2021 Garnet Dodge / George Ackroyd Memorial 3-D Shoot in Gloosecap

BTA on tour again.

Eleven members of BTA were heading out to the 2021 Garnet Dodge / George Ackroyd Memorial 3-D Shoot in Gloosecap, Windsor on Sunday April 18.

Some of you already know Gloosecap for it’s famous ‘Frozen Finger Shoot’ which is taking place every year at the end of February. Unfortunately this year the shoot was cancelled just two days before the event because of COVID.

So here we go again. Second try and off to Windsor.

Although the weather wasn’t very inviting, BTA had a lot of fun. This time we didn’t have to skate on ice or snow – we were a kind of mud pilots.

Unfortunately some people didn’t use their ‘auto pilot’ and fell. Thank god no serious injuries.

71 shooters attended the shoot. 50% were traditional shooters. YEAH! Traditional is becoming more and more popular again. Good news. Of course Robin Hood is still alive in our heads.

BTArchers did great.

Senior class female: Second place (same result) for Shauntelle Mombourquette and Laurie MacKinnon. Third place Hannah Stockley.

Master class female: First place Marlene Gavel and second place Bridget Benz.

The winner of the Trophy for the Highest single round in a Traditional Class went to John Cann. John is also the winner of his class with a total score of 681. WOAH!

Congratulations to everyone. BTA is so proud of its members.

Keep up the good team spirit…
