We ran the 2nd Vintage Recurve Challenge at WFCA indoor range on the 20th November, using bows from the 80’s and aluminium arrows. The round shot was a WA25 and the competitors were Scott Potter (WFCA), Paul Clay (Malvern) and Peter Webb (Malvern).
Paul and Scott were both shooting a Yamaha Alpha EX and Pete was shooting a Hoyt Gold Medalist. It wasn’t as easy as we thought and these bows were not quite as forgiving at this distance, so we had a few mishaps.
Paul was grouping very well and became the new Vintage Recurve Champion. He managed 541, even with a miss! Scott pipped Pete for second place with 528, and Pete was third with 526.
We had a few onlookers who will probably be dusting down their old bows for the next event, which is likely to be outdoors early next year.
