Crieff Archery Club Annual Outdoor Championships 2016.


The Crieff Archery Club held its 24th Annual Outdoor Archery Championships on Sunday 28th August at Braidhaugh playing fields.

The event commenced at 1.30pm. and was well attended with archers shooting both Recurve and Compound bows. The club would

Like to thank the Crieff Rugby Club and Duncan Murchie for their support in allowing us the use of the grounds!

There was an air of excitement as the archers prepared to compete, with plenty medals to be won and

the honour of  winning the  major prize of club champion. The weather was very kind to us and allowed the club members to shoot

some very high scores.

The “round” being shot was an “American” which comprises of 30 arrows at each distance of 60 yards,50 yards and 40 yards. There was also a junior “round” at

40 yards,30 yards and 20 yards.

The maximum score that could be achieved is 810 points!

Recurve archers and Compound archers compete for a different trophy.


At the conclusion of shooting the overall  Recurve  Champion was Emma Borrie with a score of 674 points.


The overall Compound  Champion was Alex Cargill with a score of 796. ( Whilst this was not a record status event, Alex’s score was 4 points ahead of the current Scottish record for Compound archers for that “round”).


The club always compete for a handicap award at this event. This cup has been shot for in memory of Nick Butcher who was our Vice President and was donated by his wife Rose and daughter Roisin. It has been our custom to ask Roisin to present this special cup. This year it was won by Stuart O’Donnell who shot very well.
