Archery Tournament 2014

On Sunday 22nd June 2014 we put on our second It’s in the Banter Family Archery Tuition & Tournament Day for the patients & their families. The big question was would the reigning champ Mike Shields retain his trophy or would someone new walk away with the crown?

With over 30 people taking part the afternoon was a huge success thanks to the amazing Gordano Valley Archers whose coaching staff led by Paul made everyone feel at ease with their deadly weapons and ensured that we all went home with all limbs still attached!

This year we provided a BBQ for everyone which proved a roaring success in the glorious sunshine between the ranking shoot-outs and the finals. The kids had their own mini tournament in which they all did brilliantly and there were a few bruised ego’s in the adult competition! Congratulations to Mike Shields (3rd place), Michal Kotula (2nd place) and our 2014 winner Steve Dowson.

We have to say massive thanks to Paul and his team from Gordano Valley Archers who gave up their free time to make the afternoon such an amazing success and put smiles on the faces of everyone who attended (even those who lost!). We’re already looking forward to next year!
