Sunday 2nd August 2015, Archers of East Riding hit the road again to take part in the Annual East Riding Invitation Competition hosted by Burton Constable Company of Bowmen. With a good turn out from both juniors and seniors and quite favourable weather, hopes of a good trophy haul were high.
Shooting an American round comprising of 2.5 dozen arrows each at 60, 50 and 40 yards the seniors certainly performed well, especially David Reaney with quadruple success. Not to be out done the juniors performed equally as well shooting Western rounds according to age, with Niamh Titchener achieving a County Record score.
