The Leicestershire and Rutland County Archery Association (L&RCAA) was formed in May 1950 and is run by volunteers from different archery clubs within the county. The County committee meets once a month (except December) at the Kirby Muxloe Sports Club.
If you are a club within Leicestershire and Rutland, you are entitled to appoint a representative to come along to the meetings and report back to your club.
We extend a very warm welcome to any archer within the county and we are anxious to dispel any fears you may have about coming to the meetings. It is a good opportunity to meet socially with your fellow archers and to hear how county business is conducted.
County Team Match Reports
A Reminder: From Team Captain
Can I ask that County Team Archers keep me up-dated with their latest 12 dozen round scores. I know that a lot of archers have shot other competitions, however, very few of you have emailed me your scores. If I don't receive up-dates this could jeopardise your chances of being selected for the County Team when the selection committee are considering best options.
Message from the Team Captain
As the County Team Captain, I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate the following Senior members of L&R County team, who were selected to shoot for EMAS against WMAS on July 16th, at Welbeck Archers, Notts. It was a fantastic win for EMAS who took back the Alan Staples Memorial Trophy. The lady compound team dominated the first 4 positions against WMAS. Several individual medals were won. Results will be on the website later when they have been published.
Gent Recurve - Steve Copson
Lady Recurves - Kim Copson and Anne Smith
Lady Compounds - Caroline Prime (CTC) and Carol Smith.
Lizzie Warner’s season continues to go well with success in the first two stages of the National Series. Lizzie felt that if she could make it to the ¼ finals in each of the stages she’d have done well, but she did rather better than that. She finished 3rd on the Saturday, which she was ecstatic about, and then went one better in the 2nd stage on the Sunday; she made it to the final but just missed out to an opponent she’d beaten on the previous day. She was delighted with her silver medal though. Amazingly her performance over the two days has put her at the top of the National Series rankings in the Women’s Recurve.
