Crieff Archery Club 22nd Annual Archery Championships - Sunday 24th August 2014
The club had a good turnout for the Championships at the Ardvreck Playing fields with the weather being very kind.
We had Recurve and Compound archers competing giving a good variety to the day. Our competitors ages ranged from 75 years to two archers aged 8.
The round we shot is called an “American” which consists of 90 arrows shot over 60yards,50yards and 40 yards. The maximum possible score is 810 points.

The club would like to thank Richard Harvey (Headmaster )Ardvreck for allowing us to use the facilities. Libby Borrie was “Lady Paramount” for the day and presented prizes at the conclusion of the shoot.
