RTAC’s superstar barebow (and now nascent recurve) archer Sam B has been busy closing up his 2015 outdoor season with a bag of potential national record claims – adding to his already impressive collection of certificates!
Shooting at the Hampshire Championships this weekend (September 20th), Sam shot his way to at least two, possibly three new bests. His dad Zep tells the story:
Beautiful setting (…at the Hampshire Championships), plenty of archers on 29 targets shooting Metric rounds. Carla Piper was our welcoming host, arranging a target just for Samuel, and a handful of jovial judges who made our day most enjoyable. Samuel claimed 3 National records, 40m with 260 points (though this may have been recently beaten but not yet updated), 30m with 297 points (breaking his own record) and finally the Metric iv record (which has stood since 1990 at 1149 points) with 1171 points. All in all a decent final shoot of the outdoor season.
Once again, our congratulations to young Sam (and his support team) for such outstanding results!
