Huge thanks to everyone who was able to come our first tournament.

It was great to see so many friends from other clubs take part. Well done to all competing Archers – especially our visitors from across the border in Norfolk. We believe several Norfolk County records were achieved! Congratulations all.

Big thanks to the Ravens team too! Everyone pulled together to launch our first tournament in style!

And also thanks to Penny for the lovely cake! Safe to say there was not a lot left after the presentations.

More pictures from the day can be found on the Gallery.
