Well done Eric.
Well done to Eric for landing a monumental two 1350+ scores at the Northern Area Champs. He won the Open Shoot and the Northern Area Gents title. As it was a FITA star shoot he has become one of a select few to earn the 1350 star award.
Eric has also been selected, for the first time, to shoot for Scotland in Dublin, Ireland in July.
Over 2 successive weekends, Ranald have won both the STAFAA and SFAA Scottish Championships in AMFU.
This after only picking the compound up again 2 weeks beforehand out of curiosity, having been shooting flatbow for almost a year!
Competition was tough for both weekends not just from fellow competitors but also the strong winds last week!
Ranald used all his experience and mental toughness to sustain quality shooting throughout.
It proves there’s life in the old dog yet and hopefully this winning streak will continue in both Field and Target disciplines!
Well done Ranald.
Ranald will continuing to shoot as a member of Banchory Archers in target archer.
