Intercounties Match

The day was kind to us as far as weather was concerned and once again Lancashire won a fair few trophies. We won the Recurve but came second in the Longbow and Compound. Still room for improvement.

Although the ground was a bit soggy everybody did their best.

Again thanks must go to Pendle and Samlesbury for their efforts on the day and especially the buffet tea after the match. The catering staff kept everybody going with hot drinks throughout the day even though they are still in the process of building a kitchen in their range. Thank you from Lancashire and especially me, Elaine
