Lilleshall National Sports and Conferencing Centre hosted BUCS Outdoors 2018 on 16th and 17th June. A huge number of Warwick archers qualified to go to BUCS Outdoors this year and we ended up taking a team of 24. The team consisted of: Sarah Allaway, Sam Armstrong, Hannah Burnage, Heather Clark, Emma Davis, Craig Devonport, James Edmondson, Carys Evans, James Gardner, Tom Hall, Sherman Ip, Tim Jackson, James Jeffs, Melissa Knapton, Aaron Lee, Alex Logan, Enrik Nako, William Pike, Megan Purchase, David Richardson, Charlotte Rossetti, Emma Simpson, Jess Watts and Kate Willett.
On the Saturday, a WA1440 round was shot- a total of (unsurprisingly) 144 arrows- and despite the wind and rain, Team Warwick still managed to put in a strong performance. Individually, Tom Hall took Gold for the Gents Recurve and Emma Davis took Bronze for the Ladies Recurve. Other notable performances were Sherman Ip-5th in Gents Recurve-and Hannah Burnage- 4th in Ladies Recurve.
The Gents Compound Team (James Edmondson & Tim Jackson) took Bronze overall.
The Warwick Gents Non-Compound Team (Tom Hall, Sherman Ip & William Pike) earned a Gold medal overall and the Warwick Ladies Non-Compound Team (Emma Davis, Hannah Burnage & Charlotte Rossetti) earned a Silver medal overall.
The Warwick novices also performed well, with Novice Lady Compound, Heather Clark, gaining a Silver medal. The Novice non-compound Team (Melissa Knapton, Aaron Lee & Emma Simpson) came 4th overall.
After a night of camping for most Warwick archers, the shooting recommenced on the Sunday with a WA720 qualifying round and Head to head matches. A WA720 round involves shooting 72 arrows at a distance of 70m, regardless of category. Thankfully, the weather was marginally warmer but the rain returned towards the end of the day.
After the WA720 round, many Warwick Archers had qualified in the top 10s of their respective categories, including Tom Hall, Sherman Ip, William Pike, Emma Davis, Hannah Burnage, Sarah Allaway, James Edmondson, Tim Jackson, Heather Clark & Megan Purchase.
After a very overcast set of Head to head matches (including several Warwick v Warwick matches), Tom Hall took Gold and Sherman Ip took Bronze in the Gents Recurve category.
At the end of the weekend, Team Warwick had earned a total of 56 BUCS points - almost double what was earned last year.
