Vic Williams Shield: This is awarded annually by ballot to the member of Bristol Bowmen who has done most for the club during the preceding year. The winner is decided at the AGM and the presentation usually takes place at the championship. However, this year we switched the two over, so it was both decided upon and presented to the winner at the AGM. And the winner was – Pete Moore for all his hard work over the years as treasurer.

  • November – 1373. Monthly ranking third. Overall ranking third.
  • December – 1213. Monthly ranking seventh. Overall ranking fifth. Originally we were posted as monthly ranking sixth, overall ranking third, but one of the results had been lost in cyberspace, so the monthly figures were recalculated.

On 12 August Harry Francis entered his first competition. It was Bath Archers 50 Annual Hereford Tournament. Although Harry was the only one shooting in his group, he scored the highest of the three who shot the Bristol IV. He also set a new club record, one that was exactly as old as he is – it was set the day he was born. The results and a photo appeared in the Bath Chronicle.
