Indoor Archery Season, 1994-1995
This was my most consistent indoor season so far. I spent a lot of time
shooting at very short range on blank bosses, working on my form.
- Clophill 17th Open Portsmouth, 11th December
- Second in both single and double Portsmouth rounds. This would
have been a Scottish Record for
the double round (which wasn't hard, because nobody had claimed a record
for it before), but I didn't claim it.
- Hawks Open Portsmouth, 15th January
- Session first and first overall.
- Hertfordshire County Championships, 12th February
- Second visitor. Surprising that I won anything, since this was
my worst score of the indoor season.
- Clophill Open Portsmouth, 12th March
- Session first and third equal overall in the single
round, second in the double round. Not a bad result, considering that the
Australian team turned up to practice for the World Indoor. The double
round result was frustrating, because I had the same score as the winner
and one less 10 (because I shot less 8's!). Still, it was another
Scottish Record for the double
round, beating my earlier attempt.
- Braintree Open Stafford, 2nd April
- Third overall, which again wasn't too bad a result considering
that I broke up and shifted five tons of concrete in the garden the day
before. It's hardly the best preparation for an archery tournament! Oh,
and it was another Scottish
Record, but since nobody had claimed one since 1982 it's not too
great an achievement.
