WAA Welsh Indoor Championships 7th January 2017

This was the first major WAA competition to be held since I took up my post as Chairman of WAA and I would like to say thank you to everyone involved in the organising and running of the event which was a great success. 

I am sure I will forget someone but special thanks to Jill, Rei and Jo for the pre competition organising and running the show on the day. Thanks also to Dave who I’m sure helped out before he went away. Thanks to Mike Woodfield who helped set up on the Friday evening and who helped with the running of the competition on the day itself.  Finally thanks to Steve, Jonathan, and Alec from Llantarnam who also turned up on the Friday evening to help set up and to Paul who provided us with some "nappies" for the targets of those with too much power in their bows!
