The Pilgrim Bowmen have hosted the annual Jack Oliver Memorial Tournament.

Archers from Grimsby, Louth and Spalding also competed in the event at the Mayflower Sports Ground, named after the late Jack Oliver, who was a founder member of the club in 1954 and a respected county archery judge.

Light winds were variable and caused some problems for archers at the long distances.

The rounds shot were, for the gentlemen, a York round comprising 72 arrows from 100 yards, 48 arrows from 80 yards and 24 arrows from 60 yards.

Ladies shot a Hereford round with the same number of arrows but shot from 80, 60 and 50 yards respectively.

Junior and less experienced archers shot a Bristol round, again with the same number of arrows but at distances according to age and ability.

Results: Ladies’ recurve - 1 Lynn Fisher (Silver Spoon Bowmen) 142-46-1000, 2 Nikki Cade (Sleaford Maltsters) 143-31-905; Ladies’ Compound - 1 Angela Brown (Sleaford Maltsters) 142-64-1102, 2 Gill Wood (Pilgrim Bowmen) 143-71-1099; Bristol 2 Lady - 1 Julie Almond (Pilgrim Bowmen) 137-33-847; Bristol 5 Junior Girl - 1 Louise Smith(LADDAC) 140-37-870; Gents Recurve - 1 Paul Adams (Friskney Bowmen) 122-21-640, Gents Longbow - 1 Roger Sale (GNAS) 51-7-227; Gents Compound - 1 Graham Crampin (Grimsby Archers) 144-91-1182, 2 Scott Stevenson (Pilgrim Bowmen) 144-90-1156, 3 Ian Clayton (Pilgrim Bowmen) 144-77-1124.
