Are you anything like me? Browsing around AGB web site or World Archery for any news that’s interesting? If so, did you notice “Future World Archery Masters Championships” to integrate with World Masters Games.

For anyone, like me, over the age of 50+ (50+++++ for me, more like it!) “Masters” indicates a mature age although 45 or 50 still seems rather young to me. It is NOT the AGB version of ‘Master’ that refers to classification.

World Archery host the first “Masters” Championships this year in August at the Lausanne Excellence Centre while the next one will join the “World Masters Games” in Kansai, Japan, but not until 2021.

After that it will be 2023 but an “Archery only” event for us (home again), and then in 2025 as, once again, part of the “World Masters Games”.

Tom Dielen (World Archery) mentions 40+ and above while I would be goggle eyed at an age so young being called “Master”, as I can almost double that number, however, I would be pleased if AGB looked more closely at people my age as “valued members”. The other side of the coin is that we all have to admit to the age we have so AGB could accurately measure the membership, in demographic terms, however, that is for another day?

My last entry included………

Our long time visitor to the club, Ken and trusty sidekick ‘Fred’ have just returned from Lilleshall after taking part in the ‘National Disabilities’ event, sponsored by the ‘Worshipful Company of Fletchers’ alongside AGB. For those of you who would like to re-live Ken’s winning GOLD medal match at the AGB  Shoot at Joan’s pleasingly titled Lilly-Shell on Sunday 24th June, then just follow this link. Actually, you can follow most of the finals matches if you wish, and, if you have a ‘smart’ TV why not  make it BIG SCREEN?

The End….. For now.
