Thank you to Ayr Archery Club for hosting the event this weekend.
Scottish Archery are looking to expand their judging workforce. There are opportunities for anyone at the moment aged 16 up who wishes to train as a Youth Judge or Judge and soon there will also be a Junior Judge category for aged 8 upwards. If you are interested in taking up this challenging but rewarding role you can get more information from our judging page where you will also find contact links to the current Judge Laison Officer for Scottish Archery - Liz Carrigan and our new World Archery Youth Judge Douglas Blyth who you can contact with any queries the page and linked documents don't answer.

Last weekend was very busy with the Junior Nationals also taking place down at Lilleshall. The Home Nations day, Saturday, was a difficult one for most, with high temperatures and tricky winds. The oppressive heat took it out of everyone.
There were 11 Scottish Records broken and Caitlin shot two British Records and came 1st in her category. The Scottish Team came 2nd in the Home nations with England 1st, and Wales 3rd. The full results for Saturday will be available by the end of this week
Sunday was much cooler and damp with thunderstorms around lunchtime and very heavy rain for a few ends, again a tricky breeze across the field.
Full Sunday Results - http://ianseo.net/TourData/2015/1215/IC.php Day 2 results in brief :
Struan 4th, 1154; Sarah 5th, 1129; Emma M 14th 1098; Joe 9th, 1132; Caitlin 1st, 1276; Geordie 5th, 1092
