The Abbey Bowmen club annual Christmas indoor tournament ‘Jingle all the bray’ organised and administered by Stuart took place over the 1st and 2nd weekend of December. 19 archers over 4 disciplines competed for the gold medals in a very tight and competitive tournament. There were silly hats, Christmas music and friendly rivalry with six medals given out. Thanks to everyone who supported the event by taking part and congratulations to all the winners. The results are shown below.
The frostbite tournament is fiercely contested and each month points are awarded in ranking order for the highest score at each discipline, however, there are other points available for completing a round wearing a silly hat, for completing a round on bacon sandwich Sunday which takes place once a month and an extra point is added if a round is completed in adverse weather.
All the scores from a calendar month are amalgamated and points allocated. The start of each month the slate is wiped clean and begins again. The points are added to the previous month and the tournament takes place over 6 months from October to March. Medals are awarded to the 3rd, 2nd and 1st place positions at the end of March. The results are posted each month so that archers can keep tabs on their performance.
