As the senior team was also without a manager, I was nominated on Saturday to take on the role. This was my first time competing on the senior indoor team and I knew as soon as I saw the team that everyone was ready to go and shoot their best. This year’s team consisted of Gilbert Jamieson, Stuart Barby, Fiona Hirst, Gillian Imrie, Stephanie Clason, Kevin Duncanson, Matthew Wong and myself. Every one of these archers was a credit to their country and showed strength, passion and determination throughout the competition. The competition was very tough this year, but the recurve team placed 4th and the compound team took 1st in the home nations tournament! I am so proud of all my teammates for their outstanding performance and I can’t quite put it in to words how wonderful it felt to take first place on my indoor team debut. I’d also like to take the time to congratulate Sandie Graham, who took bronze in the individual longbow category.
I want to congratulate every member of the teams this year. I hope that you enjoyed this weekend and feel motivated to continue this amazing level of passion and skill on in to the new year and beyond. I hope that everyone reading this will join me in congratulating them for all their achievements, both individually and as a team over the weekend.
Robyn Geddes, Senior Team Manager
