Commonwealth Junior Archery Championships for Europe/Euronations
The WAA are hosting these championships here in Wales on the 2nd & 3rd of August at Llanharran Recreation Ground near Talbot Green. Our team for this event is Eleri Farr, Alice Reynolds, Ryan Pinder, Harrison Waterworth and Sam Young and they are all proud to be representing Wales on their home soil. The Championships will be decided on the Saturday when the archers will be shooting two 720 rounds. So if you are free on that weekend why not come along and support them or if you have just started archery then it is an opportunty for you to see the future stars of archery shooting together. If anybody is able to help us during the two days then that would also be appreciated.
The WAA would like to thank Blandy Jenkins Archers for allowing us to use their equipment and Wales Archery Specialists for their sponsorship of this event

Queens Baton Relay
The Commonwealth Games has already started but members may be interested to know that 2 of our members Jean and Jan Howells were chosen to carry the Queens Baton when it was here in Wales. Jean and Jan were part of the archery team which represented Wales at the last Commonwealth Games in Delhi. This picture show the 2 of them carrying the baton together and reflects how proud they were to be given this honour.
