

The weather was great no wind and nice and warm. There were competitors shooting recurve and compound bows on the day with some very high scores recorded!

This year there were 2 under 12 archers competing David Calder and Jamie Cargill. We also had 2 junior Girls competing Emma Borrie and Cleodie Schneider who is a pupil of Ardvreck and a club member.

The more experienced archers shot a Western Round which consists of 48 arrows shot over 60yards and 48 arrows at 50yards. The maximum possible score is 864 points. The Alex Cargill Quaich can only be won by a recurve archer. This trophy was given to the club by Alex to be shot for annually to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the club.

A new trophy was awarded to the compound overall champion for the first time this year. Libby Borrie was Lady Paramount for the day and awarded the prizes at the end of the tournament. 

The club members wore their new colours for the tournament with red tops and black bottoms. Derek Cargill  who is a club member  and who owns Cargill’s Auto’s (Bridge of Earn) sponsored the embroidering of the club logo’s for which all members were very grateful. This will be our “uniform” for all future club events.
