Outdoor Archery Season, 1993

[Master Bowman award] A disappointing year, in which I did not shoot many competitions, and practiced even less, while attempting to finish my degree.

Summary

I only shot one 1200 Fita, and five 1100 Fitas. See the key for an explanation of the columns:

Fita average

  All  143.00  1165.88  1069  1207  42.0994   8

Competitions

Scottish Universities' Sports Federation Outdoor Championships, 2nd April
First, and first team. This year the S.U.S.F. Championships were changed to and Albion from a Long Western and Western, so that males and females were both shooting the same round. I nearly lost this one, and had to shoot the last dozen clean to win.
Forres Fita, 9th May
First. A bitterly cold day somewhere north of Aberdeen, where we drank lots of beer and occasionally dashed out of the shelter to shoot a few arrows.
West of Scotland Fita Star, 22nd May
70m distance award.
British Universities' Sports Federation Outdoor Championships, 19th June
Second, and member of the first team. The first time this championship had been north of the border, the Scots took the first three places. About time too.
Banchory Fita Thistle, 14th August
Second. Nice prizes; whisky, hampers of local foods and so on. Better than the usual plastic medals and trophies.
