A nice warm hall this year for the Guildford indoor WA25 on the 17th January 2016. The morning started of with snow falling in Sussex. Most of the east and north saw a few inches.

Jodie Shoots for England at the Junior National Indoors.

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Jodie and Jack went to the JNIC at a new location of Stoneleigh park. This was a very big occasion for Jodie as she had been selected to shoot for the England team. Also on the England team from Sussex were Marc Charlesworth and Kai Thomas-Prause. The England team cam second to Scotland by 1 point. Jodie came 12th overall with a score of 534, a bit behind her PB but that could be the pressure telling. Jack came 7th in the U16 junior gents compound. A very good venue for this event this year the lighting was a bit better than previous years but there was much more space. The venue also hosted the indoor back to back where Petra shot. This was shot in mini leagues and Petra won 2 of her 6 matches but this wasn’t enough to get through to the next round.

All of the members of ditching shot well, Petra came first in the Ladies recurve, Jodie was first in the junior ladies recurve and ben came second in the gents recurve.
